Openhab on Raspberry Pi syncing time/date on 'Velbus'-bus



Since I was able to enable Openhab and Velbus I was wondering how an automatic time/date sync could be done from the Pi to the Velbus system. Is there a command able to do this?

Thanks again,




I’m reliably informed that it’s on the to-do list.


When creating ‘my’ scripts (, I included the option to sync the date and time.
I do this every night at 4 o’ clock so the time is corrected after it changed due to daylight saving.

I also added an option that loops all glass panels and configure them so they transmit the temperature every 60 seconds.
In my setup, some of the glass panels forget these settings after a while.



I’ll check it after this sunny WE :wink:

Enjoy your WE and thanks again for your helpful replies.



Hi Stef,

just to make things clear to me…

After I upgraded to Openhab 2.3 on the pi, I enabled the Velbus binding 2.3.0 Snapshot This is probably not the same binding as in your Velserver (see above)? So this means that in this 2.3.0 Velbus binding no time sync will be done?

Thanks for your time.

Best regards,



where can I find the script to reset the temperature settings, Greetings Joram


I’m told that time updating is under test right now :slight_smile:
As are plenty of other great features…


Looking forward to it Steward. Thanks for sharing this information.

Big thanks also to the developers!

Best regards,



Hi Jona

Have you tried any of Cedricb’s recent versions of the OpenHab2 Velbus binding?

I believe that time & date updating has been in there for quite some time now.




Hi Stuart,

Haven’t seen your latest reply because found it in my spam folder today…:scream:
Believe I tried the one of 1 month ago. Can’t test it right now because I’m on holidays for 1 month in Canada. Will download latest version upon arrival home. Cedric confirmed you the time and date update in the latest version?

Will let you know when it works.

Thanks as always for your kind help!!!
