Velbus

Velbus is a wired home automation systems from Velleman.

The Velbus plugin supports a range of Velbus modules. At startup of the plugin it will scan the Velbus for connected modules. All supported modules are automatically added to DomotiGa if the Auto Device Create feature is enabled.

To connect Velbus to DomotiGa you need a VMB1USB (confirmed to work) which presents itself in Linux as a ttyACM device. The VMBRSUSB or VMB1RS should work as well but has not been confirmed to work with DomotiGa.

DomotiGa only supports controlling the listed modules. Configuring Velbus modules has to be done using the Velbus Link software. You can enable the relay port in DomotiGa to allow the Velbus link software to connect to the Velbus infrastructure via DomotiGa over TCP.
