Hello, I start by asking forgiveness from the veterans for my “dry feet”! I’m just getting started wit OH, and thought I would get my feet wet by first installing and configuring a setup using the UI only. Then, I planned to go at it again with the files approach when i’m comfortable. I have gone through a great deal of the documentation and posts, and am still trying to wrap my understanding around the relationship between the text files and internal DB populated by PaperUI - especially if they are utilized at the same time. Some of my first questions - Do I understand the following correctly?
- If text files are not utilized, it appears to me that the Bassic UI, Classic UI and Sitemaps are completely useless. Correct?
- If text files are not utilized, integration with the Alexa skill is not possible, since type tags can’t be associated with items. Correct?
Also on this topic (maybe), I have successfully added a couple of Radio Thermostat CT-32’s, and linked their channels to items. The items show up in PaperUI Control, where I am able to adjust ‘SetTemperature’ by typing in a numeric value. However, I am unable to enter a value for the item in the mobile app. It appears, but there is no place to enter a value.I’m wondering if this is a sitemap issue?
