Starting a homey flow from a Node Red Dashboard

Hi all,

Hopefully I’m posting this in the correct group and somebody is able to help me with the following;
I’m building a dashboard with Node Red and I was wondering if it would be possible to execute a homey flow through a button. Maybe some basic function, but I’m new at this :slight_smile:


Hi @Mikellio,
as far as I am aware it is not possible to start a flow directly. But you could ask the Devs of the MQTT apps.
However, if you have a virtual device (button) which activates that flow you could possibly trigger this button via MQTT.

You can use the app mqtt client. This will give a flow start card with the option to start the flow when a certain payload or topic is received.
