sudo cp -r /usr/local/lib/python3.4/dist-packages/bluepy/ /usr/lib/python3.4/ or sudo ln -s /usr/local/lib/python3.4/dist-packages/bluepy /usr/lib/python3.4/bluepy
Create a Mipow dir :
mkdir /home/user/domoticz/plugin/mipow where user is the user name used for domoticz that mean for a rpi user with raspbian : /home/pi/domoticz/plugins/Mipow

sudo service domoticz.sh restart
