To integrate a new device, we require a short list of the most important inputs to be integrated into the plugin. We prioritize and integrate inputs upon request. The inputs will be shown in the device mapper. The inputs are specified in the protocol document by the device manufacturer.

An official protocol document from the manufacturer. A protocol document is usually a PDF file with specifications of how the information is captured and sent from the device, the structure of the stream of data, data type specification, etc. This document is not a user manual.
