Hi,

FYI - I think until now eq3 did not translated this into english.

But did you checked the Add-on?
https://github.com/hobbyquaker/XML-API.

What I found for the extrnal Smart Home Automation System - Home Assistant - here somebody translated/included some points:
https://home-assistant.io/components/homematic/

But we should discuss the details of XML-API in a "new/other" thread to not mix topics.

Regards

Thomas

What I'm missing is (and actually blocking from use), in order of priority:
HomeMatic WebUI Handbuch
HomeMatic Skript Teil 1 Sprachbeschreibung
HomeMatic XML-RPC-Schnittstelle
Complete absence of tutorials also does not appear inviting for newbies

And I cant find any of those documents in English :(

Country: Slovakia

Ordering from amazon.de

Homematic-ip :

+ ease of setup and use.
+ fair price for components.
+ wireless (no space for additional cabling)
+ must support radiator valves
+ easily programmable

- no web UI
- small automation possibilities via mobile app

Country : Austria

Device : Homematic CCU2

I'm actually from Croatia but moved to Austria 4 years ago. My german is already rather good for everyday use but writing (especially for technical purposes like here) is still preferred in english ;)

PROS:

- modularity , the fact you can find any device for almost any use or combination
- radio / cable operated - really not a fan of IP / network solutions and prefer stuff that works even if internet goes out
- open source - the amount of scripts and workaround solutions I've seen from other users is incredible
- very reliable - so far in 2 years not a single glitch in operation, even without regular updating

CONS:

- lack of documentation - must be hard even for native german users , for me it was crazy in the beginning

CCU / RaspberryMatic / WebUI /Script ... documentation there were some EN project updates that can be find here:
viewtopic.php?f=49&t=45485

Latest "Homematic IP Cloud Access Point" User Guide can always be found here:
https://www.eq-3.com/Downloads/eq3/down ... -Guide.pdf

For Automation of "Homematic IP Cloud Access Point" you can use "Conrad Connect" or external Home Automaton Hub "Home Assistant"

It would be good to hear if there are some new HM users - leave a short message here. ;-)

Also I added on the first page the Google Map User Overview Link
It would be MEGA Cool if you would Add your city / country (Street not necessary) in this thread to see on google maps outside german speaking region where useres located:

Country: Italy

I choose HmIP after many investigation as I wanted an affordable system, open to customization and reading in google (with help of Google translator as most of the info were in German) this seemed to be the right one; then I've found a very food price on Amazon.IT and I buy it to install and test it in a portion of my house (1 floor out of 3) with the safety net that I coudl have had returned to Amazon for full refound in case it was not fitting my needs. Long story short I liked it, it integrates quite flawlessly with my HASSIO server and i bought all the missing valves to complete my system; so far it's running quite ok, WAF is great and I'm waiting end of winter to make some comparison in gas consumption to asses the ROI of the system!
