Re: ESP8266...openhab...mosquitto...MQTT...nightmare

I did several tests and to get some practice I did everything from the beginning. I added MQTT state topic and MAP files. APP activates switches and shows icon and switch changing color/state and ON/OFF indication. WEB gui changes switch position accordingly. Only weird thing is that the rel 1 (rela...

Re: ESP8266...openhab...mosquitto...MQTT...nightmare

1. Switch the relay_x-item to 'veto an auto update' 2. Create a file 'relay0.map' (you need a seperate for each relay-command) in the 'transform' subfolder of your OH-installation. Maybe with linux linefeeds !? with the following content: OFF=Relay,0,0 ON=Relay,0,1 0=OFF 1=ON 3. Change the relay_x-...

Re: ESP8266...openhab...mosquitto...MQTT...nightmare

Very nice option. After initial frustration I feel quite enthusiast about OH. I am trying to understand what would be best hardware setup for my project IoT. It is a small project with 4/5 switches and some sensors. I realized thet it is a MUST to have a pc always running OH so I am looking at raspb...

Re: ESP8266...openhab...mosquitto...MQTT...nightmare

Micha, I can't follow you right now. I have to understand what you mean on the practical side. If I am correct you want to monitor the actual state of the relays. Am I correct? So far I ma very satisfied the system is working and I get a grip on the procedure and how the system works. I believe open...

Correction: The examples are OK, but config-files are not created, when use the OH-web-interface to create things and so on.

Re: ESP8266...openhab...mosquitto...MQTT...nightmare

About MQTT binding question. I am using MQTT binding. You haven't answered the MQTT-binding-version question yet. Look under 'Add-ons/Binding/MQTT-Binding...' Which version is installed on your OH ?

Re: ESP8266...openhab...mosquitto...MQTT...nightmare

Maybe OpenHAB-Log or PaperUI (with binding V2.x) Which MQTT-binding do you use in OpenHAB, 2.x or 1.x ? They use a different configuration. (so far my experience is based on V1.x) With 2.x the following example/test could help: rule "MQTT_TEST" when Time cron "0 */1 * ? * *" //every 1 Minute then v...

Re: ESP8266...openhab...mosquitto...MQTT...nightmare

Hey TD-er, I do not have Mosquitto installed as my understanding is that you can stay WITHOUT it if using embedded openhab broker. The software (openhab) and the devices are in the same net. Openhab has port 1883. Myabe this is a silly question...is the openhab IP the same as the broker? BTW I fixed...

Thanks for the explanation.
So far I downloaded and installed Mosquitto. I am trying now to understand how to work with them.
I searched some guide over the web but no success.
I need to understand the basic principle of functioning to make it work...I am stopped at this point.
