OR should hopefully show up in the pallet now its on npm
- Zigbee2MQTT (aka z2m) and everything you need to get that runnings :)
- MQTT broker, which would be part of setting up Z2M
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 :)
