Java Runtime Environment: which java platform is used and what version
Issue of the topic: please be detailed explaining your issue
Trying to add my first devices
I have just set up OpenHab and am having issues getting it to control my light bulbs. These are about as generic as could be - controlled by the Smart Life app on my phone. I thought these things are so common that it would be an “out of the box” thing but it does not look like it is.
I have found a lint giving details on adding the MQQT broker followed by adding tuya-mqtt… and that’s where it all falls apart. I have found instruction to add it in a unix system but nothing for windows.
If anyone could point me in the right direction I would be so grateful.
Hi Everso, welcome to the OpenHAB community and great first post!!!
I’m guessing your first step is to get a mqtt broker running and working with your OpenHAB set up. Here is link to download page
A lot of us find a mqtt client such as mqttfx is helpful for making sure your broker is functioning http://www.mqttfx.org/
Then work on the tuya-mqtt which I know nothing about but ask in the forum when you get stuck and folks will help
Mqtt isn’t the simplest thing to get working and understand but you’ll figure it out
Not really sure if it’s on-line or not. I don’t think it is.
That thread is one of the many I found but none of them help with windows. They step after the MQQT installed I apparently need to install the tuya bit … ant like I said - it’s all unix and I really don’t fancy going that way.
