Re: New IR RAW code RX/TX support

Is this available in any of the nightly builds or does it need to be built from scratch. The recent binaries don’t seem to have the P016 plugin. I’ve just got a Daikin Heatpump that refuses to be controlled using my normal USB IR dongle as the command string seems to overflow it’s memory

Re: DHT22 stuck on 99.9% Humidity

That makes sense, it was a particularly insensitive old vent axia sensor mounted nearby that led me to move the replacement sensor nearer.

Re: DHT22 stuck on 99.9% Humidity

I’ll experiment with a reboot, I don’t need any real accuracy with this sensor as long as whatever it says is repeatable. As the humidity lasts after the shower has ended I can safely reboot once the light has been turned out

Well done! Using the designer is a good idea as a small typo can waste much time when you are new to Openhab. It is a great system once you master it and https://community.openhab.org is a great place to search if you have a problem. ESPEasy also works very well with it
