Bought one of the new IKEA Trådfri outlets today to test. The few minutes I have had it, it seems to work fine except that it is not supported by openHAB. Is there any way I can help so that the outlets will be added to the Trådfri binding or is that work already on its way?
Unfortunately I did not get ahold of the wall switch, they where all sold out.
Made me happy for a while, unfortunately karaf complains about dependencies: Unresolved requirement: Import-Package: org.eclipse.californium.core, tried to install the californium.core files I could locate but only got other errors instead. Any ideas?
and in paperUI i get a new ON/OFF switch. Unfortunately the switch has no channels when I open up the thing. All it says is that it is online. I had som trouble with the installation so not sure if that might have caused it. All other Trådfri things works as before.
Have to learn a bit more on how to enable logs for bindings, have’t really had the time since I migrated from 1.x
However, i got the following in the openhab.log:
2018-09-27 11:44:11.464 [INFO ] [g.discovery.internal.PersistentInbox] - Added new thing 'tradfri:0010:gwa0cc2bf86a87:65591' to inbox.
2018-09-27 11:44:39.481 [WARN ] [ore.internal.thing.ThingTypeResource] - Cannot find channel type: system:power
2018-09-27 11:44:47.518 [WARN ] [re.thing.internal.ThingFactoryHelper] - Could not create channel 'power' for thing type 'tradfri:0010:gwa0cc2bf86a87:65591', because channel type 'system:power' could not be found.```
I see. That is the culprit. The implementation uses one if the the new system default channel types which are not available in OH2.3. I am afraid there is no chance to get it running for you without upgrading your system to at least OH2.4 milestone 3. Sorry for the circumstances.
Nothing to be sorry about it is as it is and I am really grateful for the fast responses and all the help you have given me with this. Now I know I have to wait until I go up to 2.4, unfortunately that might take a while since I am also depending on the Tellstick binding but that is another matter.
There is a workaround for those who are on OH 2.3.0 and currently don’t want to upgrade to OH 2.4.0 M4-1.
I got the outlets working by manually adding a thing type 0100 (Dimmable Light) instead of the upcoming thing type 0010, which will come with OH 2.4.0 M4-1.
