# EnOcean BLE Binding

This binding adds support for the EnOcean BLE PTM215B (opens new window) rocker.

Currently, it does not work with the BlueZ Binding (opens new window). The recommended / tested Bluetooth bridge binding is the BlueGiga Binding (opens new window).

# Supported Things

Only a single thing type is added by this extension:

Thing Type ID Description
ptm215b The EnOcean PTM 215B Rocker

These rockers are battery-less, the necessary energy for the BLE transmission is generated by the button click itself and completely depleted after 3 attempts of a "fire & forget" (unidirectional) BLE transmission. This means, the rockers are only "on" during the button click, so there is no possibility for openHAB to actively retrieve the online status. Therefore, initial online status will always be "UNKNOWN" until the rocker is used.

# Discovery

As any other Bluetooth device, EnOcean BLE rockers are discovered automatically by the corresponding bridge. It's necessary to click any button of the rocker up to 15 times in quick succession to get it discovered.

# Thing Configuration

There is only a single configuration parameter address, which corresponds to the Bluetooth address of the device (in format "XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX"). Normally, the address is printed on the back of the rocker.

# Channels

An EnOcean PTM 215B Rocker has the following channels:

Channel ID Item Type Description
rocker1 system.rawrocker In case of a dual rocker, the first rocker. In case of a single rocker, usually this channel has to be used. Anyhow, it depends from the implementation of the manufacturer of the rocker, so it could be that events are coming in on the second rocker channel.
rocker2 system.rawrocker In case of a dual rocker, the second rocker.
