I want to control my curtains remotely. The hardware part is almost done. It consist out of a nodemcu, Hbridge motor controller, optical sensor (to count the motor rotations) and a geared down motor connected to the curtains. Hardware-wise it works. Now I need to create the software.
I want to access it on the devices tab, and adjust a percentage (just like controlling a light brightness) that correspond with the position of the blinds (0% fully open, 100% fully closed). Anyhow, playing a bit with the library, I think access to the attributes of the device is only available inside the flow charts? Am I correct?
Do I need to connect it through a virtual device which is linked through flows, or is there a direct way?
