EIB/KNX with Eibd
« on: August 08, 2011, 05:03:46 pm »
Hi
  anyone can you help me about a Eibd configuration...
I've installed Eibd like a guide in
wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/EIB/KNX_with_eibd
Eibd work fine with eibd with command
/usr/bin/eibd -D -T -R -S -i -u --daemon=/var/log/eibd.log ipt:192.168.0.191
like 192.168.0.191 is the KNX/IP gateway.
If I send terminal command
groupwrite ip:127.0.0.1 0/0/7 1
it work fine.
Now the question is that I would like use LinuxMCE for control light.
I don't know how create a device-->interface in Webadmin panel for work with eibd over IP.
In particular:
manufacturer?
device category?
device template?
I use linucMCE 8.10.

Many thanks
Bibi

Many Thanks Posde
Now working fine.
This is the procedure that i've followed.
1) sudo su
2) cd /usr/pluto/bin
3) rm EIB
4) wget  deb.linuxmce.org/ubuntu/dists/intrepid/EIB (insert http before)
5) chmod + x EIB
6) restart with "quick reload router" button on webadmin
On webadmin
A) Insert INTERFACES (manufacture --> PLUTO; Device category -->Interfaces; device template --> EIB serial port dev/ttyS0)
B) Insert Light (Light switch on/off template 37; port/channel -->0/0/x|0/0/y_state; Controlled By: EIB)

 where 0/0/x and 0/0/y_state are light group address and state light group address.

Thanks a lot
Bye John

Next time, insert the EIB device first, and wget the EIB after. Otherwise your downloaded EIB file gets overwritten by the original pluto-eib  device, which supports EIB via comport

where 0/0/x and 0/0/y_state are light group address and state light group address.

I think that this is my problem.   :P
What's the difference between the 'light group address' and the 'state light group address'?

In ETS, i've configured a group 0/0/1 where i've put my output relay in.
So i suppose that this is my 'light group address'?

Where/how do you configure the 'state light group address'?  ::)

another group address which returns the state of the light.

One groupaddress is for turning on/off, and the other for picking up the current status of the light.

So if i understand it well, i simply create 2 groups 0/0/1 and 0/0/2 in fe ETS, with each time the same relay in?

This isn't really necessary.  :-[
Don't ask me why, but it works when you only put in 0/0/1...

Well, to get the status of the light correct in the floorplan, you need to have the group address of the status as well. That way the floorplan status of the lights gets updated whenever and however the light gets turned on and off. i.e. if a motion sensor turns on the light, you see it on the floorplan, IF you have a status link. I don't think you receive that information, when you are missing the status.

IF you have a status link.

I suppose this is hardware related?
Or does a normal 'output relay module' also provide this kind of info (fe the Gira 103800: sch.jaloeizactor 16v/8V 16A KNX)?

It is part of the programming of the specific module. Check with ETS if your device has such a property and create a group address for it. The MDT stuff I am using, lighting actors and blind actors, as well as the PIRs do support it.
