Enigma2 Binding

The binding integrates Enigma2 devices.

Supported Things

Enigma2 devices

Enigma2 based set-top boxes with an installed OpenWebIf are supported.

Device Settings

The Device must be connected to the same network as openHAB.

Discovery

Devices are auto discovered through HTTP in the local network.

If automatic discovery is not possible you may still manually configure a device based on the hostname.

Thing Configuration

Enigma2 has the following configuration parameters:

Name Description Mandatory
host Hostname or IP address of the Enigma2 device yes
refreshInterval The refresh interval in seconds yes
timeout The timeout for reading from the device in seconds yes
user Optional: The Username of the Enigma2 Web API no
password Optional: The Password of the Enigma2 Web API no

Configuration in .things file

Set the parameters as in the following example:

Thing enigma2:device:192_168_0_3 [host="192.168.1.3", refreshInterval="5", timeout="5", user="usename" , password="***"]
