What we do

I believe you have already installed OpenHAB on your Raspberry Pi and also configured your Home Automation Server (OpenHAB) properly. Is this right to you? 🙂 

 

Then as next step, we should integrate RFM Gateway to your Raspberry Pi so that Home Automation Server can receive packets via RFM Gateway! 

 

If not, please click the below button to see how to install and configure Home Automation Server on your Raspberry Pi.

How we do (Hardware)

We need to connect RFM69 module and Raspberry Pi. 

It might depends on what kind of Raspberry Pi you have, but here i would like to explain with Raspberry Pi 2 Model B.

 

How we do (Software)

Please note that if you buy the kit, the included micro SD card has already pre-made image in it.

so you don't need to do anything. just insert it and play.

 

However, if not or you want to follow steps and learn how software parts works,

please find the enclosed documents or instruction for further details.

 


 

  • Sneak peek on Software part

 

First of all, you should prepare Raspberry Pi.

Please click these buttons to look into other posts for prerequisite learnings.

 

Prepare RaspberryPi

 

Once your Raspberry Pi is ready,

 

1. Connect the RFM69 to the Raspberry PI
2. Install Git core
3. Download WiringPi
4. Build WiringPi
5. Setup SPI interface, using raspi-config
6. Install Mosquitto and the development libraries
7. Clone the gateway
8. Compile the gateway
9. Launch the gateway
10. Install Daemon
