Heyy @TimO (are you really called the same as me?) Thanks for getting back to me!
Nope, for now I just used the simple mode so no .items file.
Yeah, I agree it can make it feel a bit more cluttered. But then again, battery is also not used in every device (and useless in wall powered sensors). Also other channels you might not use them all as well. For example, I use S_MULTIMETER for voltage and current (because weirdly S_POWER lacks that) but impedance is an useless/meaningless channel here.
In addition to configuring MQTT publish/subscribe options for specific openHAB items, you can also define a generic configuration in the services/mqtt-eventbus.cfg file which will act on ALL status updates or commands on the openHAB event bus.
Yes. The messages are published if no client is connected.
I'd say to keep your current Domoticz install and maybe migrate it to mqtt and once you have everything running on mqtt you can bind openhab to mqtt and start playing with it without messing too much around. Once you are satisfied with your new setup, just switch off Domoticz
Learning to use Openhab is probably the most complex thing you will need to do 😁
Well that part im taking care right now. install ,configure, binding mios(or just abandon vera) ...
I think that maybe it's not good idea abandon vera right now because its only 2 years old and once its not too old i don't need to buy a zwave usb stick.
if binding works well and its reliably maybe i can use both devices because in 2 years vera lite never hangs not even one time with my 10 or 15 devices. How is openhab reliability? its binding work good (sync and updating devices?)
