Virtual items

Universal Controller items may be either virtual or real. You may toggle the item by changing configuration while the server is running.

Virtual drivers

If you want to build a virtual setup, the best idea is to use virtual drivers . EVA ICS distribution includes 2 virtual PHIs (drivers) which cover all typical needs:

  • vrtrelay Virtual relay driver
  • vrtsensors Virtual sensor pool driver

Both PHIs work like the real ones so all you need to switch your setup to production - assign “real” drivers to items or just load “real” PHIs with the same IDs.
