i am trying to use an mcp23017 with a bunch of relays, and it all seems to work well, but for some reason the relays i use are on when openhab thinks they are off (and initial value seems to be unknown).
i kinda had the same problem when i first connected the relays, directly to my raspberrys gpio, but the binding for that has an option to invert it and set initial value correctly.
is there any way to invert this like activelow initialValue used with the gpio binding?
i see there is supposed to be an option for this, but for some reason merging was rejected on github…
also, the default value option seems to ignore whatever it is set to (high or low)…
if it is not possible to fix this within the mcp23017 binding, is there another way for me to invert a switch in openhab, short of making a second switch and a rule to flip it?
any help is appreciated
