No controller with the given MAC address was found


I’ve set up a Raspberry Pi as directed here, although I’ve used the latest version ‘RASPBIAN STRETCH LITE’.

I’ve installed OpenRemote Controller version 2.6.0 beta 3, from here.

OR seems to start without issue. In openremote/logs/boot.log, I see:

INFO 2018-03-03 17:11:38,963 : Initialized event processor : Drools Rule Engine
INFO 2018-03-03 17:11:38,964 : Initialized event processor : RRD4J Data Logger
INFO 2018-03-03 17:11:38,990 : Beehive command checking service disabled
INFO 2018-03-03 17:11:38,991 : Startup complete.
INFO 2018-03-03 17:11:38,991 :

I’ve been able to add the controller. Firstly, I setup Raspbian Jessie, repeated my previous steps which resulted in the same issue, then I removed OpenRemote 2.6.0, beta3 and used exactly the same wget command:

wget https://[](


I’m not exactly sure which beta I now have.

Again, the controller listed the MACs of both eth0 and wlan0. I only copied and pasted the MAC for eth0, which worked. I notice the designer has picked up both MACs:

I’ll continue the steps and if everything else is OK, I’ll go back and try the Raspbian Stretch image.

This step about the MAC address is not necessary.

Just create your commands and sensors in the designer, sync you design from your controller and you should be good to go.

Don't forget to create at least 1 panel.

The sync will fail if there aren't any panels.
