I notice that in the events.log in OH2 that I get notifications on Hue lights being online / offline
[hingStatusInfoChangedEvent] - ‘hue:0100:001788203107:5’ changed from ONLINE to OFFLINE: Bridge reports light as not reachable
I’d like to use this as a rule
item hue:0100:001788203107:5 changed from ONLINE to OFFLINE
Has anyone managed to do this?
this is not an item, it is a “Thing”. And there ist currently an issue open for getting the status of it:
So currently not possible as far as i know.
Thanks @Jensen for clarifying. I’ll track that issue in the hope that it is implemented in future
@Kai I saw some updates to the gitHub issue where made in April - does this mean this feature is coming?
I was hoping to use this for powerfail notification since my Hue and Milight bridges aren’t on a UPS and also for notification of when someone ignores the automation and turns a Hue bulb off at the switch there could be a reminder that it’s overridden.
Just coming back to this…
Anyone managed to get any progress on this?
Fantastic! Thanks. I’ll have a go
I think this is a great addition to the system, however, I find it a bit troublesome that there are a few caveats to the definiton of the OFFLINE and UNKNOWN statuses described here:
Ideally I would like to simply check for ONLINE and OFFLINE, but as the documentation goes, it looks like a device in OFFLINE and UNKNOW may well turn out to be completely OK once it receives a command - so I really don’t know what to make of this…
