Hi there. I’m new to OpenHAB but familiar with writing software and arduino/rPi tinkering.
In planning out my OpenHAB setup, I’m trying to determine how I can find compatible hardware. For sensors, I think I’ll just be building ESP8266 arduino nodes that send data via MQQT.
My next agenda item is power sockets. Is there a general method by which I can determine what WiFi sockets are compatible and which aren’t? I need something that’s UL listed and don’t want to pay an arm and a leg.
A quick search on Amazon for “Wifi” outlet yields an enormous number of options, many stating compatibility with Alexa/Google. I’m not sure if that’s any indication of OH compatibility or not.
Long story short… is there a list of comfirmed OpenHAB compatible hardware? Also, what’s the general procedure for determining if a hardware widget might be compatible with OpenHAB without necessarily buying one and taking it apart.
Thanks in advance!
