thanks for your comprehensive answer.
I have done exactly what you suggested:
- installed Hue service (and yes, I am able to understand the difference between Hue service and hue binding)
- installed fritz binding
- set up my Fritz!Dect 200 devices so that I could turn them on and off in OpenHAB
- Connected the Hue service as a “hue bridge” to Logitech harmony
This was all more or less ok (I am ignoring the fact that the documentation how to get there has been partially wrong and outdated).
But I have not understood how the item files are supposed to be working: whatever I have written in the itmes file, it never got picked up successfully, and the hue emulation service never published any devices to logitech harmony.
I am assuming this is because of the (sorry to say in it in these harsh words) the total mess around how to set up items and maintain tags - the Web UI called “Paper UI” does not offer any options to maintain the items in an appropriate form or fashion, as it does not suppor tags editing.
In addition, the item file I created in \192.168.xxx.xxx\openHAB2-conf\items never worked - my impression was that it never got really read or interpreted by open HAB.
So, I guess my real question is then:
How do I maintain those tags in the items, or maybe even - how do I create or edit items? How do I make OpenHAB recognize/read the item file(s)?
Hope you or anybody else can help me on this one.
