    mcsMQTT vs. Updater

    I forgot to include the updated Cloud.html in the Updater package for in HS4 release. The HS3 release is not affected. If you are not using Sense Energy integration with HS4 plugin then it will not matter. If you are then you will want to obtain the file from a development version or or later interim update.

    With the HS4 version submitted to the updater there was HS3 code related to which HS Events are recognized. It has been there for awhile so is dependent upon user selections and manifested itself in the HS Log with a message starting with GetMQTTSend . The code was change to the HS4 equivalent in No change for this was needed for the HS3 plugin.

    This version also separated the Authentication from the Header setup on the URL tab of the Cloud page. This should make it easier for user to setup access to sites that require some form of authentication. In general mcsMQTT will take care of the authentication handshake where the user only needs to provide the username/password or authentication credentials in the setup. The extract from 2.20.2.x mcsMQTT.pdf is shown below. It should be obvious, along with the tool tips, to setup access to a URL-based server. The data from the server will be shown in the MQTT Association tab from where individual items can be associated with HS devices if desired.

    Of course each Server has its own expectations so if something is not able to be achieved then provide the info so the gap can be closed. delta is available at for HS4 and for HS3.
