Proof of Concept: EDS Meshnet Controller Integration

The EDS Meshnet Controller is a wireless mesh sensor network that supports temperature, humidity, barometric pressure, and visible light (EDS say that other sensors are in development). These industrial controllers don't use the 1-wire protocol supported by the OWServer plugin, but they can be easily integrated into Indigo with the GhostXML plugin. Note that the GhostXML plugin presently presents these XML values as strings, so they need to be converted for use in triggers, etc.

1. Create a new GhostXML device
2. Set the target URL to http://your_ip_address/details.xml

The plugin will present the entire XML output from the controller in custom states:

Disclaimer: EDS supplied me with a controller and sensor for plugin development and I plan to add support for the Meshnet Protocol to the OWServer plugin in the future.
