Define Mysensor (rgbw) Things in openhab2


  • Hardware Contributor

    I am currently trying to get my domoticz based network ported to openhab 2. I have installed the binding (2.2) and got openhab to connect to the serial gateway. I am struggling though to get it to use my existing nodes.

    I mainly have several RGBW nodes I want to use. I am trying to configure this via the config files, not the paper ui.

    Here is my .things file:

    Bridge mysensors:bridge-ser:gateway [ serialPort="/dev/ttyUSB0", sendDelay=200 ] {
        /** define things connected to that bridge here */
      	rgbwLight LichtFenster [nodeID=5, childId=1]
      	rgbwLight LichtSchrank [nodeID=6, childId=1]
      	rgbwLight LichtWand [nodeID=7, childId=1]
      }
    

    The ids are correct but they are shown as uninitialzed in the paper ui. Why is that?
    When restarting one node it showed up in the paperui but as

    mysensors:rgbwLight:gateway:rgbwlight_5_1
    

    Also is this the right way to controll the lights:
    .items:

    Color LichtSchrank "Licht Schrank" <slider> ["Lighting"] { channel="mysensors:rgbwLight:gateway:LichtSchrank:rgbw" }
    Color LichtFenster "Licht Fenster" <slider> ["Lighting"] { channel="mysensors:rgbwLight:gateway:rgbwlight_5_1:rgbw" }
    

    .sitemap

    sitemap lights label="Wohnzimmer" {
    
    	Frame label="Licht" {
    		Colorpicker item=LichtSchrank
    		Switch item=LichtSchrank
    	}
    
    	Frame label="Licht" {
    		Colorpicker item=LichtFenster
    		Switch item=LichtFenster
    	}
    }
    

    I can change the color (for the second one) but not switch them on/off. I also can't control the one only defined in the things file at all.
    Thanks for any help, I am still trying to learn this stuff ;)

    Ok I'll answer my question here as I found the error with some help:
    it has to be

    nodeId
    // not nodeID
