IP receiver(s) interface I can focus on try to wrap my head around the GENIE support. Once a receiver is being selected I have to make sure to query the list of miniunits connected to the servers.

The command
should return

"locations": [
"clientAddr": "0",
"locationName": "BONUS"
"clientAddr": "B4F2E8BA0C41",
"locationName": "OFFICE"
"status": {
"code": 200,
"commandResult": 0,
"msg": "OK.",
"query": "/info/getLocations"

Then I should be able to send commands directly to the sub-boxes adding the clientaddress in the queries…
At least in theory.
Any volounter out there that would help me test things out a bit?

I could try to introduce a basic support of the Genie before that.
