    Installation & config


    Description

    modbusSeer is designed to interact with Modbus TCP devices(Only TCP devices supported as of now). The plugin will read/write your Modbus master devices on the addresses you add to the plugin. Devices will be created for each slave(register address) but the configuration of the device(buttons, status, etc) has to be done through HomeSeer UI as of now.

    Requirements
    • Running HS4 application
    • Windows .NET Framework 4.6.2 or later
    • Modbus to ethernet adapter. Recommendation to come.
    Installation

    Add the plugin as you would normally add any HomeSeer plugin:
    • Go to Plugins>Add

    A popup will tell you if the installation was ok or not.

    Once you have the plugin installed you can head over to Plugins>modbusSeer>READ ME BEFORE USE and there will be additional information about the installation etc.

    • Navigate to Plugin>modbusSeer>configuration

    • Second, debug: Enable this if you want extra logging(do so if required by me during troubleshooting).

      Hi,

      Hoping to get time for this soon. It will be a small fix, but I need to test it. So during summer i would estimate.
