[BTicino/OpenWebNet] New openHAB2 binding ready for testing

Thanks Massi for the great work on expanding this binding!
I don’t own any bticino sensor but appreciate the effort :smiley:

Hi There,
I’m running OH3.2 and my active power readings are every 30 secs. Any chance to get more frequent readings?
Apologies if this has already been discussed, but I’ve been out for a while and searched the forum for news on this topic without success.

I think is the bticino meter itself that “publish” the power measurament every 30 sec.
Did you check in the bticino app how often it’s updated?

In myhomeUp I see it’s updated usually every 30 sec, sometimes less but rarely

@llegovich it’s not possible to set more frequent readings.

I think is the bticino meter itself that “publish” the power measurament every 30 sec.

@enrico.mcc you’re right

In reality, the meter publishes every 30sec but there is also a way to “ask” for a reading, but this would require to implement a polling mechanism in the binding which I don’t know if it has been implemented.
The issue with 30sec readings is that if you want to switch off any devices when the power consumption is too high, you usually need to react fast (in Italy you need to ensure that the avg consumption in the last 2 mins is below a specific threshold, otherwise your power is going to be cut off). And you also need not to be over-reacting so you need to pick few readings and react on the avg rather than react on just one reading.
In 2 mins you only have 4 readings, but in order to have an impact on avg power consumption you’d better react after just 1 min, so 2 readings only.

Polling could be done also by a script running out of the binding: the answers caused by the polling script would be read by the binding as they are shared events that the binding is already reading.
Unfortunately I couldn’t find a script which is able to interact with the OWN bus and can be run on my RBPI.

I am thinking about bypassing my bticino load control using an opehab rule.
Something like:
Trigger: every time the power item changes
if the average value over the last 60 second (so at least 2 measurements) is above the threshold (in my case 6600W)
then check item 1 ( the first that should ne turned off) power consumption and if it’s above xxx turn it off.
Else proceed with the other items until one over the threshold is found and turned off.

Do you think that having only 2 measurements would be a reliability issue?

I have a similar rule and it’s currently working, but my rule reacts on just 1 reading as my threshold is quite extreme (5.7kW with 4.5kW contractual power limit) and the tolerance is allowed for 2 mins only.
What I see is that the rule reacts on peaks and cuts the power to the heat-pump, which is not ideal, that’s why I aas looking for more frequent readings.

I see that your threshold is 6.6kW so I guess you have a 6kW contract and you want to react on the +10% threshold: did you check the rules for the tolerance? In my contract the tolerance is +30% for 2 mins and +10% for 2 hours.

Yes I have a 6kw contract, that means that I can use up to 6.6kw with no limitation. So my rule would trigger over 6.6.
If you stay over 6.6 for more than 2 minutes than the meter will disconnect the power: the rule should prevent this from happening.
I agree with you on the need of using an “average” measurement, and from your experience it seems that 1 measurement in inadequate. So I was wondering if 1 minute observation period with only 2 measurements would be enough.
Or maybe 3 measurements should be used (so usually 90 seconds)

hello, thanks Massi, great work!
in the past version there was thing “LocalMode” : it’s developing is in your plans?

an other thing: Target Temp before was R/W but now is ReadOnly, correct?

the thermoregulation is already in developement. at the moment not all functions are implemented, see here:


most important what already works is channel temperature for actual temperature and setpointTemperature wich allows you to change the target temperature in the 3550 central, BUT for now only if you set in central to “manual”, if you have set “automatic” the value will be overwritten.

thanks! I know…

I’m using this binding since openhab 1.3 … and that things was working…

Hi All,
Happy New Year 2022 to you.

I wanted to share that I migrate from OH 2.5 to OH 3.2 and the OpenWebNet binding is rock solid. I am not having any issues at all.

Thank you

Hi Folks,
I see you have the same GUI as me. How do you find the adress of the device ?
I am not able to find this in the myHomeSuite software !?

How to get thescreen or the address of the devices please ?

In my home suite you can run a scan. If the physical configurators have been used then check the back of the device to find the address

Unscrewing 72 devices from the wall to find the adress will be not cool :frowning:

Is it not possible to have that window in the software ?

ps: i did indeed run a scan to retrieve the existing configuration

I dont follow. Is scan is working? The scan tab is show before you open the project/config for the S10. You are showing the open S10 configuration.

To get the addresses run a scan, Drag the devices over into the plant area and the save it as a new plant. I copy these into excel to make it eaasier to find things later and add them to the projects S10, Mh202 etc I save separate plants just for S10 and MH202 to keep the file size down.


I wanted to send you a pm with my *.plant file.
I did bus scan and import devices.
All i got is this screen but devices address not showing :frowning:

To see the device address you need to click on the module tabs. Each device can be more than one module… Top right panel

As you can see there is no address also in these panels :sob:
