Item Configuration

This binding only supports Switch items, which can be configured with the following syntax:

Switch YourItemName { rpircswitch="<groupAddress>:<deviceAddress>" }


  • <groupAddress> is the ID of the switch group
  • <deviceAddress> is the ID of the switch within the group

Group and device address can usually be configured in the RC switch device by adjusting DIP switches.
