MQTT Help
#5
Thanks Mykel!  That is exactly what I needed to get things working.

The CQC documentation is confusing because it never shows/talks about the fact that the "topic" in the CQC config file needs to include the MQTT preface and MQTT command as part of the "topic".  In fact, in all the examples it shows that you only need to include the base topic (not even the full topic).  This is where I was getting stumped.  I thought I might need to include the command and tried that without success, but I never thought to add both the preface and command in the topic.

My plugs actually have one regular plug (power1) and one USB plug (power2) so I had to include the "1" or "2" on the end of my topic in the config file, but this was easy to determine.

Now I have to figure out how to get the plugs working again with Alexa.  I compiled and flashed a custom firmware that includes the Alexa emulation, but I cannot get Alexa to actually discover any of the Tasmota devices. I've read that this is very common and virtually no one has actually gotten Alexa integration without using something like NodeRed to do this.  I guess I have to learn NodeRed now. I have to have Alexa support before I flash the rest of my plugs to Tasmota or it's not going to go over well in my house!
