Make sure that the computer running [thing-it-node] is connected to the network where your Sympholight Devices and Objects can be reachned via IP and obtain the Sympholight IDs for the Devices and Objects you want to represent in [thing-it-node]. These will be used in the [thing-it-node] configuration.uFH5n
Initialization and Start of [thing-it-node]
The [thing-it-device-osram-sympholight] Plugin is installed with [thing-it-node], hence there is no need to install it separately.
The Plugin supports Autodiscovery, hence you only have to create a directory in which you intend to run the configuration, e.g.
mkdir ~/bacnet-test cd ~/bacnet-test
and then start [thing-it-node] via
