egctl - EnerGenie EG-PMS-LAN control utility
egctl NAME [S1 S2 S3 S4]
egctl is a program to control the state of EnerGenie Programmable surge protector with LAN interface. It uses native EG-PMS-LAN data exchange protocol version 2.0 or 2.1, not HTTP. When executed with the only argument it dumps the state of the specified device. If all five arguments are specified, it changes the state of the device and dumps the new state.
Configuration file is a table of devices. Each device is described on a separate line; fields on each line are separated by tabs or spaces. Lines starting with '#' are comments, blank lines are ignored.
- The first field
- Name of device. It is a string that will be used to address the device in the utility commands. It is not necessary to be the same as Server name in the web interface.
- The second field
- Protocol. Supported protocols are: pms20 and pms21.
- The third field
- IP address of device.
- The fourth field
- TCP port of device. (Power Manager client port in the web interface).
- The fifth field
Suppose a user has two EG-PMS-LAN devices configured as follows:
- 1. 192.168.0.10, port 5000, password hackme
2. 192.168.10.10, port 5001, password hackmesoftly
In order to control them using the utility the user needs to create a configuration file like the following:
- eg1 pms20 192.168.0.10 5000 hackme
eg2 pms20 192.168.10.10 5001 hackmesoftly
Now she can get the status of the devices with commands
- egctl eg1
and switch the state of the AC power sockets with a command like
- egctl eg1 on left left off
- user's configuration file
- system-wide configuration file
This program cannot modify the internal schedule of the device.
