Hi everyone

I'm looking for a way to control my AC-unit with openremote through Raspberry Pi. What I'd like to do is getting the values (0-100%, 0-255, 0/1 ...) from pressing or sliding something on openremote to my raspberry pi. So I can use them in python codes. So by example, if I press the "ON" button it sends a "1" signal that I can call in my python code. Does anyone know how to do this? I have only used openremote with knx directly and running the controller on the pc...
Is there a way to run the controller on raspberry pi and read out the signals?

Thanks in advance!

Kind regards,


Just search the forum with "Openremote Raspberry Pi" and you get plenty hits for your question.

Yeah, I did that... But I mostly find ways to install openremote controller on raspberry pi. But getting the server of OR on the raspberry is one thing, I want to design the commands that they are send to the raspberry pi so I can use them in my python program...

How does your AC-unit communicate with the outside world. What protocol?

With IR-signals. I decoded the IR signals with the raspberry pi using LIRC. Now I have the command irsend to send out the signals. But I want to program this with a visualisation from openremote...

Again a search on the site with "howto ir" gives quite a few relevant links I think

And again, I did that already. But I don't want to send IR signals with openremote, the IR signals are send by the Raspberry Pi. I just want to press a button on the raspberry pi so it sends a "1" signal or something like that to my raspberry that I can read for that specific button. So I can program it in python.
