WeMo binding timeouts

I have a Wemo insight outlet that is in openhab. The following errors appear in the log:

2017-11-03 13:27:48.685 [ERROR] [ome.binding.wemo.handler.WemoHandler] - Failed to get actual state for device ‘wemo:insight:Insight-1_0-231545K12006FE’: Could not call WeMo

This is because I move the outlet around from time to time. Sometimes I use it, and sometimes it is left unplugged and not on the network. The question I have is that openhab will continue to poll it and generate these errors, because it had been added to to openhab (and is still listed as an Item).

I’de like to just leave keep this Wemo insight configured for when I do need to use it, without cluttering up the logfiles with the above message. Is there anyway that the Wemo binding, or openhab, can be configured to back off on the polling or mark a node as dead after a certain period, so these messages do not appear in the the log after a while? Otherwise I have to remove the Item while the device is offline.


No, polling is needed as the event system of the devices is not 100% reliable.
Easiest way would be to stop logging errors for the WeMo binding.
You can configure logging for every binding individual.

OK thank you!
