Thanks for the response. I did try to add the MySensors Message binding from the UI but it seems to fail when adding as a new thing and just sits there as shown below.
When I first try to add the Mysensors message you get the following
10:34:13.403 [WARN ] [io.rest.core.thing.ThingTypeResource] - Cannot find channel type: mysensors:mySensorsMessage-channel
and then once saving
10:35:54.128 [WARN ] [ore.thing.internal.ThingRegistryImpl] - Cannot create thing. No binding found that supports creating a thing of type mysensors:mysensorsMessage. 10:35:54.245 [INFO ] [smarthome.event.ThingAddedEvent ] - Thing 'mysensors:mysensorsMessage:8764e963' has been added.
As I said I had tried to create a custom sensor thing with the child id 255 to intercept the message in a rule but did not seem to want to work either. Anyway not a big deal at least I can get everything else working fine.
Great work by the way
Thanks again for the response.
