In this OpenHAB 2 Basics – Sitemaps and User Interfaces video, I’ll show you how to create your own Basic UI interface for openHAB 2. I’ll show you how each Sitemap element is defined and how it looks in the completed user interface, and I’ll show you how sitemap elements can be modified with mappings, visibility or color modifiers. After watching this video and the rest of the openHAB 2 Basics series, you should be ready to create your own home automation user interface in openHAB.
In this new series, I’ll take you through the entire process from starting up with openHAB, to developing advanced rules and home automation functionality. Keep an eye out for future videos and subscribe to my channel!
