openHAB install on Microsoft Windows Demo

Hi All,

My latest video just dropped! I have installed openHAB on everything else before, but many people have been asking me to do a demo setup on Microsoft Windows! If your interested, starting with a simple Java install to openHAB setup, installing the service and connecting via SSH to the console! Let me know what you think, and what you would like to see next!

Great stuff man!

I like the step by step explanation that you give. It makes it so much easier to deploy openHAB on Windows :+1:


Thanks! Glad you like!

What do you think I should do next?

I think that the following topic will be “hot/popular” during the upcoming holiday period (when people will have more free time to play with OH and buy more Voice gadgets to control their devices):

Remote Control (with notifications in the mobile App) + Cloud Integrations (with focus on Voice control)

Basically, cover: openHAB Cloud Connector which will allow remote control and is the “gateway” (as a pre-requisite) to many other Cloud integrations (IFTTT, Google Home/Assistant, Alexa, etc, etc = select one integration and show-case it).

I don’t remember if you have covered this topic in one of your existing videos.
The documentation on these 2 topics is not the greatest and people can get lost.
Combining both topics in 1 video maybe hard, so you could do a series here :slight_smile:

Great videos. Thanks for posting!

I’ve a couple of ideas.

How to setup and use Audio Sinks and the say and play Actions would be useful to many I think.

I’m starting to document the Next Gen Rules Engine. At some point once the docs mature a bit I think a video tutorial will be exceptionally useful.
