Download

Use the link in the above table or check out the GitLab page.

Installation

All instalation steps are handled by the plugin itself once you start the installation on the plugins page of Loxberry.

You can use either the direct link to get the latest release version or download the zip and upload it to your Loxberry directly.

Configuration

If you have a network eBus Esera Coupler please use the following configuration line as a starting point (although network couplers are not recommended):

“--scanconfig --localhost --accesslevel='*' --enabledefine --device=a.b.c.d:5000 --initsend“

Where a.b.c.d is the IP of your Esera eBus coupler.

The main thing for you to configure are the ebusd startup arguments. Please see ebusd documentation here for more information.


Other possibility is enabling SetMode override. See more about this below.

SetMode Override - Vaillant only

I created this for my own needs, I did not want to use the original thermostat but still wanted to control the boiler via ebus. It uses a SetModeOverride message definition by andig. A requirement for this functionality is that there are no other thermostats plugged into an ebus circuit. Vaillant thermostats usually send out SetMode message every 5 seconds. SetModeOverride message is sent out by this plugin every 5 minutes or when a SetMode value is changed.

Description

Installs ebusd by john30, sets it up and provides a Loxone Miniserver compatible HTTP REST API.


Allows reading of ebus values as well as writing. If you add the option to startup arguments you can also directly write hex values to ebus.

Loxone config setup

See the below attached LoxPlan for usage

  1. hallo zusammen, nutzt jemand dieses Plugin generell bzw. mit Weishaupt Heizung? Ich habe noch immer keine Informationen wie man die CSV-Dateien für die Weishaupt-Kommunikation in dieses Plugin einbindet. Leider kam auch vom Entwickler dieses Plugins keine Antwort dazu.

    Gruß Stefan

  2. Hallo. Ich würde auch gerne wissen, wie bzw. wo man eine CSV Datei einfügt. Bei mir wäre es für eine Recovair 260/4 von Vaillant.
