    Xiaomi/Aqara MQTT Sensor Nodes

    Installing:

    Directly from Github, goto your node_modules directory.
    In Docker you should goto /data/node_modules THEN run

    npm install marc-gist/node-red-contrib-xiaomi-sensors

    To Update: you do the same thing.

    OR should hopefully show up in the pallet now its on npm

    Requirements:

    1. Zigbee2MQTT (aka z2m) and everything you need to get that runnings :)
    2. MQTT broker, which would be part of setting up Z2M

    General Notes:

    z2m will send payloads in JSON format to the MQTT broker.

    In Node-Red, you create a MQTT node to capture those payloads and feed them into one of the custom nodes.

    The goal here is to simplify nodes. I was finding that I had numerous 'function' nodes to deal with the MQTT data

    Subflows didn't work well because you lose the ability to have status and debug messages (looking like Node-Red is changing that in v20, and works, but these now add a few more features. Also, you don't have to create your own subflow anymore :)

    Install

    npm i node-red-contrib-xiaomi-sensors
