Openhab Skill

Provides control of smart devices connected to an openHAB server running on the same network.
The skill provides the functionality to control Lighting, Thermostat, Current Temperature, and Homekit devices attached to an openHAB server. TPLink and Belkin devices may also be discovered on the network via skill and device names may be updated.
How to Use
First, make your request:
Say “Hey Neon” if you are in the wake words mode.
For example:
  • "list my home control items"
  • "refresh my home control devices
  • "turn on desk lamp"
  • "dim room light to 20 percent"
  • “toggle desk outlet”
  • “rename desk outlet to space heater”
Secondly, the action will execute and Neon will speak a confirmation.
If there is an error connecting to the openHAB server, there will be a spoken error. If the device requested does not exist and wake words are enabled, there will be a spoken error. If the failed request worked previously, please refer to Troubleshooting
    Hey Neon, dim the desk lamp to 10 percent
    >> Dimming desk lamp
OpenHAB can optionally be installed when Neon is installed, otherwise openHAB can be installed manually.
cd ${ngiDir}
. ./
Alternatively, Neon can be configured to connect to an openHAB server running on the network by modifying ngi_local_conf.yml
  openhabPort: 8080
  openhabConf: /etc/openhab2
Click to expand.

sudo systemctl restart openhab2.service
if you installed openHAB as described above.
