Anyone still using the Miele@home (XGW 3000) binding?

Hi,

I’m currently working some evenings on the Miele@home binding (not to be mistaken with the new cloud-based binding), and now wondering how many are still using this binding?

For me it has been broken since I migrated to file-based configuration and I didn’t even notice for months. Now it’s working again, although my automations for this are somewhat limited at the moment. Mainly I have used it to enable boost on my recuperator (Danfoss Air A2) if the smoke alarm (Nest Protect) is triggered and the oven is running. :slight_smile: And of course to trigger an alarm notification if someone opens the fridge while no one is home.

With https://github.com/openhab/openhab-addons/issues/11297 there are some more use-cases as it is now possible to track power and water consumption per running program. Using rules this can be aggregated and used for statistical purposes etc.

Now, two concrete questions:

Just found this. I don’t really use this binding because it doesn’t work properly for me. The binding keeps on resetting the network address to 192.168.5.5, but that is not the address that I have assigned it. When I correct the address in the configuration parameters, it reverts to 192.168.5.5 after a few seconds. In the brief interim it appears to work correctly.

Hi @stephen_winnall,

Since I’ve recently worked on this binding, I might be able to help. So help me help you by providing some details:

  • Which version of openHAB are you running?
  • Which appliances do you have?
  • What is the correct IP address of your XGW 3000 gateway, and what is your netmask?
  • Does 192.168.5.5 mean anything to you? Has it previously been used? Is it on the same subnet?
  • Did you create the XGW3000 thing from auto-discovery?
  • If not, are you using UI-based configuration or file-based?
  • And last, can you enable trace logging and collect this information to be analyzed?

Best regards,

Hi Jacob

Sorry, I’ve been dealing with a lot of non-OH matters recently and have only just seen this.

  • Which version of openHAB are you running?
    2.5.10-1. I am working on migrating to 3.x but have nothing in place yet. I want a clean new architecture for my Smart Home.

  • Which appliances do you have?
    XGW3000, a fridge (K 35563-55 iDF) and an oven (H6860-60BPX); some not networked Miele stuff; and lots of other technologies.

  • What is the correct IP address of your XGW 3000 gateway, and what is your netmask?
    192.168.36.110 / 255.255.248.0 - My network is UniFi-based with a number of VLANs. The XGW3000 is in VLAN 32.

  • Does 192.168.5.5 mean anything to you? Has it previously been used? Is it on the same subnet?
    It has no meaning to me. The IP number is in VLAN 0, which is where my core network stuff lives.

  • Did you create the XGW3000 thing from auto-discovery?
    I cannot remember, I’m afraid.

  • If not, are you using UI-based configuration or file-based?
    UI-based.

  • And last, can you enable trace logging and collect this information to be analyzed?
    I suppose so. I’m not really familiar with the functionality of the Miele stuff.

Cheers,
Steve

Let’s get back to this when you have finished your migration to openHAB 3.2 (or later). If the problem persists after this upgrade, please send the logs and I’ll try to help trouble-shoot and fix this issue.

Hi Jacob

OK by me. It may be a few months yet, but I’ll get to 3.x eventually :face_with_spiral_eyes:

Thanks,
