I’m totally new to openHAB and automation at all.
Out of the wish to install a roller shutter engine I started also my personal project to openHAB.
At first I tried several times the installation of openhabian but the connection via browser failed around 10 times. So I decided to start with manual installation based on Raspian Buster lite and following the instruction of this great forum around Java installation and so on.
I got openHAB installed and can access via web browser http://openHAB:8080/
I already installed some bindings and learned the need to write text files for
home.items stored in
Group gEG // Gruppe Erdgeschoss
Group g1OG // Gruppe 1. Obergeschoss
Group EG_Ost “livingroom” (gEG)
Group EG_West “kitchen” <EG-West-Küche> (gEG)
Group EG_West “WC” (gEG)
Group EG_West “Kammer” (gEG)
Group 1OG_Ost “kid” <1OG-Ost-li> (g1OG)
Group 1OG_Ost “work” <1OG-Ost-re> (g1OG)
Group 1OG_West “sleep” <1OG-West-li> (g1OG)
Group 1OG_West “Bad” <1OG-West-re> (g1OG)
Rollo Rollo_EG_Ost “Rollo kitchen” (EG-Küche)
Rollo Rollo_1OG_Ost “Rollo kid” (1OG-Ost-li)’
home.sitemap stored in
'sitemap home label=“Home menue”
Group item=g1OG label=“1OG” icon=“firstfloor”
Group item=gEG label=“Erdgeschoss” icon=“groundfloor”
I cant find anything more than the bindings in my PAPER UI.
Googel, as my helper, hints me to use openHAB designer. Where can I find this openHAB designer?
I have not seen a designber foler in openHAB.
Here my folder structure
Maybe I have total missknowledge in usage of different UI in openHAB but all the different UI seems to me not the right at this stage of installation/configuration.
BTW I read something about an additional configuration file in openHAB on another place than ‘/etc/openhab2/’ but I can’t find this folder and in ‘/etc/openhab2/’ is no ‘configuration’ folder.
Any help is verry wecome
