Just a note... the UPB plug-in can support the rain8 by setting up separate appliance modules at the zone addresses. It does not support it as a specific rain8 device though.

You can also write your own software if so inclined. I suspect the HST UPB plugin will not work with it since it does not look like any other UPB device and is not visible to UPStart.

How does this work? HS gets the UPB device and link definitions from a file exported from UPStart. If UPStart doesn't recognize the Rain8UPB, it won't put the Rain8 devices in the export file. How do you define them to HS?

When using xapmcsUPB the user setup allows the modules to be itemized and this will augment the UPStart export. When using xapmcsUPB via Homeseer then each valve and input is mapped into tha Homseer device code and commanded ON/OFF as any other Homeseer device. The input count will appear in the device string and device value of the device when the counter from the rain8upb changes.

I believe Jon is indicating that if you define 8 UPB appliance modules so they have the same addresses as one Rain8UPB controller, then you can control the appliance modules to effectively control the Rain8UPB.

The production Rain8UPB has an input that is assigned an UPB device id. I am not aware of another UPB module that could be used in UPStart to act like a counter input, but Jon may know of one or other workaround to deal with it within the Homeseer plugin.
