Struggling newb here guys - be gentle.
I have recently purchased an EmonPi and have happily been logging data for a month or so.
After a while - I decided I needed to actually use the data as a basis for controlling stuff.
Enter NodeRed. I’m running on v15.3
I have several TP-Link hs100 smart plugs, and so wanted to use these.
I found what should be the ideal node - node-red-contrib-hs100.
I have attempted to install it - first using the palette manager. and although it showed up in the palette at the first attempt - it would not work, when used in a flow.
I then uninstalled it using the palette manager and attempted to install it again manually - using putty to ssh into the pi.
Appeared to work. restarted NodeRed - but no Node in Palette.
The node appears in the list of nodes installed in the palette manager - but if I click on the >1 node button - the node is greyed out.
Has anyone had any success with this hs100 node.
I successfully installed the node-red dashboard stuff - it showed up and worked fine -
All suggestions gratefully received.
But could you please assume I am a 60 year old idiot with little to no coding / Raspberry Pi experience - coz I am
