[SOLVED] OH2.3 with KNX2: No "received command" information from Rollershutters

In OH2.2 with KNX1, openHAB gets information about moving or stopping rollershutters by “received command”.
haus.item

Rollershutter 	EG_Wohnzimmer_Rollladen_Terrasse_Rechts "Terrasse rechts [%.0f %%]"    <rollershutter>  (gEG) { autoupdate="false", knx="1.008:4/1/7, 1.010:4/1/8, 5.001:4/4/33+<5.001:9/3/7" }

When I press DOWN followed by STOP on a KNX-switch, these are the results in OH2.2:

The “received command DOWN”- and “received command STOP”-events are important for me, as they are used in serveral rules.

After updating to OH2.3 with KNX2 the behavior chances.

As one can see there is no “received command DOWN” or “received command STOP” anymore. How can I get them back?

Greetings from Vienna, Austria

Try to use the control version of the Things (rollershutter-control)

Ref: Unit-Support, KNX 2, Karaf 4.1.5 Upgrade and more!

@Dim: Thanks for your proposal for solution. I tried the following:

knx.things

Type rollershutter-control : EG_Wohnzimmer_Rollladen_Terrasse_Rechts 			"EG_Wohnzimmer_Rollladen_Terrasse_Rechts"       	[ upDown="4/1/7", stopMove="4/1/8", position="4/4/33+<9/3/7" ]

But when I press DOWN and the STOP on the KNX-switch I still receive the same entries.

Any other hints?

modify your rules to when Item [...] changed :frowning:

I thought that the -control version of the Things produces a command… it seems that I was wrong.

Thanks, but that’s not possible as I don’t get a “changed” signal when pressing STOP while the rollershutter is not running. Since I am using the short and the long push for triggering some rules, e. g. moving Somfy canvas blinds to their favorite position needs a STOP command.

Here is a rule to move both blinds using a dummy address at KNX:

rule "Move both Somfy canvas blinds"
when
	Item EG_Terrasse_beide_Markisen_Dummy received command
then
	switch (receivedCommand) {
		case UP : {
			sendCommand(EG_Terrasse_Markise_Obergarten, UP)
			sendCommand(EG_Terrasse_Markise_Erker, UP)
		}
		case DOWN : {
			sendCommand(EG_Terrasse_Markise_Erker, DOWN)
			sendCommand(EG_Terrasse_Markise_Obergarten, DOWN)
		}
		case STOP : {                                      // short push right
			sendCommand(EG_Terrasse_Markise_Obergarten, STOP)
			sendCommand(EG_Markise_Timer_Exp, ON)	// delay start to FAV-position
		}
		case MOVE : {                                      // short push left
			sendCommand(EG_Terrasse_Markise_Obergarten, STOP)
			sendCommand(EG_Terrasse_Markise_Erker, STOP)
		}
	}
end

“EG_Terrasse_beide_Markisen_Dummy” is linked to a KNX wall switch.

knx.things

Type rollershutter : EG_Terrasse_beide_Markisen_Dummy 			"EG_Terrasse_beide_Markisen_Dummy"       	[ upDown="1/2/17", stopMove="1/2/18" ]

So that’s the reason I need the STOP reply even if the blind is not moving (impossible for a dummy).

Don’t know why my first attempt using rollershutter-control didn’t work (maybe the use of position="..." causes problems), using this version of knx.things works like charm.

knx.things

Type rollershutter-control : EG_Terrasse_beide_Markisen_Dummy 			"EG_Terrasse_beide_Markisen_Dummy"       	[ upDown="1/2/17", stopMove="1/2/18" ]
