Now that the NEEO Remote/Brain has been announced. I’m happy to share with you a binding and transport that will work with NEEO.
The binding is also available using the marketplace (the transport cannot be installed via the marketplace since transports are unavailable).
Note: you may want to look for the last ones I’ve posted to https://github.com/openhab/openhab2-addons/pull/3191 as the above are a bit old now.
The binding will discover the NEEO brains and provide you with a channel for each recipe - allowing you to start and stop NEEO recipes from openHAB.
The more powerful transport does MUCH more. The transport will allow you to expose openHAB things/channels to the NEEO brain - allowing you to control openHAB via the remote control. Example: I can expose my music system (Russound binding in openHAB) as an audio device on the NEEO and can turn it on/off with the remote power buttons, change the volume with the volume buttons, switch sources with the remote display and even display the album cover art on the remote display. VERY EXCITING.
Here is a video I made showing the openHAB setup of the transport: https://youtu.be/HTEZgQa4Fnk
Here is a video of NEEO Remote controlling openHAB items (showing changes via HABPANEL): https://youtu.be/VCGHddTLsMA
Here is a video showing executing recipes on the NEEO showing up in openHAB: https://youtu.be/eIxsGmFK57o
Note: since I made the videos - I’ve added the ability to show images from openHAB (if a channel contains an image URL).
Here is a video that shows how to expose brain devices to other brains. This allows you to control a brain centrally located in a different room from any brains in other rooms: https://youtu.be/NPIBp6tkbMg
