Hi everyone. I am starting from scratch setting my system up with OH3. My previous OH2.x is full of unused items, long abandoned things and rules and just needed to be scrapped.
I am making a simple rule, that will use some ZWave devices: an Aetoec Wallmote Quad and a GE in Wall Dimmer.
This rule is not working and am scratching my head about it, as it seems to be so simple I’m not sure what is wrong.
Can anyone take a look and see if my logic is wrong, or if I am not using the conditions correctly?
If I press the button on the WalmoteQuad, Scene is reported pending on which button, and I can control the GE WallDimmer switch as well.
I have both things setup and functioning and am trying to create my first rule using the GUI.
What I am trying to accomplish:
Wallmote top left button is pressed, Scene reports as “1”.
With the rule using that Scene 1 is pressed, turn off GE Wall Dimmer.
Here is a screenshot of the Rule, and the YAML code it generates.
Thanks @hafniumzinc that is what I would think should happen with the rule. The way I am reading it in the GUI creation is the condition will trigger when the state updates (to 1) as this is what the button press reports when looking at the logs. I am not commanding it to a value of 1.
In order to have it as a true condition with “change”, it would need to be changed “from” and “to”. There are too many combinations to have this evaluate with unless i can use NOT (!) in the rule condition, which I haven’t figured out either. However I have tried a condition of changing from 2 to 1 and the rule still does not function.
Thanks Laurens I tried that as well after I posted my last message. The wording under the “from” says required however that must mean it is a required only condition for the rule.
Still no luck though…
