FHEM is a GPL licensed perl server for house automation. It is used to automate some common tasks in the household like switching lamps, shutters, heating, etc. and to log events like temperature, humidity or power consumption. The program runs as a server, you can control it via web or smartphone front- ends, telnet or TCP/IP directly.

Homematic CCU is a central unit for house automation build by the company eQ-3.

Features
This service allows to send commands to FHEM or Homematic CCU on specific player actions in order to create a cinema like atmosphere at home. The user can configure commands to send to FHEM on various player events:
 
  • On XBMC Start
  • On XBMC Shutdown
  • On Video Playback Start
  • On Video Playback Pause
  • On Video Playback Stop
  • On Audio Playback Start
  • On Audio Playback Pause
  • On Audio Playback Stop

Optional daytime support (only FHEM) allows to specify an alternative set of commands to use during daylight hours.

Prerequisites
For FHEM you need a working installation and knowledge about the commands to send in order to get the desired results.

How to use the addon
You can install the addon by selecting it from the video addons in the official XBMC repository.

The addon communicates with FHEM using the telnet command line interface on port 7072 by default. If you have configured the telnet interface on a different port, you should adapt the port number in the addon configuration page, where you can also specify all commands you want to be issued on player actions. If the telnet inteface is not enabled in your FHEM configuration, you should add the following lines to your FHEM configuration file and restart FHEM:
Code:
define telnetPort telnet 7072 global

If you are using this addon with an Homematic CCU you need a system variable with a value list
Code:
Unknown;Start;Shutdown;Audio playback start;Video playback start;Audio playback stop;Video playback stop;Audio playback pause;Video playback pause

Download
The addon is distributed in the official XBMC addon repository. If you want to get the latest version earlier, you can also install my dedicated repository, since usually it takes a few days before the update is included into the official repository: The YeaSoft Repository

I've tried, but it does not seem to work.

I'm using port 8083 and using the command from FHEM's commandref to turn on/Off lights, but it does nothing.
Something like "set switch1 on".

Can you suggest me where to look to solve the problem?

Thanks

Since you are using the Port 8083, I suppose that you are trying to send the commands to the port on which FHEM offers the web interface. This is wrong. The commands must be sent to the port where FHEM offers the telnet commandline interface, and this is generally 7072.

You can check it in the FHEM configuration file. Search for the following configuration part:

Code:
define telnetPort telnet 7072 global

If you have not defined a telnet port in your FHEM installation, you should add it to the configuration and restart FHEM. I added this information also to the initial post.

Does it still works under Kodi?

Is there a plan to add password support for this plugin?
I am using FHEM's telnet port with password-protection and SSL. With this configuration this plugin does not work. There's no possibility to provide a password, or did I miss something?

Very useful Script for my homematic system.

My Problem is, sometimes on startup the script crashed.

While my settings were not running too, so I have made some tests (rPi whith Kodi and CCU2). Here the results: You cannot use an IP as CCU-host, use the host's name instead.
It would be nice someone could fix this - or at least place an hint in the documentation.

Im not familiar with python. Here the line of addon.py where it fails:
Code:
connection = httplib.HTTPConnection(hostname,8181,timeout=10)

Hey everyone, I just started with FHEM an I have a backlight working on FHEM. Is there a step by step tutorial for this App I didn't understand what I have to do in FHEM / Kodi...

Kodi runs on an Rasperry Pi an FHEM runs on another Pi

/And here I thought my Python coding for MQTT to do the same was archaic.
