plugin for web server bticino

I've downloaded the "freedomotic_own_test.rar" version for bticino myhome, unzipped, and edited the xml pages in order to change ip values to connect to f453av web server and all works fine!!; i presume this version contains by default the plugin for openwebnet gateways and for web server in particular. The outcome is spectacular if you think that i've spent much time to modify a client openwebnet written in c# into a synoptic which works only as a light control. Very good work.
