    thanks for the advice, the issue was simply solved by forgetting and repairing the device, I'm not sure, but there was an interference from my bluetooth headphones that I tried switching off, anyway the article below helped a lot with tackling the issue, I put it here so others can use it if ever encountering this issue:

    @toggledbits It seems that the blinds reversed direction. There's a setting in HA's ZWaveJS UI:

    22849767-a6c2-43f1-8850-86a75b2e1c29-image.png

    This was set to No and the result was the blinds closing tilted up on the inside. After deploying 23326 they close tilted down on the inside. I needed to change this setting to yes for each blind in ZWave JS UI and also any Reactions that had partial open percentages from .8 to .2 (for instance) to have the blind open 20% from closed.

    I tested this thru MSR ZWaveJSController with cover.open and cover.close as well as position.set and the results were consistent: 180° opposite of what they were before 23326.

    I did not have the latest version 23011. Updated the controller.

    Unknown nodes are no longer showing up.

    FYI - The %(#77bb41)[WARN]ings for node 25-x came from the Aeotec Siren 6. I unpaired it and repaired it and there are still showing in the log. in case that helps you.

    Thanks

    @Snowman said in DynamicGroupController Feedback:

    Forgot to mention it requires double quotes.

    Actually, it's a good idea to surround the entire expression in quotes, since expressions often contain special characters that YAML doesn't want to digest.

    In this case, that means you'd have quotes in quotes, which is fine, as long as they are different. In the expression itself, the expression language doesn't care if you use single quotes or double.

    filter_expression: "entity.attributes.x_hass.state == 'on'"

    But I really think @Pabla 's form is the best... that's a special feature of YAML that works really well for expressions, so if you want to avoid headaches, write all your expressions the way he showed.

    filter_expression: > entity.attributes.x_hass.state == 'on'

    In this case, everything idented under filter_expression is taken as part of the expression, so you can write multi-line expressions easily, too...

    filter_expression: > entity.attributes.leak_detector.state && entity.attributes.temperature_sensor.value < 35

    @toggledbits said in Temperature set point changes un-expectedly:

    but that log entry in openLuup's log doesn't look like an action to me, it looks like a response

    Exactly so.

    No evidence that anything in openLuup itself triggered that. Yhere's no HTTP request from an external source either. But anything could have changed the variable.

    Indeed odd.

    Thanks. All of the checkers I tried on initial setup claimed it was OK. Still wouldn't work though.

    Whatever you chose is fine with me. Just another skill I need to understand 🙂

    @akbooer Isn't that a toggle request though, and the next line saying the Target is zero(i.e. off)

    Yes, using both HS3 & HS4. Not an expert but then again it easy to use as it is without tweaking.

    I think I have a real solution for this. As part of the work on ZWaveJSController, I had to make some changes (fairly significant) that I think would stabilize entities when controller initializations are slow as you are seeing here. Most Reactor restarts occur when the hub is already running, but as you've found out, when everything comes up at once, there are nearly infinite ways things can be out of sequence or temporarily missing. Since Z-Wave and its devices can be so much more unpredictable than a running hub, at startup and during normal operation, some changes were needed. The ZWaveJSController testing folks have been using a separate version of Reactor that contains these changes, which I myself have been using for months, and I haven't heard of any issues that could be related to those changes, so I think it's about time I can bless them and put them into the mainline code branch and releases. Perhaps within the next week or so.

    By the way... five minutes to restart Hass? Whiskey tango...
