This repository serves vendor specific configuration files for ebusd:


WARNING: There is absolutely no warranty at all for using any of the files provided here and you should definitely know what you're doing.

Otherwise: keep your hands off!!!

Usage with ebusd version 3.2 or higher

If you're using ebusd in version 3.2 or higher, you can simply use the default option for the location of the configuration files that are served by ebusd.eu (see "--configpath" option). Due to this new feature, no more packaged releases of this repository will be generated in future. If you intend to work on the configuration yourself, simply checkout this repository and point ebusd to your local folder with the latest version.

Installation on up-to-date ebusd (2.0 or higher)

If you're on a Debian system, simply pick the latest configuration release and install it in your preferred language, or follow the hint below in order to get the most up-to-date files by checking out this repository.
For other OS's, the latest release also contains a tgz for easy copying to your /etc/ebusd directory.

Important hint: In order to get the most up-to-date configuration files, simply checkout this repository and link the ebusd-2.1.x/de or ebusd-2.1.x/en folder to /etc/ebusd. On the command line you'd have to execute the following steps:

git clone https://github.com/john30/ebusd-configuration.git
if [ -d /etc/ebusd ]; then sudo mv /etc/ebusd /etc/ebusd.old; fi
sudo ln -s $PWD/ebusd-configuration/ebusd-2.1.x/de /etc/ebusd

Starting with ebusd 2.0, the daemon is able to pick the right configuration files for your devices when started with the --scanconfig parameter and when using CSV files from either the ebusd-2.1.x/de or the ebusd-2.1.x/en directory.

For each seen device on the bus, ebusd will pick the best suiting file from the manufacturer subdirectory after reading the device's identification.

The CSV file is picked from the manufacturer directory by using the slave address (the two hex digits prefix of the CSV file name), the identification part converted to lower case and with spaces removed (and also trailing "0" removed up to two times, the next part of the CSV file name between dots), and optionally by software and/or hardware version number (when the CSV file name contains a ".HWvvvv" or ".SWvvvv" part).

So, e.g. for the scan result
which is slave address 0x08, manufacturer 0xB5 (=Vaillant), identification "EHP00", software version "03.27" and hardware version "72.01", ebusd will load the file vaillant/08.ehp.csv (from either ebusd-2.1.x/de or ebusd-2.1.x/en used as configuration directory).

Installation on older ebusd (until 1.3)

The right files for an existing environment need to be picked from the directory corresponding to the used ebusd version (currently ebusd-1.x.x for the ebusd master branch).

For all environments, the best way to find the necessary files is to start a scan on the eBUS, see ebusd scan documentation.

Depending on the scan result, pick the files suitable for your environment from the names given by the third column of the scan result, e.g.:

15;Vaillant;UI ;0501;6201

For this scan result, pick the following files from the vendor directory (second column) with your language preference:


In order to use these files, the "_templates.csv" file is required as well (if available in the vendor directory).

Please note: due to a corrected data type in the _templates.csv for vaillant_de, at least ebusd 1.3.0 is required to use these files.

Some devices share the same prefix (e.g. "ehp.*"). This is due to the fact that the same physical unit can contain several circuits. Here is a list of suffixes used and the corresponding circuits:

  • ".bc": burner circuit
  • ".hc": heating circuit
  • ".mc": mixer circuit
  • ".hwc": hot water circuit
  • ".cc": circulation circuit
  • ".sc": solar circuit

Mixers and room controllers usually are available for more than one heating circuit. If so, these files are available multiple times with the heating circuit number appended, e.g. "mc2.4.csv" for heating circuit 4. For the primary heating circuit the number is not appended, though.

For some devices, there are several variants of the same circuit. For example, the mixer might be available as fix value or real mixer circuit. Variants for the same device are indicated by a suffix starting with an underscore "_" and only one variant can be picked from those.
