I would like to use shelly1 but have not yet found the right communication for me.
Since I only have switches installed at home, I would like to query the switch with shelly1 and send the status to node-red and then use it to switch on the hue-phillips lamps.
I go this way to not have to disconnect the lamps from the power supply.
I have connected the switch to pw input. It also works, the relay clicks. I use node-red-contrib-shelly from @windkh to control shelly from node-red, but this node can not output the status of sw.
so i use http-request and query the ip address for status. I have to do this with timestamp repeat every 1 sec.
I don't like this solution so much.
Would this be a better solution with mqtt? At the moment I can't get mqqt connection established. I am using aede's mqtt broker and it also says connected and all my mqtt nodes are connected but the shelly is not connected when i query the status.
thanks for the help
