Node Red integration

Hi I'm currently using Imperihome in conjunction with Node Red and MQTT. It's working quite well but the interface is a little lacking. I'd like to use OpenRemote instead of Imperihome but I'm finding the whole http API a little confusing. I've done a few Google searches but there is only one example of using OR with Node Red.

Is anyone else using this setup, and if so could you please explain how you got it working? Cheers.
