Basic rule/rule file acting temperamental, again.

  • Hardware Contributor

    Good morning, my demo.rules, default.items and default.sitemap files are added below here. I had it working perfect last night, then i changed the naming scheme i had for the groups and items inside of default.items, so then i went and changed the rules and sitemap to follow suit. The sitemap works perfectly now, however the rules are not being triggered. I have checked my OpenHAB logs, its reading "2015-11-29 07:54:04.829 [INFO ] [c.internal.ModelRepositoryImpl] - Loading model 'demo.rules'". It might be some silly little error that I don't see after a couple hours of sifting through.

    demo.rules (I plan on condensing this when i get it work again).

    rule "LightOn"
    	Item cinemaroom_switch01 changed
    	if (cinemaroom_light01.state == OFF){
    		sendCommand(cinemaroom_light01, ON)
    rule "LightOff"
    	Item cinemaroom_switch01 changed
    	if (cinemaroom_light01.state == ON){
    		sendCommand(cinemaroom_light01, OFF)

    default.sitemap (Some have caps some don't the ones that don't is for these testing purposes so I don't make a basics error on capitalization.)

    sitemap default label="Main Menu"
    	Frame label="Cinema Room" {
    		Text item=CinemaRoom_Temp01
    		Text item=CinemaRoom_Hum01
    		Text item=CinemaRoom_Motion01
    		Text item=cinemaroom_switch01
    		Switch item=cinemaroom_light01

    The rule is now working, i have not changed a thing, just retried it after around 5 hours of leaving it alone. No restart since this morning or anything, just started to work for no reason.

    If an admin would like to remove this post due to unknown fix then you are more than welcome.
    Thank you, Sam.
