Home Automation: Setting up Node-Red under Docker on Synology NAS, with MQTT and Telegram Integration

Previously I installed some sensors around my home, and got them to update their status into an MQTT Message Broker. The Message Broker acts as a central nervous system for the apartment, making the status of sensors available to everything. Knowing status alone is not enough, we must be able to "do" things with the knowledge.

Many moons ago I set up a sonoff basic power relay with tasmota firmware and a Mosquitto MQTT Message Broker on a raspberry pi so that I can switch my 3D printer on and off remotely.

Unfortunately, when I got there, it turns out there was a mix up and they didn't have actually have them there...

Port 80 on the NAS is used by the Synology's DSM interface, so my web server needs to run on a different port.The domain name for the web site has a A rec...
