# Vitotronic Binding
Viessmann heating systems with Vitotronic has an optolink Interface for maintenance. This interface can use for get/set data in the heating system. see on openv (opens new window)
The Vitotronic binding is a solution to bind this interface into openHAB. It supports the separation of the heating adaption from the integration in openHAB (opens new window).
The adapter transforms the address oriented raw interface of the Vitotronic to an abstract format. The adapter itself is not a part of the binding. A alpha version is available here (opens new window) More Information about the adapter (opens new window)
# Supported Things
For easy using are the main things of a heating system are already define in this binding:
- heating (Vitotronic core system)
- pelletburner (Pellet Fireplace, works for wood also)
- oilburner (Oil Fireplace)
- gasburner (Gas Fireplace)
- storagetank (Storage Tank, stores heat in a water tank on 3 levels: bottom, middle, top=hot water)
- circuit (Heating circuit controls the flow between the heating system and the radiators in the rooms)
- solar (Solar water heating (SWH): Convert sunlight into energy for water heating)
For advanced used 3 basic things of a headingsystem define also.
- temperaturesensor (Single temperature sensor)
- pump (Single pump)
- valve (Single valve)
Note: The mapping of things and channels to the heating system addresses must be done in the adapter.
The binding discovers the adapter with broadcast and put the found
vitotronic:bridge into the inbox.
For automatic detection the adapter and openHAB must be on the same LAN.
The discovery itself must be start in the Paper UI.
If the bridge isn't on the same LAN the bridge can also add manually.
In this case the
IP-Address and the
adapterID is required.
vitotronic:bridge added a second discovery will be start.
It discovers all things, define in the adapter and put found things into the inbox.
# Binding Configuration
Binding itself has 4 configuration parameters:
- ipAddress (The IP address of the Optolink adapter)
- port (Port of the LAN gateway. Default: 31113)
- adapterID (The ID/Name of the adapter)
- refreshInterval (Refresh time for data in seconds. Default: 600 seconds)
If the adapter is automatic discovered the ipAddress, and adapterID will be set by discovery. The rereshInterval can be set between 60 and 600 seconds. The minimal setting is dependent of the performance of the adapter.
# Thing Configuration
There is no configuration of Things necessary. Only some channels are set active by default. If this channels are defined in the adapter and will be used in openHAB it must set active manually. Don't change the Thing Name. It is the reference to the name in the adapter.
The follow channels are implemented:
