Button doesn't release

Button doesn't release

I am connecting a NetIO button to a FHEM* telnet port (confirmed as working separately using the telnet cmd). When the button is pressed it does send the command but then it stays “pressed”, ie it never “releases”.

The connection “FHEMserver” is defined with the following parameters
Host and port: (as appropriate)
Timeout: 3.0
Format: String
Protocol: tcp

The button is defined as follows
Shape, label, textcolor, background, border: (as appropriate)
Sends: set Switch on
Connection: FHEMserver

I have tried various combinations of other attributes without success.

Can anyone provide some help?
Can I connect to a telnet port?
Thanks in advance.

*FHEM is an automation suite

Hi jacqu0,

what do you mean with - “…it stays pressed”?
Does the button constantly sends the command or does not change his look?
Do you use the parse and format response attribute for this command?
For me it is not clear what you expect after the button press, please describe it in more detail.

Unfortunately there are only two members (mcgiver0510 and my self) in the forum who take care of the users (as far as they can). Sometimes it can take a while until you get an answer, because we don't always look in here.

Hi Kalle,

Thanks for the reply.

I have attached 2 images of the test page within the app.

1. The unpressed “Direct Lights On” button.
2. The pressed button.

When initially pressed the appropriate command is sent (“set switch on”) and the button image is reversed as in image 2. But instead of the button image returning the initial state (image 1) it just stays as image 2 and further operations (“presses”) of the button does nothing.

I don't need to parse anything returned from the FHEMserver connection.

…either the button waits for a response ( and does not get it ) or the TCP connection is lost.
You can try to deactivate the option “requiresSendReponse”.

Edit :
thx for your answer

That sorted it.
