Install on Raspberry Pi

There's no binary distribution for the armht CPU architecture, but it's quite simple to install from source.Raspberry Pi Tellstick instruction

For the Raspberry Pi 2, you can go ahead with the "normal" installation as decribed above, no compilation from source needed.


All configuration is stored in /etc/tellstick.conf. Example:

user = "nobody"
group = "plugdev"
deviceNode = "/dev/tellstick"
ignoreControllerConfirmation = "false"
controller {
  id = 1
  # name = ""
  type = 1
  serial = "xxxxxxxx"
device {
  id = 1
  name = "WallWart1"
  controller = 0
  protocol = "arctech"
  model = "selflearning-switch"
  parameters {
    # devices = ""
    house = "12345678"
    unit = "1"
    # code = ""
    # system = ""
    # units = ""
    # fade = ""

Devices are picked up by the software and will be visible in
