Does anyone know there if there is a .items configuration example out there? I have the most basic things working here like dimmers switches and temperatures. But wat i need is a status indicator from a contact / input.
i belief it is the “contact” integer but i don’t know how te implement the correct line
I’m no expert, I think you’ll find that Channels can’t be used directly in a UI.
If you want to show the status of a Channel, you’ll have to use a rule to change the state of a virtual Item.
Something like ----
rule "Switch on"
Channel 'velbus:vmb7in:c5053467:0B:input#CH1' triggered PRESSED
rule "Switch off"
Channel 'velbus:vmb7in:c5053467:0B:input#CH1' triggered RELEASED
Try these kind of questions in the OpenHab2 forum, you’ll get many more answers
