I am pretty new to openHAB but so far I didn’t encounter issues I couldn’t resolve myself with what I could mainly find on the forums - so I have been reading a lot during the recent months.
So generally a BIG thank you to all who put their time and energy in this really smart project and still take the efforts to try to help those running into troubles…
What I am currently struggling with is though the interaction between myopenHAB and IFTTT.
Basically I did create a switch (lets call it SW1) that is set on ON after some time a window is opened and set to OFF right away when that window is closed again.
Besides the SW1 status is checked every 5 minutes and if it is ON then it is switched to OFF for 15 seconds before it is switched to ON again.
This SW1 I exposed to myopenHAB - it shows up there and changes are visible almost instantly.
SW1 I now also used to set up some applet to switch off some aircondition device when the status changes to ON. - The configuration of the applet was straight forward, no problem at all.
When I now started to test the whole logic I can see in myopenHAB the SW1 behaviour as intended - but IFTTT hardly seems to react (sometimes the applet is triggered but so far mostly not) within a reasonable timeframe (< 5 Minutes).
What I noticed though is that after some longer time (having observed something like ~20-30 minutes) all those changes that took place in myopenHAB on SW1 so far are triggering the execution of that applet in a row - so like eg 6 times within a single minute.
That of course doesn’t meet the aim to switch off the aircondition in a reasonable timeframe once a window is opened and ensure it stays switched off while it is opened…
Ah yes - last but not least - I am having another applet that relies on some number value being exposed by openHAB as well - I haven’t noticed such delays there so far. (This applet is running since few months)
If anybody would have any idea how to tackle this I’d be very grateful - so far that’s the last step for me to avoid a waste of energy in that regards…
Thanks a lot in advance!
P.S: - not sure if that’s of relevance in t his case: I am running openHAB 2.1.0 (release build) on a RasPi 3 …
