openHAB 2.4 erschienen

openHAB Logo

Die gleichnamige Open-Source Lösung zur Hausautomatisierung ist im Dezember in der Version 2.4 erschienen. Das mit Java entwickelte Serversystem ist seit 2010 auf den Markt und wird inzwischen von einer aktiven Gemeinschaft vorangetrieben. openHAB ist herstellerunabhängige und setzt auf auf viele übliche Protokolle.

Die neue Version enthält viele Neuerungen, Verbesserungen sowie Bugfixes. Zudem wurden 34 neue Add-ons veröffentlicht und vorhandene aktualisiert.

openHAB 2.4 wesentliche Neuerungen

  • Profile ermöglichen es Regeln aufzunehmen, die für verschiedene Geräte und Situationen mit den selben Aktionen gelten, dadurch werden wiederholte Regeln gespart und die Übersichtlichkeit gewahrt, die Auswahl eines Profils erfolgt in der PaperUI
  • 2 neue Optionen für Text-to-Speech mit Google cloud TTS engine und Pico TTS service
  • HABot ist eine Möglichkeit mit openHAB per Sprache zu interagieren. Zudem bringt es ein graphisches Interface mit einer neuen UI für openHAB. HABot nutzt natural language processing (NLP) und Maschinenlernen mittels Apache OpenNLP. Es kann angepasst und konfiguriert werden. Es kann z.B. Bilder der Webcam anzeigen, Wetterdaten, Historische Daten und Geräte steuern.HABot Smartphone UI
  • SmartMeter Binding nach IEC 62056-21 und Supprt von Smart meter Language SML sowie DSMR Binding für die Niederlande
  • GPS Tracker welches OwnTracks im sicheren HTTPs Privat-Mode integriert
  • Aktoren und Sensoren von EnOcean werden mit dem neuen EnOcean Binding gefunden, secure gepaired und somit voll unterstützt
  • MQTT Binding ist nun nach openHAB 2 portiert worden, was nun eine grafische Verwaltung mittels Paper UI und Integration der Geräte im Netzwerk ermöglicht
