This is a repost of the issue described here, here, and here, for which there doesn’t seem to be a suitable resolution. The status of switches on openHAB for Android does not update. One is required to close the app or toggle away from the page in question in order to force it to reload and update the status of the switch. The commands work and I see the state of the lights updated in the events.log file, however the switch icon doesn’t change on the app. This does not happen with the web interface.
Update: I should add I’m using HABDroid v.18.104.22.168 and openHAB v.1.7.0. Updated to openHAB 1.7.1, no change.
