How to work with virtual devices in Ezlo Plus and Ezlo Secure

The easiest way to install plugin to emulate devices is quite simple and requires 2 requests.

First we need to execute:
{
"method" : "hub.software.update.plan" ,
"id" : "_ID_" ,
"params" : {
"operation" : "install" ,
"type" : "plugin" ,
"id" : "test_plugin"
}
}

The result of the previous request should be inserted into this request:
{
"method" : "hub.software.update.execute" ,
"id" : "_ID_" ,
"params" : {
"actions" : [
<Result of previous command>
]
}
}

Thats all, now we have installed virtual devices on your Ezlo Plus/Ezlo Secure hub.

Also see here the Vera to Ezlo Bridge plugin, if you want to create virtual devices on the Ezlo Plus hub that actually control real devices on your Vera hub.

I am having trouble logging into my Ezlo Plus via ssh.
Are there any posts on how to do that? I set up a developer admin account on the device.

Thanks!

Just login as the user root and the password printed on the sticker on the hub.

Thanks for the reply. I saw that post elsewhere and I should have been more clear. I just got a Production US Ezlo Plus. I took a picture of the bottom of the hub, don’t see anything that resembles a password.

I have Serial, Mac, Wifi, SSID, IC, FCC ID and DSK. Can I use one of those?

Thanks!

I see.

No then, none of those are root passwords.

The beta hubs had their passwords printed on their labels.

Need someone from Ezlo to confirm then why no root password has been given?

Is this thread for Developers only? Because nothing said so far makes sense to me as a Vera user, who’s accustomed to plugins easily making virtual devices like Switchboard.

Presumably ezlo controllers will become that simple, too? And why is there a Vote button on this Topic?

Good morning,

If the label is not in the controller, it might be in the box it came with. Otherwise, please tell us the serial number so we can look for it.

Regards,

Good morning,

With Vera controllers we had plugins that enhanced the features of different devices or allowed for features that were otherwise unavailable, sometimes they were created by us and sometimes by third parties. The new controllers come with some of these plugins as native but we are currently in the process of integrating lots of devices and features. As for the vote button, that is a feature on the forum to up vote post that users find the most relevant.
