Hi Ezlo team…
With the current Vera HTTP API / Luup Requests, we can use the MIOS-In node within Node-Red to monitor the state / status of our Vera devices within Node-Red.
This can be used for all sorts of things. I am currently using it for monitoring door contact sensors that are in Vera. Node-Red is then used upon these changing door contact sensor states, to send TTS announcements to Google Home speakers when the doors are opened / closed etc.
Here is the current MIOS node.
Can we expect to see something like this in the future in Node-Red for the Ezlo hubs / APIs ?
Or perhaps a third party developer will integrate the Ezlo platform in this manner with Node-Red, but I won’t be holding my breath for any or many 3rd party integrations with the new Ezlo platform in the short term.
As Node-Red integrates with many more things than Vera can control natively, Node-Red is becoming very useful in other areas. For example you can control eWeLink / Smart Life WIFI devices in Node-Red and have Vera virtual devices just send HTTP commands to Node-Red to control such devices.
It also works in reverse using the MIOS-Out node you can change variables on devices within Vera.
