Enum Class EventType

All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable, Comparable<EventType>, Constable

@NonNullByDefault public enum EventType extends Enum<EventType>
Due to the duality of some types (which can be states and commands at the same time), we need to be able to differentiate what the meaning of a message on the bus is - does "item ON" mean that its state has changed to ON or that it should turn itself ON? To decide this, we send the event type as an additional information on the event bus for each message.
