Attention: openHAB 2.0 documentation page

ℹ Please find all documentation for openHAB 2 under http://docs.openhab.org.

The wiki page here contains (outdated) documentation for the older openHAB 1.x version. Please be aware that a lot of core details changed with openHAB 2.0 and this wiki as well as all tutorials found for openHAB 1.x might be misleading. Check http://docs.openhab.org for more details and consult the community forum for all remaining questions.

Introduction to setting up openHAB 1.x

openHAB is a highly configurable and very versatile Home Automation solution.

Though it does have a bit of a learning curve, it is worth the time and effort required. Whilst it can be very quick to setup if you know what you are doing. It is recommended you browse this wiki, visit the community forum and watch a talk or two to get a good idea of what you will be installing before you actually do.

After installation, you then continue to Configuring-the-openHAB-runtime

Problems?

Please refer to the openHAB Community Forum if you are stuck, need help or have any requests or ideas. Github Issues are for bug reports.

Though as is good practice on any community, please use the search button before blindly posting a question. As chances are, your question has been asked (and answered) before.

Don't forget to be polite, remembering that the people who make openHAB are doing so for free :)

Have fun with openHAB!
