I had created an OpenHabian on RPi3 and have connected to tasmota (on sonoff).
After the configurations the lights are working one.
Added the .items with MQTT and tagging.
Configured cloud connector and linked to googlehome for automation.
Used paper UI and network bindings to search the smart switches and added the things.
After linking items to the things in channels->Online->Linkeditems.
It was observed that the log viewer reports switch turning ON from off state (as event), automatically (without user input). This seems to be resulting in the switch status on APP and cloud to be changing the status to ON state. But the light would be off itself(only state of switch changes)
As a part of debugging unlinked the switch (item) from the Thing and everything works fine (switch status correc, no unexpected event of switch turned on reported)
When the things are linked with items by paper UI. The switches / things appear in Control panel of paper UI. If i referesh the page then the switch becomes inoperable (Disabled, cannot click on it)
The only way to recover is to unlink the item from the things and link it back.
But at the same time the switch can be operated from Mobile app and google assistant. When operated from app/assistant the switch status get updated in the control panel (but not able to control from control panel of Paper UI)
Switch GF_Photo_Light “Photo Light” (gBalcony) [ “Lighting” ]
I ahd decided to unlink the items from the things discovered in paper UI and had used habpanel to create the switches. Everything works fine now
Now everything works fine but the switches are not populated in openhab APP (in local as well as remote modes).But the lights could be controlled from google assistant.
I assume that the if i create .things manually (by scripting) it may work.
Please help me in solving the issue and guiding me how to create the .things (might be some examples) would be fine
