Our new plugin for Ezlo controllers, the Site Sensor plugin is now available on the marketplace. You can install it on your controller and start using it immediately.
The Site Sensor plugin is used to periodically make requests to a remote site.
With the Site Sensor plugin, you can configure a site to send requests to with an interval of your choosing, and create a sensor device for that site. You can then set actions based on the response you receive. These actions can be based on a certain response, or lack thereof.
To add this plugin to your controller, navigate to the Edge Plugins menu, and then to the Marketplace tab. Click the “Copy to my Ezlo” button and confirm your action in the following popup window.
Then navigate to the My Private Plugins tab, and click the Manage Installations button for the Site Sensor plugin. In the following popup window, click the Install button corresponding to your controller. Once the installation is complete, you will see a confirmation message in the top right corner.
You can now configure this plugin by clicking the Configure button. Give a name to the device to be generated by this plugin, specify the request interval and the URL to send the request. You can also
- Specify the HTTP method under Request Type,
- Provide username and password credentials if logging in is required
- Provide HTTP header, data, and content type if needed.
Click Save New Configure when done. You will see a confirmation message that the configuration has been saved successfully and that the device has been successfully added.
You can then navigate to the Devices list and see that your device has been created.
You can now use this device in your MeshBot automations.
