previousState getting -2 and not previous state

Folks,

I have a rule which dims the kitchen when it’s bedtime. This works and works by sending a HSB to the various LEDS of 240,100,10 (Dim blue)
When movement is detected it brightens it up by sending 240,100,100 - this too works.
When the movement timesout I want to set it to the previous value.

Persistence is working well with mysql and logs them. However, when I get previous it seems to get previous -2 and not the previous one.

logic in my rule:

	else if (scene == "MOTION_KITCHEN_NIGHT"){
		sendCommand(g_Kitchen_color, new HSBType(new DecimalType(240), new PercentType(100), new PercentType(100)))
	}
	else if (scene == "NO_MOTION_KITCHEN_NIGHT"){
		var String  str = kitchen_colour_proxy.previousState.state.toString()
		var String[] parts
        parts =  str.split(",")

        g_Kitchen_color.sendCommand(HSBType::fromRGB(Integer::parseInt(parts.get(0)), Integer::parseInt(parts.get(1)), Integer::parseInt(parts.get(2))))
	}
	else if (scene == "BRIGHT"){
		sendCommand(g_Kitchen_color,  new HSBType(new DecimalType(240), new PercentType(100), new PercentType(100)))
		sendCommand(g_KitchenCeiling, ON)
	}
	else if (scene == "DARK"){
		sendCommand(g_Kitchen_color,  new HSBType(new DecimalType(30), new PercentType(100), new PercentType(20)))
		sendCommand(g_KitchenCeiling, OFF)
	}
	else if (scene == "BED_ALL"){
		sendCommand(g_Kitchen_color,  new HSBType(new DecimalType(240), new PercentType(100), new PercentType(10)))
		sendCommand(g_KitchenCeiling, OFF)
	}

the proxy item is in the kitchen group and is used to to track what that group does.
When I step through it I can see it logs to mysql the bedtime, then the movement but when there is no movement it picks up the one before bedtime which was a random value I was playing with.

Amy I being daft?

p.s.
I know my sendCommands are the wrong ones. Not yet got round to changing them :slight_smile:

try: kitchen_colour_proxy.previousState().state.toString() -> note the ()
if that doesn’t help, please try to insert some debugs like

...
	else if (scene == "NO_MOTION_KITCHEN_NIGHT"){
		var String  str = kitchen_colour_proxy.previousState.state.toString()
		logInfo("kitchen_motion", "previous state: " + kitchen_colour_proxy.previousState().state.toString())
		var String[] parts
...

Well, I am more confused now :slight_smile:

Ok, I can see it does actually get the correct value back

if I telnet into the LED controller and check what it receives it gets things in order.

BED >> [MQTT] Received home/lights/kitchen/led/cupboard/LED_KITCHEN_CUPBOARD_1/hsv/set => 240,100,10

MOTION >> Received home/lights/kitchen/led/cupboard/LED_KITCHEN_CUPBOARD_1/hsv/set => 240,100,100

NO MOTION >> [MQTT] Received home/lights/kitchen/led/cupboard/LED_KITCHEN_CUPBOARD_1/hsv/set => 0,58,94

That is what is being sent to the controller via mqtt, in order.

In the logs you can see this:

 g_Kitchen_color changed from 240,100,100 to UNDEF through g_KitchenCupboards_Colour

Line 18 and 37. Could it be because of a circular reference?
Still unsure as to where that colour comes from in the first place…

Well, that’s silly…

I am recording the value in hsb and then for some reason I was trying to recreate it in rgb… Doh!

now I’m confused! :wink: is it solved already?
if not - did you place some debug-information with logInfo() to gather more Information on your rule?

Yup - solved…

The persistence is is saving the value as hsb (240,100,100) and previousState returns that.
I was - for reasons I don’t know :blush: know converting those to rgb and setting it like that.

I was mashing it up… :frowning:
