I would like to announce and invite you to test a new version of BACnet binding. This binding works with openHAB v2 and finally offers a first class discovery. Sources are available at github, bacnet part is licensed under GPL3.
Among new features there is support for new object types (but still without valid support for Schedule…); very early, very experimental support for BACnet/MSTP. If hardware you run openHAB onto is capable of handling RS485 inputs you now can try to talk directly to device over serial interface. Be aware that end device should support segmentation.
