I was wondering if there is a better solution than mine for my garage door…
I setup a shelly one in parralel to the dry contact switch on the wall.
I tried all possibilities under “Button Type” but each tyoe I click on the shelly button, it switch and remain “ON” then “OFF”,
where I would like it to become ON for 1 second, the door is opening.
a second click would be ON again for 1 sec and the door is stopping
a third click and the door is closing…
I tried to set “activation switch” and auto timer OFF after 1 sec, but nothing is happening…
If I get this right you are setting this in the Shelly, correct (I do not own one)?
I’m here doing something similar with my garage door, but using a knx actor channel with a timeout set to 1 sec. in the actor.
The button I use is a simple cell in the Main Ui that sends “ON” as the action when I click on it. The actual state of the linked item is of no relevance for me and nowhere shown as it is just a trigger.
As you did not give details on how you modeled your channel, item or button it is a bit hard to figure out what the reason is that your UI button stays on in openHAB.
So my idea was to let openHAB itself reset the item which should also set the switch to “OFF” independent from your Shelly.
Could you provide more details on your setup within OH?
