I have started work on an alpha version of a binding to integrate emby and openHAB. Right now the binding does not incorporate control but that is planned for the future.

Press play on Emby and dim or turn off the lights, press pause and turn them back on a gain etc. I do this with Kodi (emby pluggin) and with my rules it only does this when its night time.

Yes thanks for posting. I had been using the web hooks plugin to send this info to openhab but that stopped working for some reason so I started work on the binding so that it could grab the info. And this is exactly the idea. I also have it setup to create the image urls for the media that is playing so you can grab artwork. I use this on a tablet that is mounted on a wall in our den that also cycles through security cameras and has dashboards for control of the rest of the lights and functions in our house. I plan to expand the binding to allow for control of playback as well.

This is great.  I'm deep into OpenHAB right now and although some feel that things like Emby is not relevant, I 100% think it is.  It's the argument between what is Home Automation and what is a Smart Home. I'm not just about automating things to happen, I want everything to be integrated and in a single place.  After all, a big part of OpenHAB is their sitemap, which to me is basically a super remote control of everything so why wouldn't it make sense to have multimedia aspects as part of it.  One part I really want is to be able to play my music in Emby on my Sonos speakers thru OpenHAB and Alexa.

 

Thanks.

This is great - one thing stopping me from moving to Emby (from PLEX) was the lack of OpenHAB integration.

 

Having my lights dim when the movie starts is part of the experience we're very used to. Having the lights come up to 20% when we hit pause is also nice.
