OpenHAB with Plugwise configuration

Postby johnny5 » Wed Jan 21, 2015 5:45 pm

Hi everyone,

I have been struggling with plugwise configuration for OpenHAB. Dispite the lack of clear information and examples i have managed to find out that the port should be COM3, verified from the source software screen on the stick.
Code: Select all
plugwise:stick.port=COM3


The circeplus mac sould be like this i guess. What "000D6F000" does, i don't know, but the 2 samples i could find both used this part. The rest of the code is the one for my circle+, again, taken from the source software.
Code: Select all
plugwise:circleplus.mac=000D6F0003973A7C


I have 2 devices (for testing) specified in the same .cfg file. I saw this somewhere, but it was in comment. I've tried both, with no success. It's in comment at the moment.
Code: Select all
#plugwise:7O_Spotjes_4.mac      =000D6F0002779532
#plugwise:G_Tablet_DIT101201.mac=000D6F0002768B94


in the .items file the 2 devices exist. their on/off signals are directed to the mac id's i.e. their circles.
Code: Select all
Switch   Switch_7O_Spotjes_4         label="Overloop"         <plugwise>   (RG_V1e_Verlichting)   { plugwise="[ON:000D6F0002779532:state:30], [OFF:000D6F0002779532:state:30]"}
Switch   Switch_G_Tablet_DIT101201   label="Gamekamer_Tablet"   <plugwise>   (Tablets)            { plugwise="[ON:000D6F0002768B94:state:30], [OFF:000D6F0002768B94:state:30]"}


The .sitemap is perhaps less exciting, partly because it looks fine to me, but still, here is the (i believe) relevant code:
Code: Select all
      Switch   item=Switch_7O_Spotjes_4      label="Verlichting overloop"   mappings=[OFF="Uit", ON="Aan"]
      Switch   item=Switch_G_Tablet_DIT101201   label="Gamekamer Tablet"      mappings=[OFF="Uit", ON="Aan"]


The software runs without any error or warning. On the site i can press the buttons and the server log shows the commands i have given.
Code: Select all
2015-01-21 17:35:46.286 [INFO ] [runtime.busevents             ] - Switch_7O_Spotjes_4 received command ON
2015-01-21 17:35:47.932 [INFO ] [runtime.busevents             ] - Switch_G_Tablet_DIT101201 received command OFF
2015-01-21 17:35:51.337 [INFO ] [runtime.busevents             ] - Switch_G_Tablet_DIT101201 received command ON


However, the part where i realize something is wrong is here. No device toggles it's power. Both tested devices are within earshot AND sight of my so i am 100% sure there is no response. via the plugwise interface i have confirmed the devices physically operate fine and i can really hear and see the result.

Can anyone advice me where to look for the problem?
Did i make a mistake with copy/pasting the wrong value?
Have i misunderstood any relevancy of names in the configurations?

i just don't know.
