openhab - best approach



  • hi all,

    i try to use openhab with my neuron 203.

    so far there seems to be only the possibility to use the openhab modbus binding. and if i read correctly one would get not the full functionality of the neuron ...

    questions:

    • did someone do the modbus binding ? did it work ?
    • with modbus, what features are useable, which are missing ?
    • is there another possibility ? a binding for evok f.e. ?
    • if not - has somebody sample code that would help developing such a evok binding ? preferable in java/groovy ...

    tia,tja...

    Hi @tja!

    We are now in the process of developing our own binding for Neuron, though it may take some time before it is ready.

    If you cannot wait any longer you have a couple of options (besides Modbus) - writing a SYSFS binding (look at the GPIO binding for inspiration), basing the binding on WebSocket (look at Loxone for inspiration) or using MQTT (can be used out of the box, but requires using a third-party MQTT-EVOK plugin, which you can find somewhere on the EVOK forum).

    For the Modbus binding I would recommend looking at the Wago binding implementation, which is based on Modbus and should provide a good starting point for development.
