Firmware

To utilize all features the binding requires firmware version 1.5.7 or newer, version 1.6 is strongly recommended. This should be available for all devices. Older versions work in general, but have impacts to functionality (e.g. no events for battery powered devices).

The binding displays a WARNING in the log if the firmware is older. It also informs you when an update is available. Use the device' web ui or the Shelly App to perform the update.

Other resources

Check the following resources for additional information

Discovery

The binding uses mDNS to discover the Shelly devices. They periodically announce their presence, which is used by the binding to find them on the local network.

Sometimes you need to run the manual discovery multiple times until you see all your devices.

Dynamic creation of channels

The Shelly series of devices has many combinations of relays, meters (different versions), sensors etc. For this the binding creates various channels dynamically based on the status information provided by the device at initialization time. If a channel is missing make sure the thing was discovered correctly and is ONLINE. If a channel is missing delete the thing and re-discover it.

Important for battery power devices

Make sure to wake up battery powered devices (press the button inside the device), so that they show up on the network. The device has a push button inside, open the case, press that button and the LED starts blinking. The device should show up in the Inbox and can be added.

Important: If device is in sleep mode and can't be reached by the binding, the Thing will change into UNKNOWN state. Once the device wakes up, the thing will perform initialization and the state will change to ONLINE.

The first time a device is discovered and initialized successfully, the binding will be able to perform auto-initialization when OH is restarted. Waking up the device triggers the event URL and/or CoIoT packet, which is processed by the binding and triggers initialization. Once a device is initialized, it is no longer necessary to manually wake it up after an openHAB restart.

Devices that have no battery are expected to be ON/reachable on the network at all times. Otherwise the thing will go OFFLINE with COMMUNICATION_ERROR as status.

Re-discover when IP address has changed

Important: The IP address should not be changed after the device is added to openHAB.

This can be achieved by

  • assigning a static IP address or
  • using DHCP and setup the router to always assign the same IP address to the device

When the IP address changes for a device you need to delete the Thing and then re-discover the device. In this case channel linkage gets lost and you need to re-link the channels/items.

Password Protected Devices

The Shelly devices can be configured to require authentication through a user id and password. In this case you need to set these values in the Thing configuration after approving the Inbox entry.

Binding Configuration

The binding has the following configuration options:

Parameter Description Mandatory Default
defaultUserId Default user id for HTTP authentication when not set in the Thing no admin
defaultPassword Default password for HTTP authentication when not set in the Thing no admin
autoCoIoT Auto-enable CoIoT events when firmware 1.6+ü is enabled no true

The binding defaults to CoIoT events when firmware 1.6 or newer is detected. This provides near-realtime updates when status values have changed. This mode also overrules event settings in the thing configuration. Disabling this feature allows granular control, which event types will be used. This is also required when the Shelly devices are not located on the same IP subnet (e.g. using a VPN). In this case autoCoIoT should be disabled, CoIoT events will not work, because the underlying CoAP protocol is based on Multicast IP, which usually doesn't passes a VPN or routed network.

Thing Configuration

Parameter Description Mandatory Default
deviceIp IP address of the Shelly device yes none
userId The user id used for HTTP authentication no none
password Password for HTTP authentication* no none
lowBattery Threshold for battery level. Set alert when level is below. no 20 (=20%), only for battery powered devices
updateInterval Interval for the background status check in seconds. no 1h for battery powered devices, 60s for all others
eventsButton true: register event "trigger when a button is pushed" no false
eventsPush true: register event "trigger on short and long push" no false
eventsSwitch true: register event "trigger of switching the relay output" no true
eventsSensorReport true: register event "posted updated sensor data" no true for sensor devices
eventsCoIoT true: Listen for CoIoT/COAP events no true for battery devices, false for others

Channels

General Notes

  • channels input and input1/input2 get only updated with firmware 1.5.6+.
  • channel button: Short push and long push events require firmware version 1.5.6+.
  • Use the channel rollerpos only if you need the inverted roller position, otherwise use the control channel with item type Number
  • The different devices have different types of power meters, which are mapped in different sets of channels.

Every device has a channel group device with the following channels:

Group Channel Type read-only Desciption
device uptime Number yes Number of seconds since the device was powered up
wifiSignal Number yes WiFi signal strength (4=excellent, 3=good, 2=not string, 1=unreliable, 0=none)

The accumulated channels are only available for devices with more than 1 meter. accumulatedReturned only for the EM and EM3.

Events / Alarms

The binding provides health monitoring functions for the device. When an alarm condition is detected the channel alarm gets triggered and provides one of the following alarm types:

Non-battery powerd devices

Event Type Description
RESTARTED The device has been restarted. This could be an indicator for a firmware problem.
WEAK_SIGNAL An alarm is triggered when RSSI is < -80, which indicates an unstable connection.
OVER_TEMP The device is over heating, check installation and housing.
OVER_LOAD An over load condition has been detected, e.g. from the roller motor.
OVER_POWER Maximum allowed power was exceeded. The relay was turned off.
LOAD_ERROR Device reported a load problem, so far Dimmer only.

Sensors

Event Type Description
POWERON Device was powered on.
PERIODIC Periodic wakeup.
BUTTON Button was pressed, e.g. to wakeup the device.
SENSOR Wake-up due to updated sensor data.
ALARM Alarm condition was detected, check status, could be OPENED for the DW, flood alarm, smoke alarm
BATTERY Device reported an update to the battery status.

A new alarm will be triggered on a new condition or every 5 minutes if the condition persists.

when
    Channel "shelly:shelly1:XXXXXX:device#alarm" triggered

meter currentWatts Number yes Current power consumption in Watts (all channels)

Please note that the settings of channel group color are only valid in color mode and vice versa for white mode. The current firmware doesn't support the timestamp report for the meters. The binding emulates this by using the system time on every update.

In white mode each RGBW2 channel is defined as DimmableLight. This means that the brightness channel has 2 functions

  • Sending ON/OFF (OnOffType) to power on/off the channel
  • Sending a Number to set the brightness (percentage 0..100)

Sending brightness 0 will automatically turn off the channel if it's currently on. Sending brightness > 0 will automatically turn on the channel if it's currently off. You can define 2 items (1 Switch, 1 Number) mapping to the same channel, see example rules.
