ok - so maybe a super dumb question, but one think that confuses me about openhab is that most bindings seem to require the the manual creation/definition of all items in my environment. E.g. The Nest binding seems to require that I manually define everything… but via the API, all the items should be available. Insteon seems to be the same way.
I’m confused as to why this is automated (key word, right?) … or what am I missing?
