Plum Binding needs updating to 2.2


I have been using a fantastic binding for controlling the Plum lightpads, this allows full control of the light, as well as using the lightpads a presence sensors for triggering rules.

The author @mikenemat of the plugin has been busy and not able to update it for some time, it still works with 2.2, but throws a lots of “background thread errors” as well as locks up Karaf meaning the only way to restart openhab is a full restart.

Wondering if anyone would have the time/interest to update this binding? I would be happy to test as I have 9 of these dimmers installed!


Here is one of the most common errors.

Old thread but guessing Plum is pretty much dead? I’ve read a lot about them and thought they were a really cool startup product but they have no website and there are a few products on Amazon. No videos or anything for at least a couple years. Anyone know what happened to them?
