# Bosch Indego Binding

This is the Binding for Bosch Indego Connect lawn mowers. Thank´s to zazaz-de who found out how the API works. His Java Library (opens new window) made this Binding possible.

# Configuration of the Thing

Currently the binding supports indego mowers as a thing type with this parameters:

parameter datatype required
username String yes
password String yes
refresh integer no (default: 180, minimum: 60)

The refresh interval is specified in seconds.

A possible entry in your thing file could be:

boschindego:indego:lawnmower [username="[email protected]", password="idontneedtocutthelawnagain", refresh=120]

# Channels

item-type description
state Number You can send commands to this channel to control the mower and read the simplified state from it (1=mow, 2=return to dock, 3=pause)
errorcode Number Errorcode of the mower (0=no error, readonly)
statecode Number Detailed state of the mower. I included English and German map-files to read the state easier (readonly)
textualstate String State as a text. (readonly)
ready Number Shows if the mower is ready to mow (1=ready, 0=not ready, readonly)
mowed Dimmer Cut grass in percent (readonly)

For example you can use this sitemap entry to control the mower manually:

Switch item=indegostate  mappings=[ 1="Mow", 2="Return",3="Pause" ]
