I’m a newbie to openHAB and after testing around between openHAB and openHAB 2 for some hours, I decided to start with OH2. Meanwhile I managed to get my Sonos running under BasicUI and also to integrate my MAX!Cube with some heater thermostates. So far, so good.
After that I tried to get a Velleman K8055 running with OH2, and my first exercise was to set a digital output to ON. Even after a lot of hours of googeling and fiddling around: no luck until now! I’m not sure, whether this is possible at all, because the K8055-binding ist not in the list of compatible bindings for OH2.
So my question is: Q1: Has anybody sucessfully integrated the Velleman K8055 (or its successor VM110N) under openHAB 2?
And a second question concerns finding an alternative way, in case that the old OH1 binding is not compatible with OH2. I got the Linux K8055 library running on the same RasPi as the openHAB runtime. Thus, I can control the K8055 by commandline.
Q2: Is there any OH2 binding, that allows me easily to make use of this commandline interface?
And to further improve the idea with the commandline access:
Q3: How can I modify the solution from Q2, if I want remote-access, that means the K8055 and its Linux library are running on a system different from the one with my OH2 runtime?
A lot of questions, I know. But I’m rather sure, that a solution to this problem would be very interesting for a lot of other users too.
