I’m using OpenHAB 3.1 running on Raspberry Pi 4 4GB with Raspberry Pi OS.
In my smart home system I have Z-Wave wall switches panels I use to control lights, ceiling fans, a bathroom heater and a water boiler Items.
In order to conserve energy, I would like to setup the bathroom fan, heater and water boiler to automatically shut-off after 1 hour. However, when I tried to use the Expire metadata command with them, they did not shut-off properly.
I’ve been told by other forum users, that using the Expire command for longer periods of times with Z-Wave things tends to fail due to limitations of how Z-Wave things communicates with OpenHAB and sends status reports (Expiration timer sometimes fails - #7 by rossko57).
Can anyone, please, explain how I should setup these two solutions?
Unfortunately, I’m not a programmer, so I didn’t understand how I should tackle this issue based on previous forum topics.
Many thanks in advance.
