Default action is ON. --hcode=[a-z] set housecode for command. Defaults to housecode "A". --secure {optional} Add a random delay between 0 and 30 minutes before executing command. Useful for timer applications. Set the command to run at the EARLIEST time you want it to happen. --port=device 'device' should be the full path to the port, e.g. "/dev/ttyS1". Optional. If not specified, defaults to /dev/ttyS0 (COM1). --verbose {optional} Print status messages. ECHO exit (1); } }
