ImperiHab setup - fails

I’m trying to setup ImperiHab, according to the instructions at, but something goes wrong.

  • I’ve put org.openhab.binding.imperihab- and org.openhab.action.imperihab_1.7.0.201502061908.jar in addons directory.
  • Changed my item from Switch Fibaro_Relay_parents_room "\u05d7\u05d3\u05e8 \u05d4\u05d5\u05e8\u05d9\u05dd" <switch> (gMyOpenHAB) { zwave="2"} to to Switch Fibaro_Relay_parents_room "\u05d7\u05d3\u05e8 \u05d4\u05d5\u05e8\u05d9\u05dd" <switch> (gMyOpenHAB) { zwave="2", imperihab="room:Zvika"}
  • If I understand correctly, the 'room:<value>' can be just a name that I made up. Right? (If not - then here is my problem…)
  • Log file has these lines:
      20:48:13.946 [DEBUG] [mperiHabGenericBindingProvider:55   ] - imperiHabGenericBindingProvider: Fibaro_Relay_parents_room binding config: room:Zvika
      20:48:13.948 [DEBUG] [mperiHabGenericBindingProvider:55   ] - imperiHabGenericBindingProvider: Fibaro_Relay_parents_room = room:Zvika
  • So far looks good
  • In my ImperiHome app at the phone, I’ve choose to add a new “ImperiHome Standard System”, with the url, but it couldn’t find it
  • I can’t even open that URL in a browser - is it normal?


What version of OpenHab?

Well, I just solved it…

By reading the instructions test file in .zip, I discovered that I should have also added some configs to the main openhab.cfg

And BTW (for the future readers benefit) - yes - if everything is working, you should see interesting things in and

This info should be in the Wiki…

Good to hear you worked it out. I think that info was on the old Google groups page.

Fyi there is now a Imperihome binding for OH2… So if when you move to OH2, your bases are covered there.

It’s great that the info is in the old Google Groups page - but if a new user see that there is a modern and nice looking Wiki page, that explains what to do - then it covers everything.

We should either update the Wiki, or at least add a notice that it doesn’t explain the whole process, and the user should look for more instructions in other place.

I have no problem to update the Wiki myself.
Is it possible?
How should I do it?

Create a github login if you don’t already have one.

Navigate to the wiki page.

Press the “Edit” button on the upper right.
