unfortunately changing an item status via REST API connected to an Homematic thing has no effect on the device itself.
- configured Homematic binding
- created thing for an outlet (type HM-LC-Sw1-PI-DN-R1)
- created item (Switch) for this one and connected it to the thing
Switching the item via the UI of OpenHAB 3 works fine. Power is switched on and off at the device according to the item status.
Now the problem:
If I use the REST API to change the status of the item, then the connected thing doesn’t get the on or off command.
I see, that the item itself is changing in the UI, reflecting the correct status I set via the REST API.
I also get 202 success responses for the REST API calls.
But the device itself does not act accordingly.
If I write a rule, which acts on updates to the status of the item, then the rule is also called. But the thing/devices does not do anything.
This happens with more devices.
Do I miss something?
Any help much appreciated!
