This is a X-post from the Home Assistant Community Forums.


Does anyone know of a desktop notifier for MQTT? Something that would sit unobtrusively in the systray and pop up a notification if something happens? Such as “Washing machine finished” OR "door left open" OR "package ready for collection" ?


I’ve found mqn 1 but I wasn’t at all sure how to install it or even if it was compatible with Windows 7.


I’ve found KR MQTT Notifier 4 but that’s Win 10 only.


Then there’s this Node offering 1 which just says “desktop” but surely it’s targeted at a particular platform? Probably Unix?


There’s also Desktop Notifier 1 but it looks like you’d have to cobble together a notification chain…like run an MQTT client which in turn passes info to DesktopNotifier.


Am I over or under thinking this??!!

Thanks
