MQTT support

Hi!

For integration to a Smart Home, does Nuki have thought about an MQTT integration into the bridge, to publish it’s state, and let control the SmartLocks?

Most (I would say, all) home automation software supports MQTT, it is an easy to implement protocol, and it is an open standard.

It would make special callback handlers unnecessary.

I don’t think it is useful to extend the bridge for every possible feature.
The (local) Web API is something that is already there and can be extended. There are other MQTT capable systems to integrate with the Web API if you wish.

I have written a service that enables MQTT for the bridge if you’re interested: https://github.com/bluewalk/NukiBridge2Mqtt

Just to say a last word:
MQTT is not “every possible feature”.
MQTT is a communication standard that is integrated in every modern home automation software.
It is much more reliable and easier to handle than the currently used web callbacks. Not a single client needs to implement device-specific things only for getting a push notification working. It simply works as mqtt is designed as a multi-client push protocol.

Unfortunately the C# implementation is difficult to use on a Linux/Raspberry.
