Configuration

With this type of board you can control the powered behavior of any electric device in your environment, meaning you can turn on/off electric devices.

How to control a relay

  • Right click on the light object in the environment to show its configuration panel
  • Change the property protocol to phwswethv2
  • Change the property address to a string composed of ALIAS:RELAY_NUMBER:TAG where ALIAS is the string set in the configuration file (phwswethv2-manifest.xml) to identify the board. RELAY_NUMBER is the relay used to control your device (from 1 to 16). TAG is one of the following string: led (for relays), pot (for analog inputs), btn (for digital inputs). For example default:1:led identifies the first relay on a board called default.

The plugin is able to read any relay status change and update the object one.
