Rule or script to detect states

Everything works fine less when I control from MQTTfx or from the device I do not get un update, only that.

Items sitemaps works fine. Mosquitto works fine. But it seems that there is no link between broker and OH2 client.

I regret that the log does not work properly, I tried to load the log page and I get en error, and I have also tried with http://openhabianpi.local:9001/, without sucess. :confused:

Have you installed frontail to show the log on this way?

yes, from openhabian-config

ok, I have reinstalled frontail, now log is working under server.local.9001, this is the log. I do not use authentification.

But sending from OH works?

Please use code fences for the log. Use the buttons above the textfield!

your code goes here

I think you have a problem with you installation.
Without knowing what you have done it is painful to asking all details.
There are different raspian-versions.

I would start with a new installation unsing this way
and Raspberry Pi image v1.4.1 openHABian v1.4 released!

yes from OH works fine.

Yes, I will try a new clean installation.
This is not working properly, at least the link between mosquitto and OH.

I will try v.1.4.1


Why do you have 2 mqtt-broker connections?

Please post the commands MQTTfx show.

good question, what the hell is that? But, in mqtt.cfg file I only have mosuitto.url. why the system tries to start other broker?

FYI: I had a openhabian version from 17.12. 2017. I am going to reinstll everything.

MQTTfx commands are:

cmnd/sonoff01/POWER PAYLOAD: ON/OFF

and from MQTTfx is working fine, I get commanded and publish.


<[mosquitto:stat/sonoff01/POWER:state:MAP(]", update="false"}

thanks hr_2

I will try after resintall everything.

Why don’t you try @hr_2 suggestion before reinstalling everything. The binding did work ( switching worked) only the feedback from the device wasn’t configured correctly.

ok, I will try but at night before reinstall, because I have to go to work :smiley:
thank you for your help!!

I have got some progress. After try what hr_2 posted, I do not get that OH get states updated.
I decided to reinstall everything. OH and Mosquitto are running ok, everythim I release a command from MQTTfx, I got a message in the OH log, and it seems that something in the is wrong

But it was not enough, SO, I decided to change them to:



Thank you for your help!!

In this case you would not need a map transformation. As your commands are already on and off.

I thought about it, but what happend with NULL? I got a warning in the log… Well, I will try

Yeah NULL. But do you get NULL states?

Yes, I did get but I think only when I reboot and turn on/off switches first time, after one cycle of ON/OFF I do not get NULL states anymore, … that is why I wrote NULL in the

2018-04-04 22:59:55.284 [WARN ] [] - given new state is NULL, couldn't post update for 'sonoff04'

I think this can be ignored then, but this is just my opinion.
Just on a gut level i would expect faster processing without map.
