Tellstick: Not Connected

Post by UlfG » Wed Jan 03, 2018 10:43 pm

I installed OpenNethome server on my raspberry running Jessie according to instructions here:
http://nethomeserver.blogspot.se/2014/0 ... ation.html

I have connected a Tellstick Duo to one of the USB-ports. However, in OpenNetHome server
it says: Tellstick: Not connected in the list of Hardware. Pressing reconnect makes no difference.
The log says:
18.01.03 23:20:02 Tellstick failed to open serial port to Tellstick: /dev/ttyUSB0
18.01.03 23:20:02 TellstickPort$SerialDevice Failed to find COM Port: /dev/ttyUSB0

When I look at the properties of the Tellstick, there is only one Com port to choose from,
the /dev/ttyUSB0.

However, I also installed Telldus core and Telldus Center on the Raspberry, and from there
the Tellstick is fully functional, I can connect a Nexa device to it and control the device from Telldus Center.

Another thing that might need to be pointed out is that the Tellstick is not the only USB device that is
connected, I also have a 1-Wire USB adapter connected to the Raspberry. Possibly this causes some
confusion..?

How can I make this work? When I tried to add a new Tellstick device, the only COM port available
to choose from was COM14. That does not seem reasonable on a Pi...

Hmm, this usually works right out of the box... I can see two possible causes of problems:
1. You may have to unplug and then replug the Tellstick after having installed OpenNetHome, so the device driver is properly loaded.
2. Telldus installs another kind of driver for Tellstick, which is not compatible with the serial port driver that OpenNetHome uses, so you cannot have Telldus center installed when you want to use OpenNetHome - they cannot work at the same time.

Hope this helps

OK, so it was a pity that I cannot have both OpenNetHome and Telldus Center at the same time. I really want Telldus becuase it gives
the possibility for remote access through Telldus live and a mobile app. But I would also like to use OpenNetHome because of it's higher
level/web oriented API and the possibility for easy setup of timers, rules etc. Since I really want the remote access I will keep Telldus Center,
and try to find some other web-oriented tool similar to OpenNetHome.

Perhaps it is possible that somebody could recommend some other tool that either can coexist with Telldus, or has it's own
remote access method, but is otherwise somewhat similar to OpenNetHome? It is also a pity that remote access is not
available through OpenNetHome.
