API upgrades - manual updates, MQTT, and color output



  • I am in the process of building a Node-RED flow, to use f.lux to control Alexa powered lights and I realized the API could use a few upgrades:

    1. Manual updates - pushes to the API when manually switching between modes. It seems that the API only wants to send updates when automatically changing, not when manually changing modes.

    2. MQTT - this would be a nice option as opposed to HTTP. MQTT could also be used to sync the client with an external source.

    3. Color output - this would be great for mood lighting, so updating the API to include these with manual changes would be cool.

    This is the Node-RED node I am planning on using
