Hi as I wrote above, I would love to have such a binding. Of course I can test with my coffee maker and the oven in a other household that is in my reach. To discuss how I can help you further more just send me a PM!
I would also be very interested in getting the status of my dishwasher to show up in OpenHab and use the remaining e.g. as a variable to dim down a Philips Hue bulb or let it blink once the dishwasher is ready.
Thanks a lot for both checking the Developer infos from Bosch and also for openen this thread to collect the interest for this binding!
Thank you for all the replies. At the moment it would be nice, if someone could help me programming, before the binding is ready enough for testing it.
If you want to help me programming, then send me a PM and I will explain it to you and help you.
This is right up my alley! I’m on the Siemens side of Home Conect… Oven, Fridge, Washing Machine and Dryer are all on Home Connect. I also have a dishwasher that I can’t connect because my Ubiquiti Unifi Home Network doesn’t support WPS…
are you going to proceed with the developement or is it now just up to the community to improve/complete?
“… not complete local…” What is that supposed to mean?
Is the BSH cloud service just required for the authentication procedure? So can we keep the communication with the appliances in the local network (after some initial authentication phase)?
I’ve read in some Bosch manual that “offline” use (read: without internet connection) of the Home Connect app inside the local network is possible but “…not recommended for permanent use…” because you will probably miss firmware updates for your appliances and you can’t use the remote control features while not connected to your local network.
If this would be really the case, the app uses some direct link to the home appliances without the (frightening?) loop via some cloud service.
I guess the demand for this binding will raise if the above proves right
