I have aquired my first Phillips Hue devices, a couble of Hue Play lamps, I am running a Conbee stick and Deconz/Phoscon.
When I try to add the Play lamps the are discovered right away, and they look like all my other lamps/bulbs in here.
I can add them to my groups also, but I cant control them, nothing happens when I try to change color, turn on and off or change the saturation or brightnes.
After a while they are grayed out, like the Lamps where turned off. Even if the lamps are still turned on.
Can anyone help me here, what can I do to investigate further or is there a fix.
Running version 2.05.79 Firmware 260B0500!
The Lamps apear as:
So I did some logging.
The Log is here Deconz-Log - Pastebin.com
I started searching at 23:10, Found the to lights added them to a group (grp-Sovevaer) and tried to do some controls. Turn off and on, change brightness and so on.
There is only a couple of minutes logs, as I encountered that the log rentention wouldn’t allow for more, in order for you to have the start in the file.
Hi tried it.
Added them to a card, and you can click them but the slider slides back.
I Captured a log while is was testing from HA, but i dont think the Add light sequnce is in it as the log retention only captures a few minutes.
I also had problems adding them to Groups again today.
My Stick is a Conbee (identifies as raspbee), and it is rather old. Dont know if that is a factor.
This looks a bit like routing issues either to or from the device. I’ve noticed that the firmware version in use is from 2016, it might be worth a shot to upgrade to recent version, since there where quite some routing improvements and especially source route support could help here.
I thought i had the latest firmware, but i can see the upgrade now.
I am upgrading to the latest and trying again, if that fails I am moving the lights closer to the Conbee stick.
I have a router (Ikea bulb) with in 4 meters of the lights right now, thought that would be enough.
However I cant seem to figure out how to display routing connections in the VNC!
I have now Moved the lamps to within 4meters from my conbee stick, with no walls in line of sight.
But the result is the same, they are getting added Right away when i turn them on, but i cant control them.
