This plugin is not brand new, but I just wanted to make sure it works fine before announcing it here. The plugin implements a UPnP Basic Device to advertise the Pimatic web interface to control points on the Local Network. For example, this may be useful for Windows users as the Pimatic device will show in the network view. Double-clicking the device will open the web interface using the default web browser. See also README.
If required, the plugin can also be extended to implement other UPnP device types to exhibit Pimatic devices on the network. UPnP provides standardized device types for lights, shutters, thermostats, and such. This may be sensible, for example, to integrate Pimatic with other home automation systems such as OpenRemote. It should also be noted that UPnP is the baseline technology adopted by DLNA. So, most TVs, AV Receivers, set-top boxes, and such talk UPnP these days.
