short Update to my Installation.
I installed Openhab2.4 on a new PI and moved all Bindings.
some Rules and Imports caused errors. Seems Openhab 2.4 needs less Imports than Openhab 2.1. After deleting the error causing Imports, the Rules are still working. Problem solved.
No longer needed:
still errors in Rules, I need to change “now.toDateMidnight” to “now.withTimeAtStartOfDay”. After that no more Rules errors. Problem solved.
Installed the Fritzbox “tr” Binding the first time, and waited and waited for a Thing to Popup. Nothing. After adding some Items and trying it, I learned that it´s working. Maybe I missed it, but it´s not good documented. Problem solved.
I tried some “Weather” services. Well, a lot Weather Services seems to cancel free “API” calls. Yahoo Weather, Meteoblue, WeatherUnderground - all not working. The one I am using is Openweather, the only one I found with a free API. Maybe it´s time to delete the other Bindings?! Lost a lot of Time with that. I wanted Meteoblue, they have Astro Weather Informations. But this looks very expensive bying the API.
the “new” PI where I installed Openhab 2.4 was a gift. After everything was running and some Habpanel Diagrams later, I realized that it is a “PI Model B+ V1.2” with 512MB RAM (Year 2014). Startup takes around 30 min.! CPU is running above 55% all the time. Klicking something in the Habpanel causes CPU to rise and running with 100% for 1 min. Not good…
- I tried to bring Openhab 2.4 on a better PI (PI 3 Model B V1.2 Year 2016)
- made an Image with “Win32Disk Imager” from the “new” Openhab 2.4 and burned it on a second SD. I just didn´t want to insert the original SD in the other PI
Tataa, it booted without an error 100x times faster than the old one and now Openhab 2.4 is running smooth and fast.
I am happy now. The Habpanel is really nice and the new Openhab2.4 looks stable to me. Paper UI shows more and better Informations on discovered Things, Channel Names usw.
There is only one thing. Cloud connector. To get it running I still need to build a Sitemap and create a lot of Items for the “classic or basic UI”? Double work (Habpanel and Sitemap). Yes, I could open up my Habpanel to the Internet, but this means a direct external access to my network. I don´t want that.
Anyway, I created a sitemap and Items and also this is running like expected.
Thanks! It was fun updating the system.
