Just getting started with Node-Red to manage my HassIO integrations. I'm trying to trigger the gate automation
For entry I have OpenALPR daemon running with a python fuzzy script to sent a HTTP Post upon match to Node-Red which then can control the gate.
For exit I'm trying to think of the best way, I can do a stream in reverse for a lot of the time, but sometimes the car will be parked in the line of that camera and as such will open for it. So I'd like to be able to try a different method.
I want to TRIGGER when my iPhone connects to bluetooth in the car. Chances are this will only happen when I need the gate opening. I have a few proximity trackers which I could then use to query home/away.
Anyone know where to start? Couple of hours of googling doesn't seem to have found much. Happy to go through Post, MQTT or anything else to send the input. Or equally if they have a better way to think around the problem open to that too, although this trigger would then be useful for other things like notification someones returning home etc.
