Hue items doesn't work after a time. No issue in the logs

Hi all,

I have an OpenHAB4.3.1 running with a huge setup running on a Pi4 in a docker environment. In general all is working fine and without issues.

Since a few weeks I have an issue with the hue binding, that the hue items don’t react after time. Actors don’t react, sensors don’t deliver updates. In this case I don’t see any issue in the logs. OpenHAB thinks that all works as expected, but it doesn’t.

Does anybody has an advice what to check in such a case? How to find this issue?


OpenHAB4.3.1 does not yet exist.

Yes sorry it’s the latest 4.1.3…

Btw. I already tried to restart the hue binding in such a case, but this didn’t help.

Nobody an idea how to find the issue here?

Do actors, sensors, lights react when you use the Philips Hue App? Just to make sure that it is really openHAB related?
For example I needed to change the Hue communication channel to a different one because some Hue Lights were not reachable due to frequency-overlap (with Wifi).

did you try to change logging level?
You can see the current logging level:

  log:get org.openhab.binding.hue.internal.connection.Clip2Bridge

Change logging to trace:

  log:set TRACE org.openhab.binding.hue.internal.connection.Clip2Bridge

you can revert to info-level:

  log:set INFO org.openhab.binding.hue.internal.connection.Clip2Bridge

I am currently running approx. 70 Hue-things without any problems.

Best, Kai
