Real basic question, but the instructions for starting up Open Remote jump over a few things for me. It says unzip the down loaded files but for me they seem to be already unzipped. Also it says to "change the home directory which is the one we are in when opening a
terminal window." I'm confused on what that actually means. I have not got any response back when I email Open Remote. Thanks for any help

Tad Davis said: I have not got any response back when I email Open Remote.

The only specified way to get email support is to purchase the professional version from openremote.com for $150. You do get 3 months limited email support with that. May be they sell additional support there as well.

For your question, I am afraid you have to do a lot of reading in the on line documentation, since the community is no longer very active. Best chance to get response is by giving as much detail as you can. So for example the exact page where you get stuck, hardware you are using, things you want to achieve with OR.

PZ1 u cannoy download unziped files from the repository, it will always be in Zip format (or other tar etc format)

  • login using terminal utility to your linux system
  • do a "wget <http link>" to down the file
  • do a "unzip <file name u downloaded>"
  • it will unzip in the current home directory of the user where you logged in - its perfectly fine to leave them there.
  • cd to "bin" directory
  • sudo chomod +x openremote.sh
  • sudo ./openremote.sh start

it should have ur openremote controller up and running on defaul port of 8080
