I didn't want to move the entire thread over, but I added a moderator note on the original post that points to both the plugin and its sub-forum to save folks time from having to read through all the posts.

Thanks again for the great contribution!!

Version 1.0.0 was released today. It adds support for native sprinkler devices, improved logging, and it makes the cancel button on the device editor actually cancel and revert changes.

New forum topic for this plugin is here: viewforum.php?f=302 - Please continue discussion about this plugin in the new forum. Jay, maybe we can move this topic to that forum? Not sure how that works or if it even makes sense.

You nead to change in the web app that you dount whant the board to activate the relay in input for example number one, works perfect for me...

Yeah DomoPat kind nailed it. This plugin polls the relay board for the input states. If you need to catch a quick state change this will not work. I have been unable to find any way to get the board to "send out" data, so the inputs are not super useful to me. Others have found uses for them, but motion sensor type data is not a good fit for this device.

The same auction I got this board on months and months ago is still up on eBay. Perhaps reaching out to them and asking for a software/firmware update is an option. This device runs an internal web server, there's no reason it couldn't be programmed to hit an API when an input changes; someone just needs to plead with the manufacturer to make it happen. Just a thought.

Ok. That frequency is not any better than my current setup. I was looking for cheaper option than getting multiple fibaro universal sensors.
Never mind.

It would be possible with some sort of circuitry to adapt the current driven PIR to the tension driven input of the board. But, and it is a big but, the inputs on the board are polled by the Indigo plugin every X seconds, where X is 2,5,15,30 or 60 seconds. If you use a short period you might overload the network and or board and if it is too long you might miss some of the PIR action.

What you need is an interface which will push the PIR changes to Indigo, and this is more difficult to find.

I have been trying the latest version 0.2.4 of the plugin other a few days, and happy to report it works perfectly for me too. Thank you for this plugin, it will help eliminate a few X10 relays !

Haha. Yeah a few of my walls are plasterboard but mainly brick. I'm considering a few places drilling through outside wall, running cable in conduit and drilling it back in, rather than work out how to run internally!!

There no way I'd be able to get a wire from my server rack to my hot water tank without a lot of mess.


I've become a professional at sheetrock repair. Not sure how else to put it. You gotta cut some holes to run wires, especially in a two story house. And yeah, most houses in the US are wood and sheetrock. There are plenty made of brick though, but you wont see me buying one because I can't run wires through bricks. :P

That's great! It's cool that you can get so much done with just one physical device.

I have a two-relay version that I'm still looking to toy with.

It works for me,

Have 7 outputs and 4 inputs

Don’t use 12v dc only use 5v dc
