indeed, we don't have support for Riello.
at least, none that I know.

I've no time nor motivation to try your above mentioned software, and
sniff the protocol.
but that would be the option to validate the protocol, and revere
engineering it.
I've once heard that they were only rebranding centralion units (which
can prove to be wrong, though!).
In such case, it would be interesting to try the blazer* and megatec* drivers.

if you do so, we would be interested in having some feedback.
