[SOLVED] OH2 + Meteostick

Hi everybody

I’m running a Davis Vantage Pro2 as Weatherstation, which is connected through USB to the system. On OH1 I was able to get all the needed values through the davis binding with "


" defined in the openhab.cfg

Now in OH2 I tried the extension “meteostick” and configured the two things “Meteostick USB Receiver” and “Davis Vantuage ISS”. When I startup OH2 I get the following logs:

2017-05-31 21:36:11.626 [DEBUG] [org.openhab.binding.meteostick      ] - BundleEvent STARTING - org.openhab.binding.meteostick

but when I check the status

openhab> smarthome:things

astro:moon:home (Type=Thing, Status=ONLINE, Label=Astro moon data, Bridge=null)

meteostick:meteostick_davis_iss:a3294ed5 (Type=Thing, Status=OFFLINE, Label=Davis Vantage Vue ISS, Bridge=meteostick:meteostick_bridge:3753e8f5)

both are offline. Can anyone help on this topic?

I configured also the following:
in the file /etc/default/openhab2 (running Openhab on Ubuntu), without success.

Thanks in advance

Hello everybody,

Did anybody got a Davis Vantage Pro2 running with Openhab2?


I solved the problem. Meteostick does not support the Davis-USB dongle. To read the data from the davis weather-station, the davis1 binding is needed.
