I have a pile of Sonoff basic’s running Tasmota firmware and I have recently started trying to organize them into logical groups instead of the randomness that they currently are. Also rewatched a few of the videos Jon made about them as well. I am not seeing what i think I should be and I am sure it’s me.
I am creating a group for outside lighting as I have a number of outside lights that I want to be able to do timers with and group toggling and such. The group I have is ‘outside’, the topic is ’ lighting’ and each individual unit has a name like, ‘back_porch’. So outside/lighting/back_porch is the full topic, obviously. SO in the Tasmota interface, The client_id is the individual name - back_porch, the topic is outside/lighting and the way I figure it is that I should be able to publish a message like cmnd/outside/lighting/power TOGGLE and it should toggle all the modules that have the outside/lighting topic. It doesn’t work. I publish that command and I get a message on a terminal of TOGGLE on a terminal subscribed to outside/lighting but the Sonoff’s do not respond. I can publish cmnd/back_porch/power TOGGLE and the individual one will toggle. So what am I missing here?
