openHAB - Tilt Bricklet

Bemerkung

Zur Zeit ist nur die englische openHAB-Dokumentation verfügbar.

This is the description of the openHAB API bindings for the Tilt Bricklet. General information and technical specifications for the Tilt Bricklet are summarized in its hardware description.

An installation guide for the openHAB API bindings is part of their general description.

Channels

Tilted

The current tilt state. Enabled if tilted, disabled if closed or vibrating.

Type:
  • Switch
UID:
  • tinkerforge:bricklettilt:[UID]:BrickletTiltTilted
Read only:
  • No
Vibrating

The current vibration state. Enabled if vibration is detected, disabled if not. Vibration can only be detected if the bricklet is not tilted.

Type:
  • Switch
UID:
  • tinkerforge:bricklettilt:[UID]:BrickletTiltVibrating
Read only:
  • No

Actions

Actions can be used in rules by creating an action object. All actions return a Map<String, Object>. Returned values can be accessed by name, sometimes the type deduction needs some hints, as shown below:

val actions = getActions("tinkerforge", "tinkerforge:bricklettilt:[UID]")
val hwVersion = actions.brickletTiltGetIdentity().get("hardwareVersion") as short[]
logInfo("Example", "Hardware version: " + hwVersion.get(0) + "." + hwVersion.get(1) + "." + hwVersion.get(2))

Basic Actions

brickletTiltGetTiltState()
Return Map:
  • state – Type: short, Range: See constants

Returns the current tilt state. The state can either be

  • 0 = Closed: The ball in the tilt switch closes the circuit.
  • 1 = Open: The ball in the tilt switch does not close the circuit.
  • 2 = Closed Vibrating: The tilt switch is in motion (rapid change between open and close).
Tilt states

The following constants are available for this function:

For state:

  • val TILT_STATE_CLOSED = 0
  • val TILT_STATE_OPEN = 1
  • val TILT_STATE_CLOSED_VIBRATING = 2

Advanced Actions

brickletTiltGetIdentity()
Return Map:
  • uid – Type: String, Length: up to 8
  • connectedUid – Type: String, Length: up to 8
  • position – Type: char, Range: ['a' to 'h', 'i', 'z']
  • hardwareVersion – Type: short[], Length: 3
    • 0: major – Type: short, Range: [0 to 255]
    • 1: minor – Type: short, Range: [0 to 255]
    • 2: revision – Type: short, Range: [0 to 255]
  • firmwareVersion – Type: short[], Length: 3
    • 0: major – Type: short, Range: [0 to 255]
    • 1: minor – Type: short, Range: [0 to 255]
    • 2: revision – Type: short, Range: [0 to 255]
  • deviceIdentifier – Type: int, Range: [0 to 216 - 1]

Returns the UID, the UID where the Bricklet is connected to, the position, the hardware and firmware version as well as the device identifier.

The position can be 'a', 'b', 'c', 'd', 'e', 'f', 'g' or 'h' (Bricklet Port). The Raspberry Pi HAT (Zero) Brick is always at position 'i' and the Bricklet connected to an Isolator Bricklet is always as position 'z'.
