Is it possible to change the value of an item without triggering a rule?

I would like to set the value of an item without trigger a rule… is this possible?

Yes, it depends on the trigger of the rule

The changed trigger is self-explanatory
The received update triggers every time an item is updated even if doesn’t change value
The received command trigger when the item receives a command

Show me the rule and we may find a solution to your problem

Hi Vincent,

I have an item that when changed from the BasicUI executes a rule. However, when that item is changed through a different source, I do not want the rule to execute.


The UIs send commands to Items. If you can have your mystery different source send updates, you can differentiate between them in a rule trigger as already explained.
