Onewire binding versus Onewire GPIO binding recommendation


I’m adding temperature sensors to my setup. They are DS18B20 sensors on a Raspberry Pi 3. I noticed two bindings which seem to support this: Onewire Binding and Onewire GPIO Binding. Any recommendations for these or an addition alternative?

Checking with the experts!



  • Platform information:
    • Hardware: Pi3
    • OS: Buster
    • Java Runtime Environment: which java platform is used and what version
    • openHAB version: 3.1.0

Depends on what you want to do. If you want a lot of different sensors, go for the Onewire binding, it connects to an installed owfs which supports a wide range of bushmasters and sensors. If you have only few temperature sensors, the GPIO might do as well.
