    And currently I am working on a new update.
    This version will support Bticino CEN-commands (from MH200, MH202) and scenarios from F420 scenario module.
    And the piCino will be upgraded to the new openHAB version.

    Everything is already finished and tested. The last thing which is missing is a function to update the piCino hardware via online-update. The online-update of the piCino is more work than expected. I hope I can release the new update in the next 1-2 month.

    Here is a screenshot from new piCinoBuilder V2.1 (not available yet):

    Clients will be informed via e-mail on new updates. And I will try to post it in this forum.
    I’m still working on the online update (the picino has no update functionality right now and I have to implement it so that existing picinos can also do the update). But after finishing the update I will release the new version.

    But I have good news:
    We have already picinos successfully installed in Italy and Spain and they are working with Italian and Spanish language 🙂
    So at this time we have successfully operating the picino in: German, English, Italian and Spanish (with Amazon Alexa).
    And I think it will work on any language that Alexa (or other voice-assistants) will understand.

    We finally finished our new update 1905 for the picino!

    With this update openHAB is updated to the newest release on the picino. And we implemented CEN-support (to control MH200/MH202 commands) and scenario-module (F420) support. And the piCino gets an autoupdate-function, so that new important releases will be installed automatically.

    All infos how to get and install the update, you can find on our homepage in the download-section.
    And I attached the infos here, too: see this update-PDF

    The new piCinoBuilder software V2.4 is released too on our homepage.

    @ayman:

    Yes, it would be possible to voice-control the bticino-music-system or door-entry-system with the picino. But with limitations and not directly. So you cannot add this items to the picino-configurator directly. You can only control lighting, dimmers, scenes and shutters directly. But for all other bticino devices, we added CEN-commands in our last version.

    So you have to create CEN-commands with your bticino-software (myhome suite) for these things which you want to control.
    For example:
    – create CEN-command on virtual address 10.15 key 01 for music volume up 10%
    – create 10.15 key 02 for music volume down
    – create 10.15 key 03 for change music source

    After that you can add these CEN-commands 10.15 key 01, 02, 03, … to the picino and assign them a voice command.
    When you speak the voice-command the assigned CEN-command will be executed.

    I know that’s not that comfortable because you have to configure these things twice (in myhome suite and in the picinoBuilder) but with the CEN-commands you have no limits and you can controll everything (which is possible via CEN).

    Of course you have to have a scenario-module like MH200, MH202 to create CEN-commands.

     

    All infos about pricing etc. you can find on our homepage http://picino.net. For shipping cost just contact me via contact form on our homepage and tell me your country.
