Unistat Setup

Hi,

This looks like a really interesting plugin as i've got a variety of heater, humidifiers and fans that are in a greenhouse that have a lot of complex triggers and this looks like a great solution. As a 1.0 test, I'm trying to use the Unistat plug in to turn on a heater based on an MQTT device from a weather station. The device state is available and can be see in unistat UI

As I understand it, I have set up the device state -> the input device is my MQTT feed device -> and the extra2_F is the temperature variable. This number shows up in the Unistat device UI state.
The dead band is set for 2 which to my understanding would mean that the device will kick in 1 degree below the set point and off 1 degree above the setpoint. It is set to control two test devices Laundry room and office device when the temperature crosses a low setpoint.

What is driving me insane is I can't tell how to actually set the set point. Can you help me understand what I am missing here?

Thanks.

Re: Unistat Setup

Answering my own question. After much frustration the answer is staring me in the face. The device has a UI in the main window once you select the device.

This is where the setpoints can be set and altered.
