Revenz, the creator of the ImperiHAB binding stopped maintaining his wonderful binding.
Is there anyone who is interested to work on this to make it support the other Item types? I think most of the work is already done, but I have not enough Java knowledge (currently learning) to do this on my own.
If anyone would fork, I would totally help out if I get some instructions of yours and get them into your fork for review.
Really hope to see this continue as I truly do love it for a front end display.
I would like to possible ask for a request in future releases…
Would it be possible to control Philip Hue bulbs better? Currently, within OpenHab, I can both turn on/off a phillips bulb AND dim the light.
But with ImperiHab, I can not seem dim a Philips Hug lightbulbs via Imperihab. However, it I add a Philips System to ImperiHome I can dim those lights.
But using Imperihab is the preferred method because with OpenHab and the Philips Hue binding you actually gain remote access from outside your home. Adding the Philipe Hue as a system to ImperiHome does not give remote access to the lights.
Hope that makes some sense. If not I can try and explain it better.
I think this is mostly a question of implementation. Generally, if you add
Dimmer Items, you should be able to dim and switch the lights. Neither the
ImperiHAB app, nor the OpenHAB anrdoid app actually know that this is a hue
I fully agree to you, that the bulbs should be managed through openhab for
remote url access.
Do you see the dimming controls within the imperihome app or are they
displayed as normal lights?
If they are normal light widgets, the Dimmer Item may not yet be
implemented in ImperiHAB. But I really think it is, cannot look into the
code right now.
Now, In OpenHab, and from a remote location I can turn on the lamp and dim the bulb.
Now with ImperiHome:
If the bulb is configured under ImperiHab. I can turn the light ON but can not dim it. I can also control that bulb remotely.
And if the Bulb is configured under the Philips system in ImperiHome. I can both turn it on and Dim it. But only from within my home wifi. I can’t seem to control it remotely.
So my current preference is to configure any Hue bulb in ImperiHome under the ImperiHab Addon System to have remote control of it. But you can only turn the Hue bulbt on and off and not dim it (either on local wifi or remote)
nah, I just got busy with other projects, and this thing was just working for me and didnt need any work
I have openhab 2 and habmin2 running on a pi, just having an issue getting the zwave binding working, once I have that working and a system actually doing stuff, Ill look into update the addon to work with openhab2.
I’ve no issues on 1.8 withImperihab, but im keen to begin moving to OH2…and at least for me I cannot get Imperihab to work there.
I kinda decided not to invest much time on OH1 and go straight to OH2 from Vera, and not having Imperihab is really the only blocker I have at this time.
I’m more than happy to send any logs or perform any tests you require.
I couldn’t get anything working on OH2, well no zwave stuff, which meant it was pretty much useless to me. Ill setup the dev environment and see if theres any tweaks/bugs for OH1, but until I can actually get OH2 running, I won’t be updating the plugin (cos I cant get it to work :))
