MyHOMEServer1 Gateway F454 Gateway Zigbee USB Gateway

# Supported Things

In order for this binding to work, a BTicino/Legrand OpenWebNet gateway is needed in your home system to talk to devices.

These gateways have been tested with the binding:

Some of these modules are not on the BTicino catalogue anymore.

NOTE The new BTicino Living Now® and Livinglight Smart® wireless systems are not supported by this binding as they do not use the OpenWebNet protocol.

The following Things and OpenWebNet WHOs are supported:

# Discovery

Gateway and Things discovery is supported by this binding.

# BUS/SCS Discovery

  • BUS Gateway automatic discovery will work only for newer gateways supporting UPnP: F454, MyHOMEServer1, MH201, MH202, MH200N, MyHOME_Screen 10. For other gateways you can add them manually, see Thing Configuration below.
  • After gateway is discovered and added a connection with default password (12345) is tested first: if it does not work the gateway will go offline and an error status will be set. A correct password must then be set in the gateway Thing configuration otherwise the gateway will not become online.
  • Once the gateway is online, a second Inbox Scan will discover BUS devices
  • BUS/SCS Dimmers must be ON and dimmed (30%-100%) during a Scan, otherwise they will be discovered as simple On/Off switches
    • KNOWN ISSUE: In some cases dimmers connected to a F429 Dali-interface are not automatically discovered
  • Basic Scenario modules and CEN/CEN+ Scenario Control devices will be discovered by activation only. See discovery by activation for details. After confirming a discovered CEN/CEN+ scenario device from Inbox, activate again its buttons to add button channels automatically

# Discovery by Activation

BUS devices can also be discovered if they are activated while an Inbox Scan has been started: start a new Scan, wait 15-20 seconds and then while the Scan is still active, activate the physical device (for example dim the dimmer) to have it discovered by the binding. Setting the parameter discoveryByActivation=true for a BUS gateway Thing makes discovery by activation always working also when an Inbox Scan hasn't been started.

If a device cannot be discovered automatically from Inbox it's always possible to add it manually, see Configuring Devices.

# Zigbee Discovery

  • The Zigbee USB Gateway must be inserted in one of the USB ports of the openHAB computer before a discovery is started
  • IMPORTANT NOTE: As for other openHAB bindings using the USB/serial ports, on Linux the openhab user must be member of the dialout group to be able to use USB/serial port; set the group with the following command:
sudo usermod -a -G dialout openhab
  • The user will need to logout and login to see the new group added. If you added your user to this group and still cannot get permission, reboot Linux to ensure the new group permission is attached to the openhab user.
  • Once the Zigbee USB Gateway is added and online, a second Inbox scan will discover devices connected to it. Because of the Zigbee radio network, device discovery will take ~40-60 sec. Be patient!
  • Wireless devices must be part of the same Zigbee network of the Zigbee USB Gateway to discover them. Please refer to this video by BTicino (opens new window) to setup a Zigbee wireless network which includes the Zigbee USB Gateway
  • Only powered wireless devices part of the same Zigbee network and within radio coverage of the Zigbee USB Gateway will be discovered. Unreachable or not powered devices will be discovered as GENERIC devices and cannot be controlled
  • Wireless control units cannot be discovered by the Zigbee USB Gateway and therefore are not supported

# Thing Configuration

# Configuring BUS/SCS Gateway

Configuration parameters are:

  • host : IP address / hostname of the BUS/SCS gateway (String, mandatory)
    • Example: 192.168.1.35
  • port : port (int, optional, default: 20000)
  • passwd : gateway password (String, required for gateways that have a password. Default: 12345)
    • Example: abcde or 12345
    • if the BUS/SCS gateway is configured to accept connections from the openHAB computer IP address, no password should be required
    • in all other cases, a password must be configured. This includes gateways that have been discovered and added from Inbox: without a password configured they will remain OFFLINE
  • discoveryByActivation: discover BUS devices when they are activated also when a device scan hasn't been started from Inbox (boolean, optional, default: false). See Discovery by Activation.
  • dateTimeSynch: synchronise date and time of slave elements on the SCS BUS using openHAB timestamp (boolean, optional, default: false). Set this parameter to true to send time-date synchronisation commands on the BUS when the timestamp received from the gateway differs by more than 1 minute from that of openHAB. Useful if the BUS gateway is not syncronized with Internet time servers and with daylight saving time changes.

Alternatively the BUS/SCS Gateway thing can be configured using the .things file, see openwebnet.things example below.

# Configuring Wireless Zigbee USB Gateway

Configuration parameters are:

  • serialPort : the serial port where the Zigbee USB Gateway is connected (String, mandatory)
    • Examples: /dev/ttyUSB0 (Linux/RaPi), COM3 (Windows)

Alternatively the Zigbee USB Gateway thing can be configured using the .things file, see openwebnet.things example below.

