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.

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 and network devices / interfaces on the local network.

Binding configuration

There are no overall binding configuration settings that need to be set. All settings are through thing configuration parameters.

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

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

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):

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" ]
}

Here is another example overwritting default configuration parameters:

Bridge freebox:server:fb "Freebox Revolution" [ fqdn="192.168.0.254", appToken="xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx", refreshInterval=20 ] {
    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" ]
}
