For all those that enjoy a wide range of automation and AV devices in their homes, there will be a great announcement next month from OpenRemote.
But for Velbus users who already participate in this forum, we are going to leak the news right NOW.
Next month, June 2015, OpenRemote will have it’s back end code updated so that it provides full 2 way support for the current range of Velbus modules.
With new modules added as soon as possible.
OpenRemote users will be able to read all the status’ from their Velbus modules, including temperature status’.
Temperature mode set points will be able to be set from OpenRemote.
Button status’ can be shown within OpenRemote, or used in a rule to trigger an event on some of your other equipment.
Output devices can be directly controlled, or just show their status’.
Multiple Velbus networks can be bridged using rules and Macros.
Other equipment and protocols can show their status and messages on an Oled Glass panel (VMBGPOnD) using the Memo Text function.
All alarm times can be set from an OpenRemote panel.
Dimmers can be controlled using sliders for variable levels, or preset levels can be set within OpenRemote.
This is just a small example of what will be possible with the new support.
As soon as exact details are released about how to access this functionality, we’ll make sure we post the correct links right here.
In the mean time, if you’re interested in using OpenRemote, all you’ll need is a small server machine running something like Golfy’s PB_Server, links for which can be found in this forum.
This server machine could also host the OpenRemote Server.
Please feel free to IM for more information.