# Configuring Devices

Devices can be discovered automatically using an Inbox Scan after a gateway has been configured and connected.

For any manually added device, you must configure:

  • the associated gateway Thing (Parent Bridge menu)
  • the where configuration parameter (OpenWebNet Address): this is the OpenWebNet address configured for the device in the BTicino/Legrand system. This address can be found either on the device itself (Physical configuration, using jumpers in case of BUS) or through the MyHOME_Suite software (Virtual configuration). The address can have several formats depending on the device/system:
    • example for BUS/SCS system:
      • light device A=2 (Area 2), PL=4 (Light-point 4) --> where="24"
      • light device A=03, PL=11 on local bus 01 --> where="0311#4#01"
      • scenario control module address 53 --> where="53"
      • CEN scenario A=05, PL=12 --> where="0512"
      • CEN+ scenario 5: add 2 before --> where="25"
      • dry Contact or IR Interface 99: add 3 before --> where="399"
      • energy meter F520/F521 numbered 1: add 5 before --> where="51"
      • energy meter F522/F523 numbered 4: add 7 before and #0 after --> where="74#0"
      • energy meter F520/F521 the energyRefreshPeriod configuration parameter sets the number of minutes (the minimum value is 30, the maximum value is 1440) between refreshes for energy totalizers (default: 30 minutes) --> energyRefreshPeriod = 35
      • alarm zone 2 --> where="2"
    • example for Zigbee devices: where=765432101#9. The ID of the device (ADDR part) is usually written in hexadecimal on the device itself, for example ID 0074CBB1: convert to decimal (7654321) and add 01#9 at the end to obtain where=765432101#9. For 2-unit switch devices (zb_on_off_switch2u), last part should be 00#9.

# Configuring Thermo

In BTicino MyHOME Thermoregulation (WHO=4) each zone has associated a thermostat, additional temperature sensors (optional), actuators and heating/conditioning valves. A zone is associated to at least one thermostat and one actuator.

Thermo zones can be configured defining a bus_thermo_zone Thing for each zone with the following parameters:

  • the where configuration parameter (OpenWebNet Address):
    • example BUS/SCS zone 1 --> where="1"
  • the standAlone configuration parameter (boolean, default: true): identifies if the zone is managed or not by a Central Unit (4- or 99-zones). standAlone=true means the zone is indipendent and no Central Unit is present in the system.

Temperature sensors can be configured defining a bus_thermo_sensor Thing with the following parameters:

  • the where configuration parameter (OpenWebNet Address):
    • example sensor 5 of external zone 00 --> where="500"
    • example: slave sensor 3 of zone 2 --> where="302"

The (optional) Central Unit can be configured defining a bus_themo_cu Thing with the where configuration parameter (OpenWebNet Address) set to where="#0" for a 99-zone Central Unit (model 3550) or where="#0#1" for a 4-zone Central Unit (models L/N/NT/HD/HC/HS 4695) configured as zone 1.

# Thermo Central Unit integration known limitations
  • Read CU setPoint temperature when in WEEKLY / SCENARIO / PROTECTION / VACATION / HOLIDAY
  • Set VACATION deadline date / time
  • Central Unit Programming and Customisations settings (T1/2/3 temperature levels, setting date & time, weekly/scenarios/holiday profiles programming, etc.)

# Configuring Alarm and Auxiliary (AUX)

NOTE 1 Receiving AUX messages originating from the BUS is not supported yet, only sending messages to the BUS is supported

NOTE 2 Alarm messages on BUS are not sent by MyHOMEServer1, therefore this gateway cannot be used to integrate the BTicino Alarm system

BUS Auxiliary commands (WHO=9) can be used to send on the BUS commands to control, for example, external devices or a BTicino Alarm system.

The BTicino Alarm system cannot be controlled directly via the OpenWebNet protocol: the only possibility is to use AUX commands and configure your Burglar-alarm Unit (Automations section) to execute some commands (e.g. Arm alarm) when it receives a particular AUX OpenWebNet command. Alarm Automations allow you to run an OpenWebNet command when a particular event occurs; in this case, the events are changes of state of the AUX device (WHO=9) and the command to be performed is a burglar alarm command (WHO=5).

To configure Alarm Automations go to the menu:

Antitheft -> Automations

# Example configuration Automation 1: when AUX-4 goes ON, then ARM all zones

With this configuration when AUX where=4 goes ON, the Alarm will execute the automation and send command *5*8## to ARM all zones:

Name: Arm all zones
Event: command OPEN = *9*1*4##
OPEN command to execute: *5*8##
# Example configuration Automation 2: when AUX-4 goes OFF, then DISARM all zones
Name: Disarm all zones
Event: command OPEN = *9*0*4##
OPEN command to execute: *5*9##
# Example configuration Automation 3: when AUX-5 goes ON, then ARM zones 1, 3, 4
Name: Arm zones 1 3 4
Event: command OPEN = *9*1*5##
OPEN command to execute: *5*8#134##

# Notes on channels

# shutter position

For Percent commands and position feedback to work correctly, the shutterRun Thing config parameter must be configured equal to the time (in milliseconds) to go from full UP to full DOWN. It's possible to enter a value manually or set shutterRun=AUTO (default) to calibrate shutterRun automatically.

