Working on my first QA design and would like to see what approach has been taken for a scenario.
I already have an existing framework where an IP camera will happily publish a http event when motion detected. At that point I can create scenes etc.
I am in control of the framework code so can make that payload look like whatever I want. What can't change is the push style event.
1. create a http server inside a QA myself and take it from there (push)
2. re-use something that HC3 already provides out of the box (eg. API)? (push)
3. get the QA to listen (subscribe) to a broker (say mqtt) and simply get my framework to put events there (pub/sub)
4. get QA to poll the framework. bad. (pull)
I'm leaning towards (3) but (1) would have less moving parts. Option (2) would be even better - is there a way to push events from outside the box...?
(On other automation system, there was a concept of virtual devices that did just this, but I guess in our world that's what QAs are for)
