openHAB version: 2.1
I have a back porch light that I already turn on when my camera detects motion, stays on for a time, and then turns off. That all works fine. Problem is when someone turns on the light manually, the camera detects motion and then after a time the light turns off when you don’t want it to.
So I made a 2nd item on the same thing, wanting to trigger one for auto/motion and one for manual wall switch. This actually operates turning on the light either from camera motion or from the wall switch. But as soon as I make a 2nd item I no longer get reports on the items status when the physical wall switch is flipped. This means I can’t turn off the auto motion turning of the lights off.
Is this normal? When you have two items on one thing, should you expect to see openhab get updates when the thing is switched?
