I am kind of new to openhab although I tried myself at getting openhab 1.x and 2.0 running. Unfortunately both attempts failed. Now I am on a third try and got as far as never before.
But first some word to our current setup:
Our house has a fully functional enOcean environment with eltako devices: FSB14, FSR14-4x, PTM215 db, FTR55H
The PTM215 switch control light as well as shutters
Openhab 2.4 is installed on a Windows 10 Client. At the moment it controls 4 hue lights (including colour temperature and brightness) and monitors some networks devices.
For communications with enOcean devices I have an USB 300 Gateway (COM4). It detects the PTM215 switches in discovery mode and shows me whether the light is on or off.
My issues are the following:
I cannot control the light via openhub
I do not know how to integrate my shutters.
Also I do not know how to integrate temperature controller
To solve the issues I tried to adjust the examples from the documentation. But I believe I am lacking something. Maybe it is because my exact setup is not present in the exampels, and I am not capable to adapt from the documentation (at least now).
your setup is pretty the same as mine. All your Eltako devices will work with the binding. However I would strongly recommend to use the 2.5M4 build as we have fixed a lot of bugs in the binding and support a lot of more EEP.
Most of the Eltako actuators (FSB14, FSR14, FUD14) cannot be automatically discovered, as they do not send a teachin telegram with the necessary information. Instead they have to be set in teach in mode and expect a teach in telegram send from openhab.
For your sensors it is the other way around. In this case you first have to start the discovery mode in openhab and push the teach in or learn button of your FTR55H afterwards. This will send a teach in telegram with all the necessary information to automatically create a thing in openhab. However as they do not really need to be paired, you could also just use a text file configs if you know the EnOceanIds.
I enter this thread because I have similar problems, but I think the solution is too easy to open a new thread. Sorry Christian
Similar setup, Eltako all the way…
openHAB 2.5.0.M4 Milestone Build
I followed the wiki to teach in a Eltako FSR14-2x to switch a light with Openhab. I used PCT14 in listening mode to teach in the Openhab-Enocean-Thing with the Teach-In channel. Then I dragged the switch to the actuator and changed the channel from teach-in to switch. But how do I have to set up the “ID - Zuordnungsbereich” in PCT14?
if you do the setup with PCT14, you do not need to switch the teach in channel of the openHAB things. PCT14 does the teach in for you.
You just have to look up the base id of your enocean gateway. It is a hexadecimal number which ends on 00 or 80. Each gateway supports up to 127 unique enocean ids, which can be build by adding a number between 1 and 127 (called sender id) to the base id. To make things easy I recommend to choose the same sender id in openhab which is given to the actuator by your FAM14. You find this sender id in PCT14 in the tree view of your actuators (called “Adresse” or Adr). Furthermore each FSR14 output channel owns an unique Adr.
So if the base id of your gateway is FF-AD-13-80 and you want to controll a FSR14 channel with Adr 2, you have to enter the ID FF-AD-13-82, choose function 51 “Schaltzustand von GFVS” and select the appropriate channel.
In openHAB you have to create a " Switching/Dimming Actuator" thing.
EnOcean Id => Id of your FRS14 (base id of FAM14 + Adr)
Sender Id => 2
EEP for sending => gateway command switching
EEP for receiving => PTM200
Text file config
Thing centralCommand ID "Name" @ "Ort" [ enoceanId="ID of FRS14 channel", senderIdOffset=2, sendingEEPId="A5_38_08_01", receivingEEPId="F6_00_00", broadcastMessages=true, suppressRepeating=false ]
glad that it works now. Id is calculated correctly. Forgot to mention that the senderId (Adr of the FSR14-2x) is given in decimal and BaseId in hex. So FFAD1380 (hex baseid) + 22 (decimal => 16 hex) = FFAD1396.
Hello or Hallo Daniel,
first: Thanks for your great work on this binding! I’m hanging on this point. Do you mean to set the Eltako FSB14 to LRN mode? How can I send a tech-in telegram from openHAB with the EnOCean binding?
This settings was already set corretly by me, except I don’t see some entry with PTM200 but I think that would be no problem?
I tried to get the EnOceanIds from PCT14 software, but on my side it often issue some error messages. I’ve tried a lot: For example FAM14 BA mode 1 and set actor by actor a new adress or try to set adresses via PCT14, but nothing works so that I can read all actor adresses.
I have fixed the problem with error message and duplicate device addresses after making a factory reset and clear sensor list of all actors yesterday. It was a lot of work to re-teach all the switches.
