    Special note on mDNS (Zeroconf) and device Update rates.

    Sonoff devices use mDNS (Zeroconf) discovery services also for updating their status info.

    Which is interesting, but unusual solution.

    My plugins support many mDNS services - TmDS.MDns, Zeroconf, Mono.Zeroconf (Avahi and Bonjour).

    But only Zeroconf currently supports status update callback - so you can disable polling (set Update to 0).

    So if you use any other mDNS - you need to set Update interval (i.e. 2 sec) to receive updates from Sonoff devices.

    This also applies to Linux because Linux only supports Mono.Zeroconf (Avahi).
