Examples of Dishwasher control with Home Connect API?

  • Platform information:
    • Hardware: Orangepi 3 LTS
    • OS: Armbian
    • Java Runtime Environment: OpenJDK
    • openHAB version: 3.4.1
  • Issue of the topic: Keen to know how people control their dishwashers with OpenHAB

I have a Siemens dishwasher that is Home Connect enabled. I got the OpenHAB Home Connect thing up and running and have a bunch of controls for the dishwasher available. How are you using OpenHAB with a dishwasher?
I also have the earth source heat pump control developed by @masipila in use. This means OpenHAB knows when electricity is cheap during the day. In principle I could load the dishwasher and leave it to OpenHAB to start it when it is cheapest to use it?

Any other uses?

I currently show the dishwasher in my kitchen flowplan like so

and it changes its image depending whether it is open / closed / or running:

and when I click on it, it allows me to view its status and control it (sorry, German :wink: )

I also show the remaining time when it is running.
Currently I have no rule controlling it.
