Yes, I’m a newbie… (Barry) an IT tech for 30 years starting with PDP-11’s then AS/400’s but now mostly Wintel systems and networks.
That said, I’ve never been a unix guy…
My goal. To control sonoff switches using openhab2 using the Paper UI for configuration wherever possible.
So I got me a Pi 3 and gave it a go…
So far I have got openhabian with openhab 2.4 loaded and running.
I have mosquitto loaded and running and what I understand to be the very new 2.4.x MQTT binding loaded.
I can connect to mosquitto using MQFX on a PC.
I have two sonoff switches which I have flashed with Tasmota. I have these connected to wifi and communicating with the mosquitto MQTT on the Pi.
I now need to understand how to bring these elements together.
I thought by loading all the default choices… (Pi,openhabian,mosqitto,MQTT2.4.x) I would be taking the easy vanilla route… however, clearly most information out there is based on old 1.x bindings and configuration files.
I’d like to find a step by step guide of information based around the 2.4 MQTT binding and ideally config thru Paper UI, hopefully relationg to how to tie to and control sonoffs.
Can you point me at anything that will help ?
