Have a look that page from Wiki. You should have EnOcean TCM120 to control your switches and other EnOcean devices from LinuxMCE.

nite_man, on that wiki-page you can find on how to setup the switches. But how to create actors?
Do they need to be a child of the TCM120 or the Switch? What Device Template do i need to use? And how to send a Enocean Signal to add this to the actor?

Thank you!

Not sure that this functionality is implemented in the current EnOcean interface.

Is there really nobody who is using Enocean?

I already created the devices for my USB-Gateway and i connected one rocker switch. That seems to work.
But know i don't know how to control an actor. Which template do i have to use? Is there a template? And what information do i need to send to the Actor?

Regards,
Grind

we need to add support for the actor. Do you want to help? Nobody provided me with one, so I did only add support for the rocker switch till now. When you set up a dev environment and provide me with ssh access this should be a matter of one or two hours.

Hari, nice to see that there is somebody who knows about Enocean ;)

Sure i can provide you with ssh access to my Core.
But if you need me to press the "Learn"-Button on the actor we need to schedule a Timeframe.
I will try to configure my Firewall and NAT-Router tomorrow and after that i will send you the Login using PM.

You are blocking privat messages?!

sorry i just killed my Core and i am not able to boot anymore :(
As i am away for the weekend i will try to fix this on Monday.

But i am very interrested in doing things like this myself.
So implementing new Hardware which already is supported in Linux.
Maybe you can tell me how to do this? Which docs do i have to read? And where to start?
I already had a look at the the "Programmer's Guide" but i think thats a bit too much?!
If you are going to implement a new Enocean receiver for example it would be great if you can write down all the steps. That doesn't need to be very pretty and i can do all the cosmetic work for you if you want to.
