I think Enocean is a very interesting standard, and I plan to buy some sonsors and actuators. Right now, I have two devices:
After reading here in the forums I see that the Enocean binding is not that well-kept, supporting only a very small group of devices. There are loud voices requesting a new binding, but that would not be ready in the near future.
So the questions are,
- how do you integrate your Enocean devices in your homes?
- what do you recommend for connecting Enocean devices to OpenHAB2?
I have seen a solution where the Enocean handling is done by Homegear which is connected to OH by MQTT, but hey that’s another system needed to kept maintained.
Thanks for your recommendations
Please check this discussion. It might not be satisfying, but I am sure it gets a glimpse on why things are happening this way!
thanks for the link. There are legal implications, so the new openhab2 binding should be based on another library. I have set a bounty on that improvement and am currently investigating if I am able to contribute to that issue (this osgi looks complicated).
The question is more what the current “state-of-the art” connection between Enocean devices and OpenHAB2 looks like.
If you don’t like MQTT, you may want to look at the Homegear/HomeMatic binding solution here. You’re right, you have to maintain another system. However, for me it’s a suitable workaround as long as no native EnOcean binding is available. Setting up Homegear is also not that complicated.
Hi, just wanted to say that I have now tested homegear with the HomeMatic binding, and it works very well. Thanks for your input
