Is there anyway to get the Dashboard Switch to send its msg when the node red flows are deployed?
I have a switch which sends a Mode msg (i.e. msg.payload=away) When the flows are deployed, the state of the switch is persistant, but it doesn't send its msg.payload so the downstream nodes don't know the mode context.
I tried using an inject after 1 sec into the switch, but that sets the switch to the inject msg. I tried sending the msg to a function that uses Context to track the switch state, but the Context is persistant. I see there is now a Persistant Context feature, but I haven't figure-out how to enable local file storage yet. Before I go through that, is there some other / simpler what of accomplishing what I'am after?
