Issue of the topic: I’d like to know what I need to do to stop any of my channels from doing anything.
Like, stop a microphone listening entirely, or stop the PIR channel on a sensor, or something. This then saves power, pointless actions, and annoyance. It doesn’t really matter why I want it to happen, I would just like it to happen. I’d like to stress that it doesn’t matter what, because I would not like to go down rabbit holes about specific things.
I’m not talking about stopping their rules from running based on a technicality … I’m talking about stopping all Item activity for a given Item. Nothing. Zip. Nada.
I literally don’t know where to start … I’ve looked at about 20 different threads, and since couldn’t find anything I closed them all in frustration (I run inPrivate browsing, so they’re in the wind) and stomped off. I’ve tried a few different StartPage searches including
openhab item disable -"thread::sleep",
openhab item sleep -"thread::sleep", and
openhab disable Channels.
I’d just like to know what settings I use to … AGH … to do what I’ve just done … now I can’t get it back! I clicked this in the Paper UI … now the motion detector channel is gone.
Looks like I’ll raise that separately.
OK … So now more than every I need a way to disable/enable a channel, apparently like you can do in Paper UI, as I just did there.
So, let’s just assume that I’ve got a dummy switch ready and waiting to get this done, I’m comfortable with basic rules, but I must stress, I do not want to mute a channel, I’d like it to stop acting completely. Here’s my fake switch, ready to go:
Switch mmmEye_1_m "Moony Sleepy Eye"
What do I do with this to put any channel of a thing to sleep/disabled status?
((( ftr i got something ‘like’ the original channel back, but I dunno if it’s working properly yet … will raise that when i have it )))
