My garage is far enough not to be in Z-wave range, but I have Ethernet connection there.
Alongside my main OH system (with Z-wave controller) I had another one running in the garage, with another Z-wave controller (razberry) with 2 devices there.
I was happy to find detailed documentation on MQTT 1.x and used it to post (publish) bus-events, so I could subscribe two items on main controller and know their state and send commands.
That worked as a charm.
Now, I’ve updated to 2.4 and - obviously - it stopped working.
You guys wrote about it in 2018 already and the general conclusion was there is a possibility to create some “publishAction” and so on, so it should be easy to recreate even 50 devices with one rule. Fine.
The problem is not everyone is a programmer and - honestly - I didn’t understand those explanations there at all.
What to do?
Would someone be so nice and point me to some good examples of the configuration how to implement the replacement of the bus events in OH2.4? I know there are users out there with similar configuration, but I can’t share this optimism.
If such a replacement (or “publish Action” explanation) is too much, even just simple example of working configuration for 1 item in sync with another item on remote OpenHab instance would do.
Please notice that I would not be able to implement “publish Action” on my own. (As a matter of fact, I’m not even sure if I understand what it is.)
This documentation is worthless for non-programmer like me. I’ve read it and still don’t even know where to begin.
I even found some (quasi-)tutorial, but it was using the PaperUI, which I don’t want to use, because every time I did, it messed up with my configuration (mostly with z-wave), so I had to spend even more time debugging and re-configuring.
