Issue of the topic:
GlobalCache iTachIP2SL configuration.
I did everything on the UI. The binding found all my devices. Added the IP2SL one.
Created a switch item linked to the (only) channel of the device.
Created a simple map file in the transforms directory:
Tried 2 (exclusive) methods for the mapping:
assign the map file in the Thing creation screen (I assume designed by the binding)
assign the map file in the Item screen of the switch under Channel Links/Profile->MAP
Nothing seems to work. No error messages either.
Surprisingly, if I put a non existing file in the Thing screen, it does not throw any error.
The Item screen disallows that.
What am I doing wrong?
Thank you for your help and patience, I am just starting.
To give more background:
I have also a Contact Closure unit and it works very well. The setup is very easy and the communication works fine.
Regarding the Serial device,I have set up the logtail feature and I see the ON, OFF signals being “broadcast” but nothing else. No errors.
I also use the iTest app from GlobalCache to send the command to the device directly, and my receiver (a Denon) reacts accordingly.
Thank you very much Mark, the item as a string made it work.
If I may ask, what is the difference? I would have thought that a switch is simply a string item sending ON and OFF strings.
Also (I know it’s a general question), is there a way to test string items by entering the string in the Item screen, rather like switch can be turned on and off on its Item screen?
More importantly, thank you for the GlobalCache binding, it is really use to use.
