Plugins

EZLogic plugins are small applications which extend the features of EZLogic, adding functionality that makes it easier for users to complete tasks without knowing code.

MiOS is committed to helping developers create plugins which expand and enhance the core functionality of our products. Our open platform and feature-rich APIs are designed to inspire developers to make truly wonderful plugins of their own.

Users – install a plugin
  • Click ‘Plugins’ > ‘Edge Plugins’ to open the plugin management area.
  • Click ‘Marketplace’ to view all official and community developed plugins.
  • Use the plugin name and ‘Info’ icons to learn about a plugin’s features.
  • Click ‘Copy to My Ezlo’ when you have decided on the plugin you want to install:

  • Click ‘Manage Installations’ to install the plugin on the controller of your choice:
  • After installing, click ‘Manage Installations’ again then ‘Configure’. Some plugins require you to provide additional information before they will work:
  • Many plugins will create devices which you can view in the ‘Devices’ area. For example, the ‘Ezlo Protocols’ plugin creates 3 new devices as shown below:

You can control your virtual devices via dashboard tiles and you can also use them in meshbot triggers and actions.
