Hello openHAB community,
I recently discovred OpenHAB and I installed openHAB version 3.1.0 on my raspberry and configured the KNX binding (tunnel mode)
I’m testing some basic features as switching ligths , dimming lights and control shutters.
I would like to understand the difference between the channel type standard and channel type control ?
The explanations found in the documentation are not cleared for me (KNX - Bindings | openHAB)
Please could you help me or give me a simple example ?
Thanks a lot for your feedback.
standard channel - device that follows directives, e.g. a lamp
control channel - device that issues directives, e.g. a glass panel
standard channel - openHAB Item passes commands to device, and passes status information from device to OH Item.
control channel - openHAB Item receives commands from device, and passes internal OH status back to device.
Hello @rossko57 ,
Thanks for your feedback.
If I understand well, standard channel should be enough for the most use case. (on / off ligh, dimming lamp, up/ down shutters …)
I have again 2 questions (some doubt) about status information :
question 1: If I use standard channel for on / off light,. Do I have to create something to specify my address group for the status information of my light ?
question 2 : How to force a synchro about all status if opehab server has been rebooted ?
