# Swegon Ventilation Binding v1

This binding is used to get live data from Swegon ventilation systems into items in openHAB. It should be compatible with at least Swegon CASA models.

# Prerequisites

swegongw is an application that reads packets from a serial port (an RS-485 adapter is needed) and relays them to openHAB via UDP. The Swegon Ventilation binding listens on the UDP port and extracts control data from UDP packets.

C code is available here (opens new window).


gcc -std=gnu99 -o swegongw swegongw.c


swegongw -h 
swegongw -v -d /dev/ttyUSB0 -a

# Binding Configuration

This binding can be configured in the file services/swegonventilation.cfg.

Property Default Required Description
udpPort 9998 No UDP port on which the binding will listen
throttleTime 0 No Throttle received messages. 0 = throttle is disabled, otherwise throttle time in milliseconds.

# Item Configuration
