I have a Osram Lightify Zigbee bulp, with all it’s channels linkes to items, working fine.
I newly got an Aquara 6-way Zigbee wall switch, having trouble connecting it - but that’s another story.
I have nothing defined for my switch, it’s only registered as a thing (as the wrong thing - a Lumi.remote - btw), no items linked, I only see one “Level Control” dimmer-channel.
There is no rules file.
Now here’s the thing:
When I press button 2 on my switch the bulp goes to 50%, pressing button 1 the bulp goes off.
This is kinda what I’d like to achieve - but I haven’t told them to do anything yet.
The simple question is:
How can this be possible?
Anyone got an idea what component could implicitly connect those two devices?
In the log I only see
00:04:53.107 [INFO ] [smarthome.event.ItemStateChangedEvent] - BLP_Attic3_W_Dimmer changed from 0 to 50
00:04:56.337 [INFO ] [smarthome.event.ItemStateChangedEvent] - BLP_Attic3_W_Dimmer changed from 50 to 0
BLP_Attic3_W_Dimmer is the bulp dimmer item (I’ve already set org.openhab.binding.zigbee to INFO, but nothing more is logged)
I’m actually not sure I understand the issue here - sorry.
If you have a switch, it will work like a switch. It will turn the item on and off when you press the buttons - you don’t need to do anything. Can you explain what you think the problem is so I can understand better?
Thanks, that you keep asking and try to understand my problem!
(maybe I shouldn’t have called the “thing” a switch - it’s in ioT terms a sensor. I never mean the item-type “switch”)
the “problem” is:
there is no item. no switch item that could receive an update. Only a naked “thing” (the aquara multi-switch sensor) which only has unlinked channels.
And this thing (the switch/sensor) magically sends an ON/OFF command to a different, not connected thing (the bulp, which has items).
So if I want to change what bulp this switch/sensor shall turn on and off, or what button should do that - I simply cannot, because I nowhere told openhab/zigbee to turn on/off the first bulp.
To be even more precise: Two physically different things are interacting where they shouldn’t. Or shouldn’t be able to without openhab/me telling them to do so.
thanks, @rossko57, I didn’t know that!
Could you give me a hint where I possibly could find the settings of my control switch?
I use the Ember EM35x Coordinator from BitronVideo " BV 2010/10 (ZigBee USB dongle)"
I couldn’t find yet a way to either see (out of OH) zigbee-logs or any settings.
As I said above, the best way to resolve this is to reset the device. Currently we don’t have a system in the OH binding and UI that allows manipulation of the binding table. The binding manages the binding table for it’s own reports, but not others that were configured outside of the binding.
