Customers sometimes ask us if it is possible to use our modules without integrating our programming library. Indeed, at first sight, the library can seem unnecessarily complex when you only want to switch a relay or read a temperature. So the answer is yes... but no. There are ways to reduce the memory footprint of our library, but not to the point of reducing everything to a few manually forged USB packets. Let's look at it in detail.
