First post from a newbie trying to migrate from my current Vera-setup. After spending many hours I have a basic understanding to start building my setup, but now I encountered a problem I’m not sure how to solve. I have many wall plugs in my house (Fibaro FGWPF-102) that I successfully can control from the BasicUI which means that my things, items and sitemap seems to be working as they should. The problem is that if someone changes the state of a wall plug by switching it ON or OFF by using the physical b-button on the wall plug itself, that state change isn’t reflected in my basic UI. This was not a problem in my Vera-setup using the same plugs - in that UI, a physical state change was reflected in the UI more or less instantaneously.
So, what am I missing? Should this be automatically updated on the switch-item through the channel? Should there be an event caught by a rule when the button is pressed that will change the state in OH? Or could this be a device-binding problem in OH, and if so, is this a common problem shared by other Z-wave devices?
Btw, I have tried to search the forum for information but haven’t really found anything conclusive.
Any help appreciated!
