Similar to local LAN HTTP requests, I'd like to be able to publish a message to a local MQTT broker when my Knocki is triggered. It would be great if Knocki supported MQTT.
At the moment, I'm experimenting with local LAN HTTP requests and a HTTP to MQTT bridge, but the local LAN HTTP requests aren't working.
I understand that local LAN HTTP requests are not as fully featured as cloud HTTP request tasks (e.g. no HTTPS/TLS support), due to the limited CPU and RAM in Knocki (or other constraint, correct me if I'm wrong here). MQTT is a more lightweight protocol than HTTP, I feel it would be a great fit for Knocki. MQTT can support TLS and authentication (username & password), but I personally don't use either of these, I would have thought plain open MQTT would be even easier to implement.
What are people's thought?
