Emerson Sensi Thermostat

(Robert Bouchard) #22

Yes !
I would like to have this working here ! :slight_smile:
But, I’m the best Rookie to test the foolproof of your work ! lol

Did you get the sensi thermostat working with openhab just over wifi, without any other device ? Hub or ?

Thank you ! :slight_smile:

Yes. I have a jar built that uses the wink binding. No other wink hardware is required, but you do have to setup a wink software bridge which is pretty easy to do thru paper UI.

Also, you have to setup your device with wink’s app.

I’ll look how others share unreleased jar files so you can try it out if you are interested. I have a pull request pending.

@Robert_Bouchard, You can download the wink jar from here: https://github.com/woopelderly/wink-thermostat-jar.git

Follow the readme from here: https://github.com/woopelderly/openhab2-addons/tree/ring_doorbell/addons/binding/org.openhab.binding.wink

For all the items to refresh properly on my sitemap in the basic ui, I added all of my thermostat items to my persistence file as well.

Let me know if you have any questions or issues!

One downside with wink is that when you adjust the temperature set point, it turns scheduling off. I have reached out to sensi and to wink to see if they will expose the temporary temperature setting so scheduling does not get shut off when making changes with the wink binding. It is a feature request on wink’s side, so we will see if it ever gets implemented.

Hum, Yeah I’m lost ! :confused:
Where I can find how to or where to put files… i’ve looked in Eclipse SmartHome binding tutorial, but i’m not there ! :confounded:

I’ve created and account at Wink, got Client ID and Secret…
I’ve put the Wink binding folder in my \OPENHABIANPI\openHAB-share/org.openhab2-addons/ folder.

Added the wink.cfg in \OPENHABIANPI\openHAB-conf\services\ with Wink’s clien ID and secret inside.
(Even there, I’m not shure I’ve done it right, they asked for a web site I used my Github page, is it good ? they finaly provide clienID and secret, but…)

But the jar ? where it goes ? Edit: ok it’s an archive… :roll_eyes: …working on it…

I can’t see in the PaperUI the Wink binding install option.

Thank you very mutch ! :slight_smile:

I used the following service so I did not have to create my own secret and ID with wink.


Then, in my wink.cfg file, i have:


Did you try to use the herokuapp link? It is a little confusing, but here is the process:

  1. Navigate to the auth service website and use your github credentials to login

  2. Then create a password for the service.

  3. Then, you will be presented with a screen that asks you to change your password, you do not need to do this. Go back to the original link for the auth service.

  4. Then, near the bottom, click the “Connect to Wink”. You will be directed to Wink’s login page. Use your wink credentials to login.

  5. Finally, go back to the original link for the auth service and your token will be available near the bottom. This is the token you put in your wink.cfg for the auth_service_token parameter.

The jar should go into your addons folder.

After doing this, you should be able to add items through the PaperUI. I don’t think I had to ‘install’ the binding. Don’t forget to manually add the WinkHub2 Thing with the PaperUI before trying to add your thermostat.

Let me know how it goes, and thank you for trying it out!
