i am currently trying to publish item number values via MQTT Binding to other MQTT-connected devices.
However, i observered a strange behaviour.
Both things and items are configured exactly the same way. However, in one case the value is correctly published via MQTT, in the other case not. The topic just stays empty.
MQTT_link_Balkon_Temperatur to publish the linked items (follow mode) are configured the same.
Also the linked items
Ble2mqtt_Ble2mqtt_Xiaomi_Sensor_4_Temperatur are configured the same.
Also the Things to receive the Temperature value of the Xiaomi Sensors (Bluetooth to MQTT) are configured the same. Both do have the unit “°C”.
The result is the following:
Balkon_Temperature is publishing a value. Humidor_Temperatur not.
I completly dont understand why…
Of course i also can directly receive the Bluetooth to MQTT topic in my MQTT-connected device. However, i want to expand this approach for many other items which are not all MQTT connected already.
Maybe someone can help me.
BTW: Is there a way to configure such stuff via code in VisualStudio? The GUI is nice but for a lot of Things and items very time consuming…
