I’m undoubtedly missing something obvious, but can’t seem to figure out how to do what I expect is a simple thing: To have a device (in this case a zigbee wall outlet switch) turn off a specified time after it comes on, every time it comes on.
I’ve read this: Items | openHAB
But it still eludes me where exactly I can add the expire parameter to an item. If I go to the Thing/channel configuration that represents the switch there is something called “Auto OFF Time - Time in 100ms steps to automatically turn off when sent with timed command” which seems to have no effect and for which I can find no documentation.
In the items.html above, it says:
There are two methods for defining Items:
- Through UI
- Through text
.itemsfiles located in the
$OPENHAB_CONF/itemsfolder. Files here must have the extension
.items; you may create as many
.itemsfiles as needed. However, each Item must be unique across all
On my OpenHABian 3.0 system the items folder in the conf samba share is empty. And as I said, I’m having a devil of a time finding a place to define it in the UI.
- Platform information:
- Hardware: CPUArchitecture/RAM/storage rPi 4, 4GB, 32GB
- OS: what OS is used and which version OpenHABian 3.0 (release build)
