Maintenance Tasks

While setup is simple, we encourage you to familiar yourself with maintenance tasks such as:

  • Flashing a new operating system image to the SD Card via a USB Memory Stick.
  • Backing up and Restoring Recipes
  • Updating MultiPlug, or any Extension at Runtime using either a Internet connection, or sideloading a update file
  • Connecting to the Adaptor via USB, when a network connection is not available
  • Reading and Downloading log files
  • Using a MultiPlug Discovery application (Windows or Android) to remotely monitor the Adaptor

MultiPlug Extensions

Out-the-box and included on the operating system software image will be a set of MultiPlug Extensions with some default recipes. You can always install other Extensions to increase functionality of your MultiPlug installation on the Adaptor.


Recipes are the configurations for the individual MultiPlug Extensions which builds up the software solution of the Adaptor. They can be downloaded from a MultiPlug instance to keep as a backup or a golden recipe for other installations. Recipes can then be sideloaded (restored) using the same process. The Extension Multiplug.Ext.Recipe.File provides this functionality. Quick start Recipes are available to download below.
