This repository hosts the reference implementation for the OSGi EnOcean Device Service specification, that has been originally implemented and contributed by Orange and is a sub-project of Eclipse SmartHome. The specification is officially a chapter of OSGi Release 6 Residential specification ( The implementation of an OSGi Device Service specification is called an OSGi base driver. A base driver simplifies the development of applications controlling devices of a specific protocol, here the EnOcean standard radio technology (

Functional and technical descriptions:

  • The OSGi EnOcean Base Driver enables applications running on an OSGi software platform to discover and control EnOcean devices. EnOcean is a radio protocol used in Smart Home and Building markets. OSGi is an execution environment above Java virtual machine to run modular applications.

  • The OSGi EnOcean Base Driver implements OSGi standard specification entitled EnOcean Device Service. OSGi EnOcean Device Service specification defines the Java API to discover and control EnOcean devices on the OSGi platform and according to OSGi service design patterns. This API maps the representation model of EnOcean entities defined by EnOcean Equipment Profiles standard into Java classes. OSGi service design patterns are used on the one hand for dynamic discovery, control and eventing of local and networked devices and on the other hand for dynamic network advertising and control of local OSGi services.

  • The EnOcean Base Driver is entirely written in Java and uses serial communication drivers usually available on common OS, e.g., Linux. To work properly, the software needs to be installed on an OSGi platform R4 v4.0 (and above) running on a JVM 1.4 (and above) with RXTX Java library. It runs above Linux systems connected to an EnOcean TCM300 USB Gateway delivered as an internal chip or a USB dongle.

Quick Start

  • Get the code (e.g. in Eclipse).
  • Compile it (via bnd).
  • Get Apache Felix (e.g. version 4.4.1).
  • Add the following bundles in the "bundle" folder of Felix:
g! lb
   ID|State      |Level|Name
    0|Active     |    0|System Bundle (4.4.1)
    1|Active     |    1|org.eclipse.smarthome.protocols.enocean.eeps.basic (0.9.0)
    2|Active     |    1|org.eclipse.smarthome.protocols.enocean.basedriver.impl (0.9.0)
    3|Active     |    1|org.eclipse.smarthome.protocols.enocean.sample.client (0.9.0)
    4|Active     |    1|Apache Felix Bundle Repository (2.0.2)
    5|Active     |    1|Apache Felix EventAdmin (1.3.2)
    6|Active     |    1|Apache Felix Gogo Command (0.14.0)
    7|Active     |    1|Apache Felix Gogo Runtime (0.12.1)
    8|Active     |    1|Apache Felix Gogo Shell (0.10.0)
    9|Active     |    1|org.osgi:org.osgi.service.enocean (
   10|Active     |    1|osgi.cmpn (
   11|Active     |    1|driver-rx-tx (0.0.0) - driver-rx-tx.jar

  • Start Felix.
