More Home Control 2018 Updates

As of version 1.5.61 (now on 2.3.18 – May 2018) of the Home Control 2018 code,  I’ve  expanded the {debug} command considerably, added new Hitachi display commands and introduced a new MQTT topic called “otacomplete”. Here is the Bitbucket repository for all of this, referred to also as ESP-GO.

The Hitachi commands are documented in the manual.  As for the new(ish) MQTT topic, this is so that, should you choose to OTA update a unit remotely, you have some means to know asap that it is working.  In the event of an OTA update, the unit will send out the following MQTT message:

topic : otacomplete
payload: [the ID of the unit]

Typical serial on-demand debug output at the time of writing – for a test unit with ID “freddy” - with passwords changed to protect the innocent:
