I’m new to OH3. I already did some things on OH2 but I’m struggling with OH3 now. I’ve got an ESP8266 with ESPEasy which sends the status of a basement pump via MQTT to my MQTT Mosquitto Broker on my CentOS VM. Status 0 → Ok, no error. Status 1 → Not Ok, error.
I can see the status (0 or 1) with MQTT.fx or on the Linux command line.
[user1@centos ~]$ mosquitto_sub -h localhost -t MicroController/GeneralError/State 0 0
So everything is ok. On OH3 I did the following steps.
- Installed MQTT Binding
- Added a MQTT system broker connection
- Things → Click on + → MQTT Binding → MQTT Broker (Bridge)
- Things → Click on + → MQTT Binding → Generic MQTT Thing
- And now I’m stuck…
In OH2 there was the Paper UI and I could see the values coming in from my MQTT Topic right the way. How can I display the status of my MQTT topic MicroController/GeneralError/State in OH3 like it was possible in OH2 with Paper UI?
Example of OH2 with Paper UI and Temperature on my balcony.
Thank you very much for your help.
