ETH008 and lua (virtual device)



I bought this ETH008 relay card which you can controll with https commands.
Im both new to programming and lua.. now when I send a string to this IP card, I can see the relay will switch, but when I send the command trough a new created virtual device, it wont work...

Can someone help me along the way to set this up :
IP adress of the card is
port 17494
user : user
password : password
http string to switch on relay #2 for 5 seconds is :

what and how do I set this up within a virtual device ?

local _deviceIp = fibaro:get(fibaro:getSelfId(), "IPAddress");
local _devicePort = fibaro:get(fibaro:getSelfId(), "TCPPort");
HTTP = Net.FHttp(_deviceIp, _devicePort);
HTTP:setBasicAuthentication("user", "password") 
response, status, errorCode = HTTP:GET('/io.cgi?DOA1=50')


deze in string invullen. en je IP adres en poort in algemeen invullen.

Dit zou de klus moeten klaren, maar ik krijg het niet aan de gang. Heb jij het inmiddels aan de gang? zo ja hoe dan? want bij mij werkt het niet onder 4.160.

Hi guys,

I use two of these boards aswel, in combination with the VD above.

Now, however, I would like to see the state of the relay in the VD.

Is it possible to read out the status of the relay? I think it should be possible because in the app (from robot-electronics) it shows if the relay is on or off.

Once I know how, I can adapt the VD accordingly.
