does this work with openhab?
Siemens 5WG1 148-1AB21 GAMMA instabus IP interface
ok now for the more detailed questions for those that have the patience …
hi, I just started experimenting with Openhab. (mainly reading so far). could someone point me in the right direction after reading the scenario below I’m just looking to learn how to use Openhab to switch on and off the lights in my knx system.
This is my current understanding of what I need to do. can you elaborate any of the steps below or give me some hints and tips or point me to specific posts to read that will shave off some hours off my searching and irrelevant reading that would be really great.
install openhab on a pc- done
install knx binding - ?
use binding to communicate with my hardware (see details below)
program a touch panel display?
install openhab app on android phone to control lights.
current hardware and system setup
a working KNX system that is currently not controlled. It used to be managed by an AMX server. but that is long gone and no money to replace it professionally.
I know the KNX bus is still functional because I can send commands using an application called b+b to control the lights and blinds. also have an old computer that still controls a few of the most important lights. (Its running some program called FIAvis) and has touch screen buttons for each light.
I have a list of all the addresses for all the lights and blinds.
I have a
b+b EIB Medientechnik Gateway IP
I have read a thread on here and found that
so I don’t think this is any use to me for openhab but it needs to stay functional because I’m sure its utilized by the old computer. and its the only way to control them if that computer dies.
I also have the
Siemens 5WG1 148-1AB21 GAMMA instabus IP interface **
both of these devices are connected to the network. the EIB Medientechnik Gateway IP is definitely working because that’s how i send manual commands currently.
Most importantly I don’t want to do anything that could stop the remains of the old system working.
This is just a pet project I’m hoping to work on for the next few months.
any suggestions or help much appreciated.
