    88== How it works == 
    9 The plugin periodically (period defined in I_GCAl.xml in UPDATE_FREQ in seconds. Default:21600 (6 hours))  contacts a google calendar and requests all calendar events in a window of UPDATE_FREQ seconds. Google Calendar returns all active events in this period as a JSON output. In that output it looks for the next event eventually that has "keyword" as name defined in the control tab of the plugin. If there is a such event, the plugin waits until the event starts and triggers to 1. When the event finishes, trigger returns to 0.

    1111== Install == 
     
    2020* Click on the device you created. In the control tab there will be 2 boxes. In the first one you have to insert the link to the calendar (The box is a bit small but it works). Then press set. In the second box you enter the event name you want to use (e.g. HEATING_ON). Then press set. You can leave this box empty to catch all events whatever the name.

    22 * You can use the button "check" to see if events in the calendar are picked up. Otherwise the plugin will check every UPDATE_FREQ seconds (this value can be configured).
