# Limitations

  • Discovery of Things
  • Discovery of Bridge

# Discovery

Configuration via configuration files or UI (see below).

# Bridge Configuration

You need to provide the IP address and the system password of your Bosch Smart Home Controller. The IP address of the controller is visible in the Bosch Smart Home Mobile App (More -> System -> Smart Home Controller) or in your network router UI. The system password is set by you during your initial registration steps in the Bosch Smart Home App.

A keystore file with a self-signed certificate is created automatically. This certificate is used for pairing between the Bridge and the Bosch Smart Home Controller.

Press and hold the Bosch Smart Home Controller Bridge button until the LED starts blinking after you save your settings for pairing.

# Getting the device IDs

Bosch IDs for found devices are displayed in the openHAB log on bootup (OPENHAB_FOLDER/userdata/logs/openhab.log)

The log can also be called using the following command.

tail -f /var/log/openhab/openhab.log /var/log/openhab/events.log

Alternatively, the log can be viewed using the OpenHab Log Viewer (frontail) via http://openhab:9001 (opens new window).
