i have some simple 433 MHz RF switches which i only can control and not read back the current state. Because of this my item definition contains “autoupdate=false”, so the switchstate stays undefined or null and acts only as an ON and OFF button without a current state in my Basic UI.
I control this switches with my alexa as well. Since a few weeks i got a problem with this setup. If alexa controls the switch, it return the sentence: “-Gerätename- antwortet nicht, bitte prüfe die Netzwerkverbindung und Stromversorgung des Geräts”, in English: “-Devicename- do not answer, please check the network and mains connection”. The switching command is executed correctly by alexa.
I am using openHAB 2.4
My question is now, is this behavior normal since a certain update or some such?
