Z-Wave Beginner's setup problem? No bindings


I have setup OpenHAB2 alpha2 and HABmin2 on Raspberry PI with the serial Z-Wave module. There are a switch actor and a Fibaro Motion (Multi) sensor in my network. Using Z-Wave.me client everything looks perfect.


But I am not sure how to setup this environment using OpenHAB2 and HABmin2.
HABmin2 shows all my devices, but how to create things / items to show on the Dashboard? Do I have to create some more configuration files manually? Until now I have only the zwave.cfg under /config/services defining the serial port of the Z-Wave module an it seems to be ok.

# The Z-Wave controller port. Valid values are e.g. COM1 for Windows and /dev/ttyS0 or
# /dev/ttyUSB0 for Linux

# Z-Wave nightly heal time. This is the hour (eg 2AM) at which the automatic nightly
# network heal will be performed.

I have also added
to the VM arguments in the start.sh script.

The addons folder contains

  • org.openhab.binding.zwave-1.7.0.jar
  • org.openhab.ui.habmin_2.0.0.SNAPSHOT-0.0.15.jar

Habmin - Configuration/ZWave menu:

I stopped the Z-Way server before I started OpenHAB2 with sudo.

sudo groups pi
pi : pi adm tty dialout cdrom sudo audio video plugdev games users netdev input indiecity spi gpio

So what must I do to use Z-Wave sensors / actors with OpenHAB2 / HABmin?
Maybe a too simple question, sorry, but perhaps I am a little bit confused about OpenHAB1 / 2 / HABmin and the relevant documentation. Your help might be useful also for other beginners.

Please take a look at the binding wiki - it has information on configuring items. Basically, you need to configure the items etc by hand as the binding is an openHAB1 binding.
