Home Automation System - OpenHAB 3 Migration - 43. Auto reconnection to OpenHab Cloud [Versione in italiano]
by Marco Lamanna
Forty-third chapter related to my OpenHAB 2.5 to OpenHAB 3 migration.
In this video I will show the solution I have adopted to manage the disconnections of my system from the Cloud.
Using log reader and exec binding I managed to create a rule that is invoked in case of disconnection from the Cloud; this rule does nothing more than restart the OpenHAB service by running a linux shell command via exec binding
It is a raw solution to the cloud disconnection problem without a valid reason, which has occasionally happened to me.
Forum post from which I was inspired: https://community.openhab.org/t/display-myopenhab-cloud-connection-status/107008
Thanks to Diego for the idea
This video does not presume to be a tutorial, but simply a step by step of what has been done to achieve the goal. I hope that it will help someone.
