I apologise. I am only wanting to publish to the ..... broker.

I have Tasker installed and found a plugin for it.

I have it working. Just installed it and sent a message.

You can get a pretty full blown node-red on an Android phone with Termux and Termux-API from the play strore followed by apt install o fthe node-red components.

Just something to file away for future reference if you weren't aware of it. I use it and a cheap android phone with TING "pay as you go" service to Send SMS messages via MQTT messages to by central broker.

Works well using Node-RED on Termux, I've used it as an alternative to OwnTracks just to see if it worked, which it did and was easy to set up.
