LightwaveRF Errors


Another beginner here and I have a few issues with sending commands to my LightwaveRF Link.
It appears to connect at openHAB startup with no problems:
2016-03-04 09:33:02.024 [INFO ] [htwaveRfGenericBindingProvider] - ConfigString[room=2, device=1, type=SWITCH] Room[2] Device[1] Serial[null] Type[SWITCH] Poll[-1]

2016-03-04 09:33:02.110 [INFO ] [l.internal.LightwaveRfWifiLink] - Starting LightwaveRfWifiLink Connection

I have configured my .items, .cfg and sitemap so that if I turn a switch on from the Lightwave app it is reflected in openHAB and get this message:
2016-03-04 09:38:49.575 [INFO ] [.l.internal.LightwaveRfBinding] - Update from LightwaveRf ItemName[Light_GF_Living_Table], State[ON]
2016-03-04 09:38:49.589 [INFO ] [runtime.busevents ] - Light_GF_Living_Table state updated to ON

Which all looks fine so far.

However, when I turn the switch on from openHAB, nothing happens and I see this
2016-03-04 09:40:59.214 [INFO ] [runtime.busevents ] - Light_GF_Living_Table received command ON
2016-03-04 09:40:59.526 [WARN ] [t.i.s.MapTransformationService] - Could not find a mapping for ‘-’ in the file ‘’.
2016-03-04 09:40:59.691 [INFO ] [.b.l.i.LightwaveRFSenderThread] - Ok message not received for 200,!R1D2F1
, retrying again. Retry count 2

I’m also seeing these occasionally, which I assume to be the same problem.
[INFO ] [.b.l.i.LightwaveRFSenderThread] - Ok message not received for 100,!F*p

I’ve looked through all the posts that seem to relate to these errors but nothing seems to work.

I’m running openHAB 1.8.1 on a Raspberry Pi 2 B and have a z-wave daughter board installed, although nothing is configured to that at the moment.

I’m pretty sure its something simple I’ve overlooked but can’t work out what ! Any help would be appreciated.


Hi Alan,

I’ve got almost exactly the same issue over at

Advice so far seems to be to make sue you are running the latest version of the bindings (1.8.0_alpha12) and that the send/receive ports are the correct way around.

Out of interest, so you have one of the new lightwave links (without a display on it)?



Hi Matt,

Yes, I have one of the new Links. Seems to be working fine through the app, just need to get it to accept commands from openHAB !

I’ve downloaded and replaced the existing binding with the alpha12, changed ports to match Neils comment in the other thread and I’m still seeing the same problem. Should I have renamed the binding ?

FWIW - The only LightwaveRF devices I have added so far are 3 x basic plug in sockets which as far as I can make out are just switches.


Hi Alan,

Yup, I’m seeing exactly the same thing - works fine in the lightwave app, it’s the OpenHAB binding that seems to be the issue.

It’s a good question about renaming the binding. I downloaded the new .jar file and moved into my “addons” directory with the same name as the binding that comes with the 1.8.1 download, but I don’t know if that’s correct or not!

It looks like it picks up the new binding, and I can recieve messages from my energy monitor, I just can’t send them to the lights.
