OzLCDController

This protocol controls a HD44780 LCD screen connected to the microcontroller. After the welcome message it has no events, but a huge variety of commands.

c=welcome&id=A47vvH&type=OzLcdController&pos=2&t=3

Parameters

Parameter Type Range Functionality
c String "welcome" Identifies the welcome message.
type String "OzLcdController" Determines the type of the device.
id String 6 characters (numbers, uppercase and lowercase characters) The ID of the device which is chosen by the microcontroller.
pos Byte 0-255 Determines the position of the device on the list of the ID manager of the microcontroller. Please make sure there are no other devices in the same position.
t Byte 0-255 Counts the number of events and responses sent combined. Counts from 0 to 255 then from 0 again.
