[gardena] Partner Things can't be connected through binding --> Appear offline

Dear Everybody,

My Environment

Platform information:
Hardware: Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+
OS: OpenHABian (2.3.0-1)
openHAB version: 2.3.0-1


Gardena Smart Home Binding

After setting up image of openhabian and installation of Gardena Smart Home binding I tried to create the things.

In Gardena smart system you can configure things from partners Netatmo Presence & Husqvarna Automower. These were successfuly connected and are working with Smart Gardena.
If I install the Gardena Smart Home Binding the things to be configured appear in the inbox after first creating the thing “Gardena Smart Home Account”. Also the Husqvarna Automower & Netatmo Presence things are appearing in the inbox. After successfully creating the things the thing “Gardena Smart Home Account” goes offline as well as the thing “Automower”. The error that appears in the log is as follows:

2018-07-14 07:51:10.268 [ERROR] [ardena.handler.GardenaAccountHandler] - There is something wrong with your thing ‘gardena:mower:bdf199b9:984ff564-7883-1234-1234-123456789012’, please check or recreate it: Property ‘sgtin’ not found in ability ‘device_info’

So the Husqvarna is configured as ‘gardena:mower’ and it seems that it expects some other parameters.

If I add a item the current state e.g. battery level is shown in the control view if the paperUI.
But it does not show the most updated values because it could be that the thing is offline…

Is there any workaround or any other possibility to connect?

Thanks ahead!

did you figure this out?

Actually the Gardena Binding has to be updated in order to consider also Husqvarna Automower.
There are also other ways to do it through IFTTT integration or through HTTP requests by using another raspberryPI running with the following content:

My plan is to create a new Automower binding in order to integrate directly…plan to do that for March.

Do you have any other solution or are you working on any binding for that?

I’m not sure who you are asking the question to.
I don’t own a robotmowner at this moment. My parents have a husqvarna and are very happy about it, so if I buy one, my prefered choice is a husqvarna.
Of course openhab support would be a great plus.

Have you started with the binding?


sorry for my late reply…

nope! next week :slight_smile:
Issue here is the API is not published by Husqvarna…will try with existing known possibilities.

But you can call it through IFTTT hocks which are available from Husqvarna

I would be very glad with a husqvarna binding.
But isnt this the api https://developer.1689.cloud/ ??
I dont now how to make the binding but i will be glad to test it i own a 315X.
