Simple and ugly OH client for Enigma2 boxes

I thought having OH client on my sat box might be useful, so I created very simple plugin to control OH directly on TV.
It is text only, no icons at all, very simple interface using widgets available on E2 platform, but it works - at least on my OH configuration ;-).

Anybody is invited to test it, here is the repo:

Any suggestions are welcome, although I don’t want to make it a real OH client (unless somebody convinces me).

Hi, i would like to test this, how can I install it on my box?

Download ipk file from this page:, upload it on the box and install from command line:

opkg install enigma2-plugin-extentions-openhab_0.1.git1.74fe9f3-r0_all.ipk

Thank u.
I tested this add-on today.
A checkbox for would be great. So u don’t need to typ in the full string.
The plugin doesn’t find my sitemap.
When I get this warning:

When I click on “Nein” (No), the box appears again. Also when I want to exit the plugin, so it is not possible so quite the plugin.

For Address is typed in http://
EDIT: IP only is working :wink:

For what I have to enter my username and password? Inside my network it is not necessary, isn’t it?

This entering methods would make enter the address, email, password,… much easier:

Sorry for the inconvenience. I did not have time to create even simple manual, but I hope we figure this out here. BTW I updated main page on github: added installation instructions and some screenshots).

Regarding your problems with settings:

  • Host - put here either hostname or ip of OH server, but without http:// prefix or anything else, ie: and nothing more (as on the second screenshot),
  • Port - OH port on the server, I guess you should leave default 8080 here,
  • User/Password - if you don’t have security enable on OH, leave it empty,
  • Sitemap - enter name of the sitemap you would like to present,
  • Enable debug - better switch it to “yes” as likely there will be problems with the plugin and this should help us solving them. :smile:

I keep fingers crossed.

That’s true, I will try to implement this in next revision. I focused mainly on sitemap parsing and controls. This is my first E2 plugin, so it took me much time to reveal even simple things.

When you are in settings screen you can exit by choosing “red”. Please confirm if this works for you, also I will try to test it on my box again.

Red button is working.

But when I’m in a 3rd level and won’t to get back to chose another room (in my case), the plugin closes.

So now I am confused. Did you get the plugin working? Does it show your sitemap and you are able to control your devices? It seems so, since you’re talking (I guess) about navigation on your sitemap, but please confirm.
In case it is working for you, here you have list of keys on sitemap screen:

  • OK: go into sitemap element (another page), for switches and sliders toggle state (sliders switch between 0% and 100%), stop for rollershutters
  • right (cursors): switches, selections - next state, sliders - increase level by 5%, rollershutters - DOWN
  • left (cursors): switches, selections - previous state, sliders - decrease level by 5%, rollershutters - UP
  • exit, red: go level up or exit on top level page
  • yellow: settings screen

New version available. It adds OH2 compatibility and should work with both OH1 and OH2.

Enjoy :slight_smile:


If U use more as 19 items in your demo.mapsite then plugin return error.

Hi Grzegorz,
are you sure the number of items does matter? Maybe there is some specific item that causes troubles?

Anyway good to know that somebody found this plugin worth trying :slight_smile:

Yes, over 19 items plugin returns error.
I have create 19 switch and all was working OK, if make 20 or more dos not load sitemap.
Plugin is very nice to quick manage light and other items in my home.


Ok, I will try to reproduce the issue on my box.
Can you tell me what the sitemap contains? Are there only items or group/frames also?

Here my test site:
