I want to integrate a RF button such as my doorbell with HA. The signal reaches HA without issues as the following automation works flawlessly.
- alias: Wall Switch Button 1
- service: notify.pushbullet
message: Button 1 pressed!
My problem is that I do not want to use that trigger throughout my configuration because it causes lots of unnecessary duplication of RF codes. Is there a clean way of integrating this RF button in such a way that its RF codes are not used in triggers throughout the configuration? I want to isolate the implementation detail of the RF code from the rest of the HA configuration.
I was thinking adding an automation which simply “catches” the MQTT message and generates a dedicated event representing that button press.
Is there a way to do this?
