Setup P110 with OH3.2 on Docker (Synology DSM > 7) reveals HANDLER_CONFIGURATION_PENDING

This error message appeared some moments later. Meaning that initially OH identified automatically the tapo device (with all its attributes, like on/off switch, energy control etc.). Thus I think, some communication should have taken place.

Now I wonder what this error message means and how I can redeem it.

I already found this about the error:

But I don’t know if this can help as I don’t have a unify binding but a custom tapo binding?

I tried to investigate “error reading device-configuration …” but only found this [TapoControl] - Control Tapo Smart WiFi-Devices with Openhab - #88 by Kaoth

There is says

But it is about other tapo devices and it seems to have no impact?

Being a newbie I am completely lost now :slight_smile:

It’s just that simple: I didn’t enter the ip address (because with H110 it was not necessary). Now it shows ONline. Heurka!
