IO modules are plug-in modules, for Pharos Designer 2.4 or greater, that expand the capabilities of the Pharos Trigger engine. Below are a variety of IO Modules that may be downloaded and quickly added to a Designer project. You can use them as-is, or customise them for your own requirements.
IO Modules make integration with third-party products, protocols and web resources much easier, as well as providing automation for current complex triggering requirements. Each IO Module adds its own application-specific triggers, conditions and actions to Designer, extending its core feature set.
IO Modules allow for integration with all kinds of equipment; e.g. building management systems, AV equipment, consumer electronic gear, smart home hubs, as well as web-based integrations with sites that can provide weather, sports scores, and public & private information via an API.
To install your IO Module:
- Click Modules on the Trigger toolbar to open the IO Modules management tool
- Import the .iom file for the device required
New triggers, conditions and actions defined by the IO Module will then be readily available for use in your project.
Here are some sample IO Modules that are freely available for you to experiment with or use in your projects.
