  3. Change the property "address" to a string composed of HWG-STE-ADDRESS:SENSOR-ID  where HWG-STE-ADDRESS is the ip address of your device and SENSOR-ID is the id of your monitoring sensor. An example address can be "ste.hwg.cz:215 The plugin is able to read any relay status change and update the object one.
