    Ditching this plugin

    I have been frustrated by the limitations of this plugin and the fact that the author is no longer developing it, so started looking for a different approach.
    I now have 2 way communication with Homeseer 4; inputs, outputs, alarm state, flags, timers, messages and responses - all for free!
    Research led me to a Python script;
    I got this up and running quite easily.
    I then installed mcsMQTT plugin, thank you Michael McSharry It took me a little while to get the hang of MQTT but I got there.

    Hopefully there’ll be a big tidy up of all abandoned or unsupported HS3 plugins soon. You’ll probably find there’ll be less of a need for such a range of plugins in HS4 anyway as you’ve clearly demonstrated in this example.
