node-red-contrib-ffpass 0.1.3

Use Node-Red to start/stop the engine and lock/unlock the doors on your Ford vehicle. Based on the ffpass npm module.

npm install node-red-contrib-ffpass

This module enables you to control your Ford car via the FordPass API within Node-RED. You can find the module in the Node-RED library.

Nodes

ffpass_config

You can configure your FordPass login details within this node. It's created automatically in the background as soon as you add one of the following nodes. You configure it by double clicking any of said nodes and editing the "config" parameter. There you can also create new configurations.

ffpass-status

Doesn't take any input. Fetches the status of the given car via the API and outputs it as msg.payload. The status received by the FordPass API is a big json object that contains a lot of data. This could be split into multiple individual nodes in the future to provide easy access to certain fields.

ffpass-command

This node reads a command from the msg.payload dynamically and executes it. The command must be any of lock, unlock, start, stop. The output of the command will be written back to msg.payload. Not everyone is happy with providing the command dynamically, so there are also individual nodes for each command.

ffpass-lock

Doesn't take any input. Runs the lock command and hence locks the car. The output of the command will be written back to msg.payload.

ffpass-unlock

Doesn't take any input. Runs the unlock command and hence unlocks the car. The output of the command will be written back to msg.payload.

ffpass-start

Doesn't take any input. Runs the start command and hence starts the engine. The output of the command will be written back to msg.payload.

ffpass-stop

Doesn't take any input. Runs the lock command and hence stops the engine. The output of the command will be written back to msg.payload.

⚠ Important note

ffpass needs at least Node 12.x because it uses the fromEntries() method. Hence this module currently doesn't work with any earlier Node version.
