I made my first steps now in openHAB2 and I’m excited about how easy it works, etc.
Now I’d like to integrate more and more into it and so I’m looking for hardware I still can use (I do not yet have heater, light or shutter automation, yet because I’m still looking for the right standard for me).
I have a OpenWrt running router at home and perhaps there’s a possibility to also include it. For example ensuring internet is working, monitoring the internet speed, which devices are connected,… Just a small dashboard.
What a pitty I couldn’t find anything related to that except people installing openHAB2 on a OpenWrt router or someone who monitors his phone connection to the router. Did I overlook something?
@Mean I am actually thinking of using openhab2 on openwrt routers and leverage the features of both. Unfortunately I am unable to find something related except the fact that it can be done. Could you please guide me where exactly did you find something like this.
The above talks about getting information from OpenWRT into openHAB, not running openHAB on OpenWRT. You would need to have a router with at least a Gig of RAM and you will need to be able to install Java 8, preferably Zulu. Then you could just follow the manual instructions to install OH to a folder like /opt/.
But also keep in mind that some parts and configurations of OH will be very heavy writers to disk which might not work very well on many routers.
