I didn't really know what MQTT is....
Or I would have tried it out.
I'm new to the whole home automation thing and from my limited understanding, it requires a server like a raspberry pi to run it.
I just have a few bulbs that I use with google nest or google home app so I thought it would be convenient to control them with a knob.
I put in the request for a plugin as I could control the bulbs without having to set up a server.
I'll try wrapping my head around the mqtt/home assistant thing in the meantime.
