Hello fellow OpenHAB users.
I have a situation that I have been fighting with for some time and just can’t figure out the solution. First a summary of my setup. I am using OpenHAB2.5 running on a Windows 10 workstation. I have several Things/Items configured from various vendors. One of those vendors is TP-Link. Everything works as I would expect with one exception. The refresh time set for TP-Link Things is not being used. I have some rules created that do different things when a light turns on. for example, if I turn on the Chandelier, then the potlights turn on. Ideally, I would like this to happen within a few seconds but it is taking several minutes. At first I thought it was the potlights were not updating timely as they are Tradfri potlights, but recently figured out that it is actually TP-Link that is not getting refreshed.
When I turn on the chandelier within PaperUI, the potlights immediately turn on. However, when I turn on the chandelier via the wall switch, the item in control panel for the chandelier doesn’t update for several minutes. I have tried different refresh values in the thing with no change. I have tried clearing the cache and TMP files with no change. I have tried both the official TP-Link 2.5 binding as well as the Eclipse Markeplace binding. No change.
If I had to pinpoint a time when this stopped working as expected, I would say it was when I upgraded from 2.4 to 2.5. Does anyone have any thoughts as to how this can be fixed? The above example is one of a few rules that I have that work along the same lines and all are not refreshing timely. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
