A servo is device which can move to a certain position based on internal feedback. There is no need to add position switches and the servo will hold its position even if something pushes it aside. On the downside, there is no way to tell when the servo reached its position since it will not provide any position feedback to the software side.

This is an example:

    servo_min: 0.1
    servo_max: 0.9
      0.0: servo1_down
      0.8: servo1_up
    reset_position: 0.5
    reset_events: reset_servo1
    number: 1
      0.2: servo2_left
      1.0: servo2_home
    reset_position: 1.0
    reset_events: reset_servo2
    number: 2

Monitorable Properties

For dynamic values and conditional events, the prefix for servos is device.servos.(name).


: Value, stored in memory of what servo position should be, on a scale from 0.0 to 1.0.
