this is my first post here. I really like the ConBee Gateway and use it since almost 3 years. But sometimes i do not understand the behaviour.
I trying to optimize my ZigBee MESH using LQI. I added two additional IKEA range extenders to act as routers. In terms of the new Beta functionality Source Routing Routers are meant as Hops?
As a next step i re-learned one IKEA SYMFONISK Switch an my goal is that the Switch should be linked to the Range Extender. I learned in the past that new devices should always be added to the Gateway in that Space where the Device will be used. So i do not add new devices close the coordinator. I hope this rule is still valid?
Now i have two problems.
It seams that the SYMFONISK Switch does not send any commands since i re-learned the device as i am not able to stop playing music. But i see that in the deCONZ MESH that the device is active and LQI is 108. In general is my ConBee Gateway linked to FHEM and the Switch configuration is done there.
Another problem is that sometimes my devices are linked to an Router which acts as a light. But this router is one floor above the IKEA range extender. It’s a light, and sometimes my son turns off the light switch so that devices connected to it have to find another router. I wanted to solve this problem by using the IKEA range extender, which is permanently connected to the electricity.
But how can I ensure that devices are permanently assigned to this router?
my first time here. First of all, I’d like to shout out a big thank you in general for all the marvelous implementations. I use several Ikea, Xiaomi and Philips devices and nearly all of them work as expected.
Now to my issue … I bought recently a Ikea Symfonisk sound remote, 'cause I saw that it was supported from the device list itself.
Since the day before yesterday (date of purchase), I tried to add it somehow to my existing Raspi4/HomeAssistant/deconz integration and it indeed pairs as expected but after that nearly nothing.
What I made: I added the button through Phoscon app → “switches” → “Other” → paired as SYMFONISK controller. The controller is visible in the Phoscon app, but it never shows as an entity, nor can I see any events coming in deconz_event …so I went back to the Phoscon App “Help” → API Information → selected the switch and the RestAPI shows this config:
“manufacturername”: “IKEA of Sweden”,
“modelid”: “SYMFONISK Sound Controller”,
“name”: “SYMFONISK controller”,
If I go to “Events” nothing is presented, no matter which action I take on the device.
Tried 3 different new batteries to exclude the faults described in other posts and repaired it now a few times…still the same result.
Could you give me a hint on how to advance and what I should try to get this thingy running?
