Press it.

A new node will be created (you get notified to refresh the browser to see it on the workspace).

Lets use the Display node to see the result:

Lets now use the Debug node to see the technical internal content of the flow.

Edit the Debug Node to display the complete msg:

In the Display panel,

  • msg.payload 1 means presence on
  • msg.payload 0 means presence off
