Assistance with Basic Input to a Node

I am using this Node
node-red-contrib-tplink (node) - Node-RED (


Control a device by setting its properties.

string | Object

  • true | on - Turn on the device

I am simply trying to turn it on.

I am using a change node to set the msg.payload to String "on" or "true" but it doesnt turn on the device. I even tried msg.payload.on without success.

I assume it is something super basic, but if you could point me in the right direction please? Thank you.

I haven't used that node but looking at the spec it appears that it also interprets msg.topic. I suggest adding a Delete msg.topic to the change node, unless you are sure the topic does not exist.

That was exactly it! Thank you
