Hi Howard,

Welcome to openHAB.

A few tips for starting out, create a backup and test that it works. Always create a backup before making changes to your OH server, this will save you hours of time, in the event something goes wrong.:wink:
Install VSCode with the OH extension, this is a great tool for editing files and creating rules. This is also a big time saver as it helps identify syntax errors and provides drop down options for rules.

Best of luck and don’t hesitate to ask if needing assistance. This is a great community and once again, welcome!
