Connecting Jablotron with OpenHAB

Connecting Jablotron with OpenHAB

In this article we will show you how to install Jablotron binding in OpenHAB. This binding helps us to synchronize states from Jablotron alarm to OpenHAB. Typically, you can force to switch off lights, close water pipe and circulation, switch off sockets or whatever you want to do when you leave home and set alarm.


Jablotron Alarm JA-80/JA-100/JA-100F

Pi-Home - see the How to in Smart Home section



Tutorial is very easy. Original shorter tutorial you can find on OpenHAB Community:

  1. Download latest binding for Jablotron (March 2021 is 2.5.11)
  2. Copy the .jar file to the shared folder on your OpenHAB under openhab-conf/openhab-addons/
  3. Open Paper UI and manually add new Thing, choose Jablotron Binding and then Jablotron bridge

Fill login information to your Jablotron Cloud. After save, you should see the new things under Inboxu section. If you have more locations, you will see more things. Add thing you want.

You can pair the thing events as alarm state, last alarm date, etc. with your items in OpenHAB (see below). Then you can create rules which can react to the states of your items and provide defined actions.

Below, you can find very simple example of jablotron.items and jablotron.rules (under items and rules folders respectively). When alarm is set, rule set "AwayHome" state to "ON" which has many other actions in OpenHAB for various items.  


String AlarmDum "Alarm dum"
String AlarmZahrada "Alarm zahrada" 


rule "Alarm Jablotron"
 Item AlarmDum changed
 if(AlarmDum.state == "set"){    
 sendCommand(AwayHome, ON)
 if(AlarmDum.state == "unset"){    
 sendCommand(AwayHome, OFF)
 if(AlarmDum.state == "partialSet"){    
 sendCommand(AwayHome, OFF)
