How to connect a ESP8266 leestrip to Homey (Virtual device?)


#1

Hello,

I connected a digital led strip from Aliexpress to an ESP8266 running the McLightning software. I can crontrol the led strip via Web API and MQTT, I have it already connected to Home Assistant and from there to Homekit and Google Home.

But how do I connect it to Homey? I would like a device with on/off, brightness, color and scene control. I created a Virtual Hue device, but when I change something to the Hue Virtual Device I have to send out MQTT or HTTP, but there are not action cards with labels for the virtual Device.

Anyone knows how to do this?
