I have come across an issue where it seems to me that I cannot get the status of a Fibaro door sensor 2 FGDW-002 until the status changes.
I have a few Fibaro door sensors and they work just fine, reporting opening and closing of doors and battery status except that if, for some reason, I restart Openhab, I do not have an up to date status until the sensor next reports a change of state.
I’m slightly surpised that it doesn’t report its current status every time it wakes up, which I have the devices set to do every six hours but it seems they don’t.
Does anyone know if I am missing something? Is there a way to receive the current status periodically?
If Openhab needs to restart I’d rather not have to wait until I have opened or closed every single door and window to have an up to date picture of the house. Some of my sensors are attached to outbuildings and the doors may not change state from one week to the next. The point of the sensors is not to detect openings and closings, but to be able to report the current status without having to go and look.
Any thoughts would be gratefully received
