Hi everyone

Hoping for some pointers and too learn something new

Problem: i’m using the binding for hive but having some problems with the thing going offline this is extremely annoying as i loose control over my thermostat

Solution: using paperUI too disable and then re enable the thermostat thing so i wanted too create a rule too do this automatically using openhabs rest api but this is where i need your help i have not used the rest api yet so don’t know how too achieve this i just know its possible

rule "Termo thing Offline"
when
    Thing "hive:thermostat:d459f1" received update OFFLINE
then
//disable thing 
end

rule "Termo thing Disabled"
when
    Thing "hive:thermostat:d459f1" received update UNINITIALIZED (DISABLED)
then
    // enable thing
end
