Oops sorry I meant to send that to the list.
Actually no, the HCS send out a continious stream of data $0x80..$0x81.. ..
with the current state of each item. If you send a command such as:
!0x12 0x00 0x02 0x00 (set X10 A1 On, that's 5 bytes sent) you will get a
response that looks like $0x12 (2 bytes) somewhere in the continious
stream of data.
