Indigo Irrigation Caddy plugin

I had known about the Irrigation Caddy for a while, but was concerned about what I believed was the lack of a documented and supported API. However, a recent update to this thread gave me the confidence to finally order one. Of course, the first order of business (after setting it up, of course) was to write an Indigo Plugin for it.

I'm happy to say that the plugin is working great and supports the following:

  • Updating of all states exposed by the API
  • Activate/deactivate system action
  • Manually run program action
  • User authentication
  • Support for multiple Irrigation Caddy devices

As with my RadioRA Indigo plugin, I'm making this freely available for others to download and (hopefully) enhance.

The download and source code are available via bitbucket.
