just several days ago it simply stopped working without any changes done. alexa says that ‘server is unresponsive’ to any attempts to command lights exposed via hue emulation - the core reason openhab was used.
Erasing all devices from Alexa and rediscovering them via Hue hub v1 path found them - so it still communicates somehow, but it shows now all iems as envelopes instead of lights and from alexa app all control buttons are gone. What is all that, is there any solution?
PS. ok, a 1 min googling shows that there is a new skill for openhab and it seemed to resolve the issue - but - is hue emulation way now dead?
Thx for thread reference, it is exactly what happened to me too. Using openhab skill it works now without hue emulation, i presume it is no more. Yes, i am on old 2.0 build as to upgrade openhab is a major pain and all works fine as is.
I guess not anymore. It may be time to upgrade. There will be major structural changes between2.4 and 2.5 too. It has been delayed due to the major changes but it is becoming more stable with the Milestone 3 release.
Honestly i simply see no reason to upgrade for the sake of upgrading. As of simplicity - upgrade was never simple and never worked properly, usually it meant complete reinstall with re-entering of all things, reassignment of all light switches, to redo whole house is no fun at all. Plus i run it on a cent-os linux server that was also adding up fun. So far all runs fine minus the hue hub that is not needed anyway anymore.
And, true, last upgrade was done in 2017. All runs fine since then.
It isn’t for its own sake. Here’s a post I wrote 2 yrs ago on OH1->OH2 upgrade reasons and it all still is true and applies to your situation, too (although you can expect much less hassle going from 2.0 to 2.4 as in principle it is compatible).
As things were introduced with OH2 and you say you run 2.0.0 you can just have gone through one such upgrade. Upgrading from OH1 to OH2 meant to create things and redo major parts of the config and rules.
Upgrading 2.X to 2.Y does not.
