       --key  The name of the property.

       --int  Set value property of the property to a 32-bit signed integer. The value passed  is
	      assumed to be decimal unless it's prefixed with 0x or x for hexadecimal values.

       --uint64
	      Set  value  property of the property to a 64-bit unsigned integer. The value passed
	      is assumed to be decimal unless it's prefixed with 0x or x for hexadecimal values.

       --double

RETURN VALUE

       the HAL device database usually requires super user privileges.
