This module extends the capabilities of the Yombo Gateway by adding the ability to monitor a text file for device commands.


The primary purpose of this module is to demonstrate creating modules and using the Yombo Filereader utility. The Filereader) utility allows for easily monitoring a file for updates and support file skip-ahead when the gateway restarts.

With this module, you can simple echo in a command to be peformed:

echo "bathroom light on" >> monitored_file.txt

This is useful if you want basic scripts or other utilities to control automation devices.

Warning: Be sure to grant write access only to users and applications that should be able to send commands.

The actual commands are processed by the YomboBot module and is required.


Simply mark this module as being used by the gateway, and the gateway will download and install this module automatically.
