OpenHAB Configuration

Configuration example to use the Smart Swimming Pool system on openHAB.


The Smart Swimming Pool project uses Homie 3.0 based MQTT messaging. Therfor you have to install an MQTT broker in your environment.

Raspberry Pi

I use an Raspberry Pi (Model 3) ( Amazon). The latest version of openHAB has an embedded MQTT broker. I us a seperate broker Mosquitto on Raspberry Pi.

Install Mosquitto

  • Install Mosquitto on Raspberry Pi:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    sudo apt-get install mosquitto
  • In Paper UI install add-on ‘MQTT Binding’ from bindings.
  • Check services/mqtt.cfg for your environment.
