Serial Control of device?

I’m just getting started with openhab and things are going ok – so far so good.

I have a xantech mrc88 that’s connected to an globalcache ip2sl (

Where do I get started on creating a binding(?) to the xantech? Do I look at the globalcache code and go through that? Do I start a new “xantech” binding? Do I use TCP to write commands through the ip2sl’s serial port and read from the serial port?


Start looking at using bindings that already exist. there is a global cache binding, a serial binding, and a TCP binding which you should be able to use without writing your own binding. However, if none of these will work, see How to Implement a Binding to create a new one.
