Bambulab Home Assistant NodeRed Integration Features

A checklist of features that my various bambulabs guides offer for the homeassistant, nodered, mqtt integration.

Note: A1 Series and X1E need testers for full functionalities.

This list will be updated as I release new versions of flows.
Currently, it is updated for:

Basic Flow v2.1.1
Advanced Flow v2.1.1
Bed Mesh Flow(s) v2.1.0 (works again with X1Plus)

Works with X1Plus!

Feature Type Device X1 Series P1 Series A1 Series Required Flow/Guide Note
Fan Speed
(Chamber, Aux, Part cooling fans)
Sensor, Control Printer ? Basic For P1P, if the printer is upgraded to include the extra fans, they will also be controllable. All fans are controllable within 10% increments

Home Printer Axes Sensor, Button Printer Basic Sensor will tell you which axis are homed (X,Y, and/or Z). Button to start homing process
Door Sensor Sensor Printer Basic Requires future firmware >= 01.07.00.00
Pause, Resume, Cancel Print Button Printer Basic
Set Bed and Nozzle Temp Number Input Printer Basic
Set Chamber Target Temp Number Input Printer X1E Only
Bed, Nozzle and Chamber Temp Sensor Printer Basic Will show both the current temperature of each sensor, and the target temperature of each. Only X1E has a target for Chamber temp.
Note: For P1P, there will also be a "Frame Temperature" which is to be used instead of Chamber.
