I got my Raspbee 2 and Pi Zero W 2 (which has the same Broadcom BCM2710A1 as the Raspberry Pi 3) and I put them together but there doesn’t seem to be a connection.
I flashed Phoscon_Gateway_Headless_2021-08-23.xz and used raspi-config to setup the wifi connection.
According to the documentation I could use VNC to run deCONZ, but I wasn’t able to establish a connection using Remmina, Vinagre or TigerVNC from my Ubuntu machine. Either this feature doesn’t work or it could use some improved documentation. Also the webserver doesn’t work even though according to top deCONZ is running in the background (without GUI).
So I ran ssh -X (with X11 forwarding), so I could run deCONZ from the Pi on my local X11 server.
As you can see in the yellow circle, the “connect” button is greyed out. Now that deCONZ is running, the webserver works. But it appears there is no connection. I cannot connect any lights.
Are there any additional steps I need to take to get the Raspbee 2 to work on a Pi Zero W 2?
Is this Pi Zero model 2 too new and the Phoscon images not yet compatible?
Should I format the card and just use Raspberry OS?
I am not allowed to embed more pictures or links to documentation because I’m a new user, not yet vetted by spam protection. For a more pleasant read see original post on github.
I just edited my post at the same time as you responded Turns out I read the VNC details wrong. The logic-center of my brain auto-corrected the documentation so I read:
Login via VNC
The headless images can be viewed without monitor, the graphical login can be done from another PC via VNC.
But I turned off auto-correct and now I see it actually reads:
Login via VNC
The desktop based images can also be viewed without monitor, the graphical login can be done from another PC via VNC.
I assumed the VNC is for the headless one, because in my experience, VNC is always for the headless one. Otherwise the page doesn’t explain how to connect to the headless one.
I don’t believe I can submit a PR to the website, but this mistake can be prevented by explaining that a webserver is running in the lineup of login methods. For example:
Login via WebApp
The headless image automatically start the deCONZ webapp on port 80. All you need to do is connect to this port and create a password.
Login via SSH
The login through SSH allows access to the Raspberry Pi via terminal. On Linux and macOS this can be done via terminal. For Windows, Putty provides the same functionality, it can be downloaded from https://putty.org.
Login via VNC
The desktop based images can also be viewed without monitor, the graphical login can be done from another PC via VNC. The RealVNC Viewer is required for the VNC login. It can be downloaded from https://www.realvnc.com/download/viewer.
