RFXCom OpenHab connect KaKu

Postby Piros » Mon Feb 11, 2019 8:39 am

Hi All,

After looking on forums and the internet I still have problems to connect KaKu (Klik Aan Klik Uit) to OpenHab.

I hoped to find a "How To Do" but couldn't find it.

Just started with OpenHab with the following configuration:
- RaspberryPi with OpenHabian (and also a windows pc with Openhab for testing)
- RFXCom RFXtrx433XL
- Klik aan Klik uit (several components (Dimmer, Blinds), also Hub ICS-2000 (Which I thing can be removed if RFXCom is working)
- IKEA Tradfri (1 Lamp and 1 Hub).

Now I can control the Tradfri lamp but I don't have a clue how to connect KaKu.

are there examples available?

KAKU modules with a type A... are controlled by the RFXtrx433XL using the AC protocol.
Check with RFXmngr if the KAKU commands are received with AC enabled and control the KAKU using Lighting2 - AC

I suppose you find an answer on the openhab forum: https://community.openhab.org/search?q=klikaanklikuit

On the Openhab Forum I found a solution of RobertOnOHCommunity with the following instructions

1 Run the following command:
sudo gpasswd -a openhab dialout
2 Run the following command:
sudo chmod 660 /dev/ttyUSB0
3 Edit /etc/default/openhab2 and set the following, then restart OH2:
4 Place a rfxtrx.things file in /etc/openhab2/things/ with the following content:
Bridge rfxcom:bridge:usb0 [ serialPort="/dev/ttyUSB0" ]
5 Wait one minute, a new Thing should be discovered.
E.g. for KlikaanKlikuit: Start pressing on the KAKU remote control to individually discover each lamp. If you have an Internet Control Station: toggle your lamp via the remote app on your phone, so that these codes are also known in OH.

I didn't succeed in point 3, but somehow the above is working.

and now it I'm able to read in the sensors.
