  • Does your plugin support device replacement?

    Hi,

    Can I assign a different physical cast device to a given HS device? For example, if a device dies and I need to replace it, or when I upgrade my Hub to a Hub Max, I'll want to be able to somehow reassign the existing HS devices to the new cast devices so I don't have to reprogram anything. Can this be done?

    Thanks!

    Sure, you can change IP Address and device name/ID manually. I'm using device name as unique key, not device ID because ID can change. So device ID doesn't really matter, but if you replace a device - make sure the name is the same.

    And it should even work automatically - if you add new device to your network and give it same name - it should automatically update IP address for existing device. I implemented this way because DHCP can assign new IP address to the device, and plugin should detect the change, assuming the device name didn't change.
