Freebox Binding

This binding integrates the Freebox Revolution to your openHab installation.

Supported Things

This binding supports the following thing types:

Thing Thing Type Description
server Bridge The Freebox Revolution Server.
phone Thing The phone wired to the Freebox Revolution.
net_device Thing A network device on the local network.
net_interface Thing A network interface from a device on the local network.
airplay Thing An AirPlay device in the local network.

Discovery

The Freebox Revolution server is discovered automatically through mDNS in the local network. After a Freebox Revolution is discovered and available to openHAB, the binding will automatically discover phone, network devices / interfaces and AirPlay devices with video capability in the local network. Note that the discovered thing will be setup to use only HTTP API (and not HTTPS) because only an IP can be automatically determined while a domain name is required to use HTTPS with a valid certificate.

Binding configuration

The binding has the following configuration options, which can be set for “binding:freebox”:

Parameter Name Description Required
callbackUrl Callback URL URL to use for playing notification sounds, e.g. http://192.168.0.2:8080 no

Thing Configuration

Server

The server bridge thing requires the following configuration parameters:

Parameter Label Parameter ID Description Required Default
Freebox Network Address fqdn The IP address / FQDN of the Freebox Server (can include port number). false mafreebox.freebox.fr
Application token appToken Token generated by the Freebox Server. false  
Refresh Interval refreshInterval The refresh interval in seconds which is used to poll given Freebox Server. false 30
Use only HTTP API useOnlyHttp Use HTTP API even if HTTPS is available. false false

If the parameter ipAddress is not set, the binding will use the default address used by Free to access your Freebox Server (mafreebox.freebox.fr). The bridge thing will initialize only if a valid application token (parameter appToken) is filled.

Phone

The phone thing requires the following configuration parameters:

Parameter Label Parameter ID Description Required Default
Phone State Refresh Interval refreshPhoneInterval The refresh interval in seconds which is used to poll given Freebox Server for phone state. false 2
Phone Calls Refresh Interval refreshPhoneCallsInterval The refresh interval in seconds which is used to poll given Freebox Server for phone calls. false 60

Network device

The net_device thing requires the following configuration parameters:

Parameter Label Parameter ID Description Required  
MAC Address macAddress The MAC address of the network device. true  

Network interface

The net_interface thing requires the following configuration parameters:

Parameter Label Parameter ID Description Required
IP Address ipAddress The IP address (v4 or v6) of the network interface. true

AirPlay device

The airplay thing requires the following configuration parameters:

Parameter Label Parameter ID Description Required
Name name Name of the AirPlay device true
Password password AirPlay password false
Accept all MP3 acceptAllMp3 Accept any bitrate for MP3 audio or only bitrates greater than 64 kbps false

HTTPS Access

Each Freebox server is now automatically assigned a random domain name (in addition to mafreebox.freebox.fr that can be used inside the local network), and an associated TLS certificate to enable secure access to API. This certificate is also valid for the domain name mafreebox.freebox.fr too. You must validate the certificate chain, by using the following Freebox ECC Root CA and Freebox RSA Root CA:

-----END CERTIFICATE-----

First copy and paste on your server running openHAB these two public certificates in 2 files named for example /freeboxECC.crt and /freeboxRSA.crt. Then you have to import these two certificate as trusted public certificate for your installed Java Runtime Environment. On Linux server, the command is:

sudo keytool -import -trustcacerts -file /freeboxECC.crt -alias Freebox -keystore $JAVA_HOME/jre/lib/security/cacerts
sudo keytool -import -trustcacerts -file /freeboxRSA.crt -alias Freebox -keystore $JAVA_HOME/jre/lib/security/cacerts
sudo rm /freeboxECC.crt /freeboxRSA.crt

Authentication

You’ll have to authorise openHAB to connect to your Freebox. Here is the process described :

Step 1 At binding startup, if no token is recorded in the Freebox Server (bridge) configuration, the following message will be displayed in the OSGi console :

            ####################################################################
            # Please accept activation request directly on your freebox        #
            # Once done, record Apptoken in the Freebox Item configuration     #
            # bEK7a7O8GkxxxxxxxxxxXBsKu/xxxttttwj5bXSssd5gUvSXs4vrpuhZwelEo804 #
            ####################################################################

Step 2 Run to your Freebox and approve the pairing request for openHAB Freebox Binding that is displayed on the Freebox screen

Step 3 Record the apptoken in the Freebox Server (bridge) configuration

Optionally you can log in your Freebox admin console to allocate needed rights to openhab

Once initialized, the thing will generate all available channels.

Example

Things

Here is an example with minimal configuration parameters (using default values). It will first connect to mafreebox.freebox.fr using HTTPS (and will failback to HTTP if HTTPS access is not available).

Bridge freebox:server:fb "Freebox Revolution" [ appToken="xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx" ] {
    Thing phone Phone "Phone"
    Thing net_device tv1 "TV living room" [ macAddress="XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX" ]
    Thing net_interface tv2 "TV bedroom" [ ipAddress="192.168.0.100" ]
    Thing airplay player "Freebox Player (AirPlay)" [ name="Freebox Player" ]
}

Here is another example overwritting default configuration parameters:

Bridge freebox:server:fb "Freebox Revolution" [ fqdn="abcdefgh.fbxos.fr", appToken="xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx", refreshInterval=20, useOnlyHttp=false ] {
    Thing phone Phone "Phone" [ refreshPhoneInterval=10, refreshPhoneCallsInterval=120 ]
    Thing net_device tv1 "TV living room" [ macAddress="XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX" ]
    Thing net_interface tv2 "TV bedroom" [ ipAddress="192.168.0.100" ]
    Thing airplay player "Freebox Player (AirPlay)" [ name="Freebox Player", password="1111", acceptAllMp3=false ]
}
