Based on the Perl code found on leachy.homeip.net/velbus/perl/, I created a set of perl scripts that monitors the data on the bus.
I can also send basic commands on the bus (scan, push date & time update, request status, request name, …)
Currently, I’m parsing the status and names for some of the modules I have (VMB2BLE, VMB4DC, VMB4RYLD).
The data is stored in a MySQL database.
The next step is sending commands to the bus.
The long term goal is to create a web service for velbus and integrate this in openHAB.
Is anyone interested in such software?
I can keep it private, but I also can try to make it more open so others can use the code too.
PS: has anyone tried to query the name of channels of blind modules and parse the result? Because I think found a bug: the last bytes of the name of the second channel are actually the last bytes of the first channel
