Hi everyone and Thank You for reading. I have built a dashboard with Grafana. The sensor readings comes to me from a MQTT broker and are stored in Inflixdb. Now I want to add a button on the Dashboard in order to toggle an actuator (a water pump). Can you help me and suggest me how to do? I do not see any widget in Grafana to add an actuator. Thank you for your help.

I think to have found a suitable grafana plugin that can activate/deacttivate an actuator by posting a value with a call api rest. The name of this plugin that can be easily donwloaded and istalled in the grafana is cloudspout button panel plugin. and can be found at grafana.com/grafana/plugins/cloudspout-button-panel
