SHELLY 2.5 WITH MQTT PROTOCOL

Shelly 2.5 relay function

INTRODUCTION

This Shelly 2.5 device is made to control 2 separate lights channel and to control a shutter motor. This guide will explain how to set both of the two functions that this device is capable of.

Web interface configurations

Step 1:

Connect to the shelly device hot spot and get inside its web interface by typing the default IP address 192.168.33.1Get inside the internet security setting then wifi mode client and check the box connect the shelly device to an existing WIFI network.
Put your wifi credential inside the text boxes.

Step 2:

Now enable the MQTT protocol on the shelly device. Head to the internet and configuration settings and enable the “Enable action execution via MQTT” check box.

It will be needed to insert the EVE Server IP address inisde the “Server” text box.

Step 3:

Open the Home automation software EVE Manger Pro, create a new MQTT gateway inside the gateway section. Insert the EVE Server IP address inside the “address” text field, them set the QoS towo exactly one.

Step 4:

In order to set up the topic you must set the switch component’s gateway to the MQTT one we created earlier.

Step 5:

Now in order to set up the topics properly change the switch’s gateway settings to be able to insert its MQTT configurations.

Step 6:

This is how the components works inside the classic user interface, and how the topics looks like when crossing the server broker.

Shelly 2.5 Roller shutter function 

INTRODUCTION

Shelly 2.5 has a second function out of commanding two separate actuators, infact this device from shelly can control even a roller shutter.

Web interface configurations

Step 1.1:

First this we are going to do is switch the relay function of the shelly device to the roller one to be able to control a shutter component. From inside the shelly 2.5 web interface, enter the settings menu and click the second check box inside the “device type” section.

Step 1.2:

Drag and drop the shutter component from the basic components menu inside the component area, then change its gateway to the MQTT one.

Step 1.3:

The topics in this case are designed to perform a specific function, as you can see from the image below the script will get the status from the device and “translate” the value in both ways.

Inside the EVE system the values that are used on the shutter component are 1, 2, 3 (open, stop, close).

Slider component configuration to set the opening percentage to the shutter

Step 1.4:

Now lets set up the slider that will allow you to choose a specific persentage which the shelly device will set the roller shutter to. Add a slider component inside the components area, set its gateway to MQTT.

And put the script inside the right topics.

Scenario configuration for the shutter calbiration 

Step 1.5:

The shelly 2.5 accept a command via MQTT to calibrate the shutter directly from an MQTT command. In our case the command will be send by a Scenario set up with the MQTT protocol and the right topic configuration as shown below.

Step 1.6:

Now lets try it, add the shutter component inside the user interface and and try to open, close and stop the shutter.
