Finally got openHAB 2.3.0 up and running on a RPi 2 b+. I used all the settings from MK-SmartHouse site as I know nothing about this stuff. I have read a lot but understand little. I have setup MQTT per the instructions on the above site. I used MQTTfx to verify that MQTT was communicating with my server. I have also loaded the sketch, provided from the above site, into a Wemos d1 mini to control a pushbutton setup to simulate a door switch. If I press the button the blue LED on the Wemos board comes on and I assume it is sending the information that the door is OPEN or CLOSED.
I have checked the log file to see if there were any errors generated while the program was loading. None that I saw. From the instructions from the above site, you are supposed to be able to see the door status change via the MQTTfx program. I see nothing. I have triple checked all of the files that needed to be created and they are correct, per the site.
You may be saying …Go to the above site forum and ask questions. I have posted there but no answers there for several days.
This kind of networking stuff is new to me. I have learned enough to set up my home network but getting into Linux is a new learning experience. If anyone is patient enough to help work through this I would greatly appreciate it. I think once I get one sensor setup and working, I hopefully will be able to expand my system. If there is any more information or file listings needed, let me know and I will post them.
Thank you in advance if you can provide help.
