Problem with if rules

  • Platform information:
    • Hardware: Raspberry pi3b+

    • OS:openhabian

    • openHAB version:2.5.7
      I’m having trouble using if statements in my rules I have other rules with if statements that don’t work as well and I’m very new to all of this. I have two dummy switches that are both being reported as on and off and the rule will run when I remove the if. Am I formating the if rule wrong or something else?
      rule “We get Home at night”
      Item d_home changed to ON or Item m_home changed to ON or Item test changed to ON
      if( NightState==ON ) {
      createTimer(now.plusMinutes(1), [ |

      Switch NightState “Night”
      Switch test “Testing”

Have you tried if( NightState.state==ON )

NightState isan Item object, with many properties - label, icon, type, name, etc.
Likely you are interested in its state.

if( NightState.state==ON ) {

Ah ok I figured it was something simple I was missing and that would explain why I’ve never been able to get any if rule to work properly thank you!
