Have been taking a peek at FreePBX->Node-Red–>xxx integration and have followed through @lgaetz two videos on the topic.
My particular interest (as per Lorne’s initial experimentations) was getting access to a few custom devstate hints that I’ve been using on my FreePBX for years and seeing them on my home automation system. Thankfully through those examples I have a good start at cobbling something together which I think will work. Have been using Node-Red for all of 45 minutes now so definitely going to need some tweaking
Then (fortunately or unfortunately) in the middle of doing something simple (that I still know virtually nothing about) programming-brain kicks in and says if we will be able to see the status of these devices/hints in the home automation system… is there a way to in turn that around and use the automation system to set a custom device state rather than reading it? With the thought that I have dozens of BLF buttons on the sidecar of my phone which sit happily telling me when phones are on or off of the hook… why can’t I use one to see whether I forgot my garage door open?
So my question to those who have played with Node-Red-AMI for a little longer than I have is… is it possible to do this with this integration?
