OWFS with hub support for Node-Red

I’ve built my home automation system based on Node-Red (as mentioned in Flexible home automation system) and I am using 1-wire sensors for humidity, temperature and to measure the daylight level.

Initially I used the Node-Red “node-red-contrib-owfs” package to communicate with my 1-wire server but I have multiple 1-wire hubs and the package simply does not support having an hierarchy of sensors so I created a my own node to resolve this – noreowfs.

Use the UI of the 1-wire server to find the attribute that you want to read and simply add to the configuration of the node and the value will be available in the output of the node.
