My thing for the controller uses site=“default” and same with the things (they have no site defined). THis had been working.

But not sure if there’s a combination here I need to change.

(Mark) #425

Here’s mine.

2018-10-18 16:35:57.829 [DEBUG] [org.openhab.binding.unifi.internal.UniFiController] -   UniFiClient{mac: 'xx:xx:xx:xx:3b:97', hostname: 'null', wired: false, device: UniFiDevice{mac: 'xx:xx:xx:xx:39:5f', name: 'ap1-md (Kitchen)', model: 'U7LR', site: Site{name: 'MD House', path: '2dkemqdw'}}}

Since my controller spans multiple sites, I use the site names in the client Thing config.

Edit: But I don’t see where this would matter.

(Mark) #427

Have you tried restarting your Controller?

(Mark) #428

Wait! There is no site config parameter on the controller Thing; it’s only on the client Things.

(Psyciknz) #429

Just tried. No difference. Still reporting stuff in the binding as wored

REmoved that, no difference

(Psyciknz) #430
Bridge unifi:controller:nazgul "Unifi Controller: Home" @ "Nazgul" [ host="unifi", username="admin", password="supersecretpassword", port=8443, refreshInterval=10]

        Thing client unifi_xiaomi   "Unifi: Xiaomi" @ "Nazgul" [  mac="xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:23",site="Nazgul" ]

I’ve tried the thing with and without the site.

(Mark) #431

My Things are defined in PaperUI. I don’t use a .things file.

But, the only diff I see between your config and mine is that you don’t specify the Consider Home Interval in your client Thing config. But, I think there’s a default for that, and it shouldn’t have any bearing on the problem you’re having…

(Psyciknz) #432

No I’ve been running this config for a while…but I have switched to a docker for unifi and a docker for openhab. But I can’t see how that can change things. I think the controller is reporting it correctly as I’ve got access ot the full api, and I can see for that device it’s definitely is_wired: False

Any ideas what the code is looking for to device is wired or not? I’d assume the same field.

(Mark) #433

What version of the binding are you running? I’m on this one.

189 │ Active   │  80 │     │ org.openhab.binding.unifi

(Psyciknz) #434

not that one.,… :grinning:

The latest I see is from here https://github.com/mgbowman/openhab2-addons/releases is 2.2

Has it been incorporated into the offical repository?

So I currently have org.openhab.binding.unifi-2.2.0-SNAPSHOT.jar on my addons folder.

(Angelos) #435

latest build is here: https://jenkins.otr.mx/job/openhab2-unifi-binding-v2/

I am running

openhab> bundle:list -s |grep unifi
190 x Active   x  80 x     x org.openhab.binding.unifi

but I still use 5.6.40 Controller because of my AP-AC Outdoor (it goes EoL after 5.6.x)

no :frowning:

(Mark) #436

Not yet. But the version I’m running is from the Pull Request.

Important: The online channel changed from a Contact to a Switch. If you install this version, you’ll need to update your items, as well as change any rules that check for OPEN/CLOSED to OFF/ON.

(Mark) #437

Ugh. I thought I had the latest. :frowning:

(Psyciknz) #438


(Psyciknz) #439

Oh, so which one is it now, a switch or contact? Though mine seems to be happy with a contact item.

(Mark) #440

As part of the review process of the PR, Kai asked Matt to change it from a Contact to a Switch. So, in the lastest versions it’s a Switch.

(Psyciknz) #441

Ok, and that’s the one in the PR…but that’s not the same version as from jenkins?

(Mark) #442


(Angelos) #443

Use a Switch

Here are my items:

/* Unifi Items */

Switch		S8_PRES	"S8 Presence [MAP(Unifi.map):%s]"	<switch>		(gUnifi)	{channel="unifi:client:Unifi_HomeR:S8:online"}
String		S8_AP	"S8 AP [%s]"				<qualityofservice>	(gUnifi)	{channel="unifi:client:Unifi_HomeR:S8:ap"}
Number		S8_RSSI	"S8 RSSI [%s]"				<qualityofservice>	(gUnifi)	{channel="unifi:client:Unifi_HomeR:S8:rssi"}
Number		S8_UPTM	"S8 Uptime [%d]"			<time>			(gUnifi)	{channel="unifi:client:Unifi_HomeR:S8:uptime"}
String		S8_UPTF	"S8 Uptime F [%s]"			<time>			(gUnifi)
DateTime	S8_TIME	"S8 Last Seen [%1$tH:%1$tM:%1$tS]"	<time>			(gUnifi)	{channel="unifi:client:Unifi_HomeR:S8:lastSeen"}



nice trick to display properly the uptime:


rule "Format S8 Uptime Display"
	Item S8_UPTM changed
	var int days = ((S8_UPTM.state as DecimalType).intValue / (86400))
	var int hours = (((S8_UPTM.state as DecimalType).intValue / 3600) - (24 * days))
	var int minutes = (((S8_UPTM.state as DecimalType).intValue / 60) - ((1440 * days) + (60 * hours)))
	var int seconds = (((S8_UPTM.state as DecimalType).intValue) - ((86400 * days) + (3600 * hours) + (60 * minutes)))
	var String result = ""
	if (days > 0) { result = result + days + "d, " }
	if (hours > 0) { result = result + hours + "h, " }
	if (minutes > 0) { result = result + minutes + "m, " }
	if (seconds > 0) { result = result + seconds + "s" }		

then put the formatted item (S8_UPTF) on your sitemap
