I'll be finishing my flat soon and I'm looking for some hardware recommendation and confirmation that current choices are ok:
Needs: light steering, automatic shutters, A/C controling, security
On/off switches - Insteon On/Off Micro Module (?)
LED lightning - Mi-Light controllers (?)
Movement detector - Insteon (?)
Smoke detector - (?) maybe Insteon
Shutters - (?)
A/C - (? and the question is - would it work with standard A/C unit controled from the remote pilot)
I'm planning to automate the lights and rolling shutters on an extension of my existing flat. The cabling will be done in the traditional way, but I'm planning to install push buttons as switches.
The plan was to install a central unit for managing the inputs (from the switches) and outputs (to lights and shutters). The lights and shutters should be attached relays connected to this central unit.This unit should be autonomous and should then be connected to a openhab instance running on …
Parallel to the development system that I am currently using, I want to maintain another known stable openhab release, that can be used by non technical people at any time. My main needs for the stable system are to support a set of zwave devices including a door lock, so preferably ot should support secure zwave.
So far I only have an unstable release (latest openhab2 snapshot). It is used for development and testing of new features, and resolving known problems, and as such, the system is mo…
I recently found out about openHAB and would love to set it up and control my house with it. My problem is that the system is compatible to so many different companies' hardware and I am not sure what to use. Since such a variety is supported, I was hoping somebody could help me find a solution.
This is what I would like to do: - control 4 different radiators - thermometers for 3 different rooms (to set the radiators' temperature accordingly) - smoke detectors for 7 different rooms - op…
Every protocol/technology is different. For example, the Astro, Weather, MQTT, and HTTP bindings just need networking. Zwave requires a USB dongle. GPIO obviously requires jumper wires connected to the GPIO pins on your computer (presumably a board computer like Raspberry Pi or BeagleBone or the like). So if you have specific questions about a specific technology you are looking at I'm sure there will be a wealth of advice you can illicit from these forums. Similarly the wiki page for that t…
I Would like to ask about any recommendation what hardware I should choose to my new system. I will do general refurbishment of my house and I'm not sure what will be the best for lights , heating , floor heating etc. I'm wondering what I should use for hub ? Samsung smartthings or Raspberry Pi with RFLink and Openhub or something similar ? What oil boiler will be the best option for control over smart hub ?
I am going to install rollershutters and would like to hear your recommendations regarding the control system. Here in Germany Somfy is pretty common, but I don't know if its easy to integrate.
What do I want to achieve: 1. Control by local switch (or remote). 2. Control by openhab (sun elevation, temperature, time, ...) 3. I use some zwave devices (Fibaro) and would like to use the Fibaro Rollershutter controller FGR... to control the rollershutters as well
My concern: If I have a So…
I decided to flash and recommend the (specialized) firmware by arendst but I also saw that Homie provides an example for the Sonoff. I'm using Homie for another application. Do you see any upsides in preferring it here? Regarding the power measurement: Exactly. I'm pretty excited about them. I've ordered two of them and already contacted arendst to hopefully help to integrate it in his firmware.
I would venture to say the majority of users run on a Pi. They can be perfectly stable, especially if you go through steps like running off of an external drive. This will probably be the cheapest route. Next cheapest would probably be finding a used machine somewhere. It doesn't have to be powerful or have much space. I myself run on an old laptop with a busted screen. Compatibility with hardware isn't really a concern. I know of none that only work when OH is running on one type of OS or a…
No list though, but maybe you could start one?
