New to Openhab2 and would like some help or advice installing an addon on my windows machine.
Installed openhab2 on my windows 7 machine using the zip file provided by the site. It runs in a console windows called karaf.
It took a while but I eventually got it working; did a standard installation, followed the tutorials and added some items of my own in.
I decided I would like to integrate openhab with my existing zoneminder server. I find the zoneminder add-on, check that it works with openhab2 and download this file zoneminder addon
Everything I read said it was as simple as putting the file into my addon folder (for me is C:\openhab2\addons).
However no matter what i did it never seemed to work, it didn’t appear in the paper UI as an add-on to be installed (Add-ons\bindings) or as an installed add on under the configure tab.
I have tried rearranging the folder, taking the files out of the folder they were in, putting them in another folder called binding and compiling them into a .jar file. I also tried this with two other add-ons (alltime and airquality) just to check the file wasn’t broken with no success.
I would really appreciate anyone who could help tell me where I’m going wrong or at least push me in the right direction.
Thank you for your time.
