node-red-contrib-globalcache 0.4.0

Global Cache (iTach & iTach Flex) for node-red

npm install node-red-contrib-globalcache


Global Cache (iTach & iTach flex) nodes for node-red.

iTach protocol documentation:

Install via NPM

From inside your node-red directory:

npm install node-red-contrib-globalcache

What's inside?

It includes three nodes:

  1. globalcache-controller : a unique CONFIG node that holds connection configuration for GlobalCache and will acts as the encapsulator for GlobalCache access. As a node-red 'config' node, it cannot be added to a graph, but it acts as a singleton object that gets created in the the background when you add an 'gc' or 'gc-device' node and configure it accordingly.

  2. globalcache-out : GlobalCache output node that can send GlobalCache, so it can be used with function blocks.

  3. globalcache-in: GlobalCache listener node, who emits flow messages based on activity on the GlobalCache bus. Not working in v0.2.0.

Message for GlobalCache output node contains fields:

  • payload - (REQUIRED) must be JavaScript object or a string, an example:



If one specify three parameters: unit_number, output and command, than all incoming string commands will be transformed into GlobalCache packet: [command],[unit_number]:[output],[command]

  • format - must be equal ccf or hexfor IR Commands
  • justnow - should contain true for commands that shoulds be executed just now (without Queue of commands)

Right now it not tested in all directions, working with IP2CC and WF2IR.
