Shelly 2 with original Firmware and openhab 2.4 MQTT

  • Platform information:
    • Hardware: Selly2
    • openHAB version: 2.4

Hi there,

could someone help me, as I am really confused. First I had several tries and mismatched MQTT1 and the new from openhab2.4.

I have several shelly 2 in my flat since some weeks but am not able to configure them properly.

The work without problems directly through inserts into my mosquitto but are not proper configured inside openhab.

I have now created a now openhab instance just for testing but am not able to clearly understand everything.

I think that i have configured the broker proper as in Paper UI several devices are in the inbox which follow the homie standard.

My Shelly 2 is configured as a roller shutter for my blinds.

Bridge mqtt:broker:PinkyMqtt [ host="", secure=false ]
	Thing topic RolloWZ {
        Type switch : blind "Wohnzimmer Rolladen" [ stateTopic="shellies/shellyswitch-55BD70/roller/0",

    Thing topic Temperatur_AM {
         Type number : temp "WZ Temperatur" [ stateTopic="zigbee2mqtt/Temperatur_WZ", commandTopic="zigbee2mqtt/Temperatur_WZ/temperature" ]
         Type number : humi "WZ Luftfeuchtigkeit" [ stateTopic="zigbee2mqtt/Temperatur_WZ", commandTopic="zigbee2mqtt/Temperatur_WZ/humidity" ]


2019-02-25 19:29:52.510 [hingStatusInfoChangedEvent] - ‘mqtt:topic:PinkyMqtt:RolloWZ’ changed from INITIALIZING to ONLINE

The logfile gives ok for initialization, but no events are logged at all.

Is there anybody here who is using it already to open/close the blinds and could share his broker/things/items configuration with me?


MQTT implementation for Rollershutter is not correct actually. You shoud add MQTT actions with rules or use node-red.

Hi furax, thanks for this information, did not know that.

Still I would be very happy, if someone could help me adding these shelly2 into openhab.

I am already using rules inside node-red, but I would like to use the openhab nodes there, as I am doing that for all other items as well.
