I’m brand new to OpenHab, so bare with me.
I’ve got the OpenHab server up and running and now I want to add some sensors, I already have four 1-wire temperature probes hooked up to the PI and I can access them through /sys/bus/w1/devices.
The information I’ve found so far indicates that owfs-server is needed to get the readings into OpenHab. Here’s the problem owfs doesn’t communicate with the on board 1-wire bus as far as I can tell.
Is there a software solution to this? I’d hate to have to add more hardware to accomplish this.
Sorry to revive an old post, but I see that you did not get a reply.
It’s been a full year, so hopefully you figured out a solution that works for you, but I just posted a tutorial that addresses this issue:
This tutorial explains how to connect multiple Maxim DS18b20 1-wire temperature sensors to a GPIO pin on a Raspberry Pi, and pull those temperature readings into OpenHAB.
This is a re-write of my previous post on this issue, which includes problems I ran into, and how I fixed them:
Exec Binding script for 1wire temps on OpenHABianPi GPIO
I have also posted a longer version on my blog, which is a bit more…“bloggy”…:
Step 1: Install and configure openHABianPi
For this tutorial, I used the op…
Because you already have the sensors reporting, you would only need the script and the Exec Binding to get this working.
