I am complete new with OpenHAB and it is very frustrating when a (I thought) simpel setup takes so much time without any result. So, here is your opportunity to make me happy
Installing OpenHABian on my Raspberry went smoothly. I also installed the RFXCom binding. When I try to find ‘things’, the RFXcom is not detected, although it is connected to usb0. When adding manually the “RFXtrx433E USB 433.92MHz Transceiver” , OpenHAB asks me to fill in the Serial number of the RFXCOM (FTDI) device. Where can I find this number?
The RFXCom stays offline…
If I remember correct (it’s been awhile since I last did it) , you need to manually add “RFXCOM USB Transceiver” and your USB port (something like etc/TTYUSB0) needs to have dail out rights
if not yet done it, use something like “sudo usermod openhab -a -G dialout” on a CLI , openhab is the user openhab is running under (don’t know if it’s the same for OpenHABian.
Yes I did and everything works fine and reliable. The problem is that I can’t give you much detail at the moment because I’m on holiday at the moment. The key to the solution is that you must -not- select the exact devicename but a generic RFX-com.
I hope this will help. Don’t get desperated or frustrated because at the and you will love openhab and RFXcom.
