SYNOPSIS

pilight-daemon
pilight-daemon [OPTION]...
pilight-daemon [–server SERVER] [ –port PORT] [OPTION]...

DESCRIPTION

pilight-daemon is the main software of the pilight project. It is responsible for handling and interpreting received signals, as well as generating signals to communicate with and control various devices.

A configuration file is required. By default, /etc/pilight/config.json is used. Configuration files are written in the JSON format.

Consult the pilight manual <https://manual.pilight.org/> for details on how to configure and use pilight.

By default, the pilight daemon hosts a webgui which allows controlling devices through a clickable interface in a webbrowser. The pilight daemon runs a socket server and provides a REST API to interface with the pilight daemon.
