One of the new features of V-Control 3.7.14 is the ability of the build in web server to handle WebSockets. This allows us to establish a stable, bidirectional connection between a web application and V-Control. The benefit of a bidirectional connection is, that our web application does not have to poll the V-Control web server to get status changes. As far as a status change of a device occurs, the information is sent to the web application. All we need is to write a handler for this status message and show the new status in our GUI.