# Automatic calibration of shutterRun

When shutterRun is set to AUTO, a UP >> DOWN >> Position% cycle will be performed automatically the first time a Percent command is sent to the shutter: this way the binding will calculate the shutter "run time" and set the shutterRun parameter accordingly.

NOTE A "stop time" parameter is usually set on the physical actuator (eg. F411U2) either via virtual configuration (MyHOME_Suite: parameters named "Stop time" or "M") or physical configuration (jumpers): check the actuator instructions to configure correctly this parameter on the actuator before performing auto calibration. If the "stop time" on the physical actuator is wrongly set or cannot be modified to the actual "run time" of the shutter, auto calibration cannot be used and shutterRun should be set manually to the actual runtime of the shutters.

# Position estimation of the shutter
  • if shutterRun is not set, or is set to AUTO but calibration has not been performed yet, then position estimation will remain UNDEF (undefined)
  • if shutterRun is wrongly set higher than the actual runtime or the "stop time" of the actuator (see NOTE above), then position estimation will remain UNDEF: try to reduce shutterRun until you find the right value
  • before adding/configuring roller shutter Things it is suggested to have all roller shutters UP, otherwise the Percent command will not work until the roller shutter is fully rolled up
  • if openHAB is restarted the binding does not know if a shutter position has changed in the meantime, so its position will be UNDEF. Move the shutter all UP/DOWN to synchronise again its position with the binding
  • the shutter position is estimated based on UP/DOWN timings: an error of ±2% is normal

# Scenario channels

Basic Scenarios and CEN/CEN+ Scenarios channels are TRIGGER channels (opens new window): they handle events and do not have a state.

A powerful feature is to detect scenario activations and CEN/CEN+ buttons press events to trigger rules in openHAB: this way openHAB becomes a very powerful scenario manager activated by BTicino scenario control modules or by CEN/CEN+ scenarios physical buttons. See openwebnet.rules for examples on how to define rules that trigger on scenarios and on CEN/CEN+ button press events.

It's also possible to send virtual scenario activation and virtual press events on the BUS, for example to enable the activation of MH202 or F420 scenarios from openHAB.. See openwebnet.sitemap & openwebnet.rules sections for examples on how to use the activateScenario and virtualPress actions connected to a pushbutton on a sitemap.

  • basic scenario channels are named scenario and possible events are: SCENARIO_01 ... SCENARIO_16 (or up to SCENARIO_20 in case of module IR3456) when a scenario is activated
  • CEN/CEN+ channels are named button#X where X is the button number on the CEN/CEN+ Scenario Control device
    • in the .thing file configuration you can specify the buttons parameter to define a comma-separated list of buttons numbers [0-31] configured for the scenario device, example: buttons=1,2,4
    • possible events are:
      • for CEN:
        • START_PRESS - sent when you start pressing the button
        • SHORT_PRESS - sent if you pressed the button shorter than 0,5sec (sent at the moment when you release it)
        • EXTENDED_PRESS - sent if you keep the button pressed longer than 0,5sec; will be sent again every 0,5sec as long as you hold pressed (good for dimming rules)
        • RELEASE_EXTENDED_PRESS - sent once when you finally release the button after having it pressed longer than 0,5sec
      • for CEN+:
        • SHORT_PRESS - sent if you pressed the button shorter than 0,5sec (sent at the moment when you release it)
        • START_EXTENDED_PRESS - sent once as soon as you keep the button pressed longer than 0,5sec
        • EXTENDED_PRESS - sent after START_EXTENDED_PRESS if you keep the button pressed longer; will be sent again every 0,5sec as long as you hold pressed (good for rules involving dimming/volume)
        • RELEASE_EXTENDED_PRESS - sent once when you finally release the button after having it pressed longer than 0,5sec

# Thermo Central Unit mode: WEEKLY and SCENARIO

There are three WEEKLY and sixteen SCENARIO programs defined for the thermo Central Unit.

In order to activate one specific weekly or scenario program two different channels must be used:

  • with the mode channel it's possible to set the mode (WEEKLY or SCENARIO)
  • with weeklyProgram (if WEEKLY was set) or scenarioProgram (if SCENARIO was set) channels you can set the specific weekly/scenario program number

Example: if you want to activate SCENARIO number 9 on the thermo Central Unit you have to set channel mode = SCENARIO and channel scenarioProgram = 9.
