Re: Finished: H801 RGBWW control with openhab2 and mqtt

Well, in the meantime I've found the plugin, P123, and it is referenced in the first message of this thread (that I hadn't read before... ;) ), it is from an external github repo. I'll see if I can fix up that one to current 'state of affairs', as it does have the 'lights' commands and hexadecimal ...

Re: Ghost switch ??

And you should really use a pull-up resistor (10k or 4k7 would be fine) on the button input gpio, the internal pull-up of the ESP is too weak to keep it firmly high if the button isn't pressed, so any induction across the wires may fake-push the button. Thanks for that hint. I'm also experiencing a...
