Continuing the discussion from New smart wifi radiator valves from Shelly
Thought it would never happen again, but finally I have ordered a Shelly TRV to experiment. But not quite sure what is the best way to control it.
For my other Shelly devices (mostly plug-S) I use MQTT instead of http communication. Because it seems a bit of waste to keep polling, while the Shellies can simply send a message via MQTT for each status change.
Since the Shelly TRV's run on battery, I would like to mimimize the traffic as much as possible. So I "think" mqtt again would be adviced more than http requests. However no messages arrive from my TRV in the input topic. And the MQTT broker is configured correctly in the Shelly web interface, because I can open and close the valve via MQTT commands...
Does anybody has tips for me that I can try??
@mudwalker: do you have meanwhile become more experienced in using these valves via MQTT? It was very kind of you to share your flow at the time being. In your old flow, you were using http requests to control your valve. Is that still the case, or did you switch to MQTT commands meanwhile perhaps?
