Risco local binding [4.1.0;5.0.0)


This binding is for the Risco alarm panels.
The development/test has been performed on a LightSysPlus panel but Agility, LightSys and ProSysPlus panels should be working too.

The communication to the panel is only local via IP.


Version 0.1

  • Initial release
  • Discovery, status updates, Zone bypass are working.

Version 0.2

  • Internal message handling improvement
  • Preliminary support for arming and disarming

Version 0.3




hey just tried your binding but i dont get anything in the ui but the binding is there in list

281 │ Active │  80 │     │ openHAB Add-ons :: Bundles :: risco Binding

any chance for some documentations about it ? or do it need openhab 4.1 ?

Hi @stamate_viorel,

first you have to create the “Risco Bridge” manually.
Settings → Things. Press on the + (Plus) Sign. Select the risco binding. Click on “Risco Bridge” in the “Add Manually” list.
There you are presented with the config parameters you have to enter.

  • IP address of the panel
  • The port (default: 1000)
  • The panel id (default: 1)
  • The communication password (default: 5678)
  • The communication encoding (default: utf-8)
  • The initial connection delay (default: 0)

Except the first setting (IP address) the rest of the settings have the default values pre-specified.

Hey thanks for the reply. Well I don’t know for the life of me why but there is no binding to select in the ui. I even clean the cache everything but your binding doesn’t show up. I think I have some knowledge about openhab but I do not find any sign of your binding except the karaf console.
But I am glad someone is actually working on this.

You need for sure openhab 4. I only tested with 4.1 :slight_smile:
That’s the reason the marketplace binding is in alpha state and not yet published…
