Simple 8 Channel Relay Plugin for Indigo

This plugin is using the HTTP protocol to access and direct an 8 Channel Relay board RELAY-NET-V5.8 from IotZone. It was built as a spinoff downsize of David Newhall's excellent plugin effort (see here).

All sprinkler related code has been removed. A subprocess is used with curl to transmit commands to the board through HTTP (normally on port 80). As the documentation for the board is lacking for the other supported protocols (port 1234 and Modbus port 502), this was the only found way to make it works (Many trials have been done with Modbus and older port 1234 protocols but nothing worked).

You can install the indigo plugin, downloading the zip file from the releases page here.
