Set up a HomeMatic hardware layer. At the moment we don’t support hmIP, but that is in progress. For learning and handling devices use our internal HomeMatic panel and services (in progress) or use Homematic-Manager > 2.0.

The logic layer will be Home-Assistant. There is no ReGa or other logic layer installed. You can’t import an existing configuration, you’ll need re-learn it into Home-Assistant.

Follow devices will be supported and tested:

  "rf_enable": true,
  "rf": [
      "type": "CCU2",
      "device": "/dev/ttyAMA0"
  "wired_enable": false,
  "wired": [
      "serial": "xy",
      "key": "abc",
      "ip": ""

Configuration variables:

  • rf_enable (Require): Boolean. Enable or disable BidCoS-RF.
  • wired_enable (Require): Boolean. Enable or disable BidCoS-Wired.

For RF devices

  • type (Require): Device type for RFD service. Look into the manual of your device.
  • device (Require): Device on the host.

For RF devices

  • serial (Require): Serial number of the device.
  • key (Require): Encrypted key.
  • ip (Require): IP address of LAN gateway.

Home Assistant configuration

Use the following configuration in Home Assistant to use it:

      host: core-homematic
      port: 2001
