Install a 2.5 addon on a 2.4 OpenHab


My setup is the following:
OpenHab 2.4 installed on a Synology Disk Station with the provided spk on github.
I Installed the deconz binding via the Paper UI.

What I’m trying to achieve:
I want to add as things the humidity and open/close sensors from the deconz binding.

My problem:
The above mentioned sensors are not supported by the 2.4 deconz binding but they have been added in the mean time for the 2.5 milestone release. The 2.5 milestone release doesn’t have an spk and therefore i cannot update my openhab to it.

Is there a way that i can install the 2.5 milestone binding on a 2.4 OpenHab. If yes, how can i achieve that.

Thanks a lot in advance for your support.

you could try downloading and dropping the binding jar into the addons folder but very likely it won’t work as the binding will expect functionalities from the core that just aren’t there.
The way better solution is to migrate away from your Synology to a RPi or similar and run stock 2.5M2 there.

Hi Markus,

Thank you very much for your help. I will go the way of raspberry pi.
