    Status & Initial_Value Questions


    I really like this plugin. I am running I have a couple of questions.

    1. Does the status device, shown below, that is created when the Pi connects ever change status? What is its purpose?

    2. Could you give a brief explanation of the initial Value settings when a GPIO is set to an output on the pi? On and Off are obvious. What are the functions of "No Override" and "From Device"

    1. No it never change status. This is how HST advise to do it, the root device shouldn't have any status or control and is just there as the parent of all the feature devices (in this case GPIO)

    "From Device" means the GPIO is initialized with the value or the corresponding HS device
    "No Override" means the plugin does not set the GPIO when it starts, the GPIO value remains whatever it was before the plugin started.
