[SOLVED] Group Item "changed from 0,0,100 to ON"

Hi guys I just updated to 3.2 stable yesterday…

I created a group-item to change two bulbs in the same lamp simultaniously…
I’m getting this log entry over and over without any change to the related items

[INFO ] [hab.event.GroupItemStateChangedEvent] - Item 'gStandsBulbsColor' changed from 0,0,100 to ON through LightStands1Color

I think OH tries to change hsb or rgb values to item states, color-items can have a hsb/rgb value and an ON/OFF state as far as I know.

Does anyone know how to avoid this behavior?

Here are the Item definitions:


Color LightEntrance1Color "HSB Color" <none> (LightEntranceColor) { channel="mqtt:topic:MosquittoMqttBroker:RGB-Bulb-01:hsbcolor" }
Color LightEntrance2Color "HSB Color" <none> (LightEntranceColor) { channel="mqtt:topic:MosquittoMqttBroker:RGB-Bulb-02:hsbcolor" }

group item

Group:Color:AND(ON,OFF) LightEntranceColor (gLightEntrance) ["Light"] 


No, they can only have an HSV state, which can also interpreted as ON/OFF etc.

It’s telling you the Item that passed an update to your Group, but you haven’t shown us that particular Item or the parent Group definition?

ahh sorry copy and paste error…

the belonging entry should be

[INFO ] [hab.event.GroupItemStateChangedEvent] - Item 'LightEntranceColor' changed from 0,0,100 to ON through LightEntrance2Color

but I think I found the answer by myself…

there shouldn’t be an :AND(ON,OFF) in the group item’s definition…

this stops the unwanted events immediately after removing it…

Makes sense. To process this AND function, the aggregator must examine the update from a (Color type) member, then convert it to ON/OFF type. Then pass the result to the Group state, but convert it back to HSV.
