Hey guys. I’ve just about got all my lights set back up on my St hub. With the exception of three of them. They are all osram bulbs just like the other ones. I couldn’t get then and another bulb to manually reset so I did a reset through the osram app. Everything is cleared now and I was able to add one of the bulbs back in ST but now I have three lights all listed in smart things as “not yet configured” selecting this in the add device shows the items listed simply as “things” what gives?
I already have a Phillips hue bulb that I have a feeling was a waste of 15 bucks as it doesn’t seem it can be added at all. It is currently turned off and not included in the bulbs mentioned above. Any help is appreciated
Step by step of how I did it.
First thing I did was install the Kudlow device handler in my IDE. Once this was done I used the Lutron remote mentioned below to reset each bulb. Info on how to reset can be found in the link in the thread. Once the bulbs were reset I turned them all off and did them one at a time, I would recommend you doing the same.
In the Smarthings App add the new bulb, it should be listed at the top and will show as a THING. Once added in the app, go to Smartthings IDE and log in. Go to MY DEVICES and find the item listed as THING and click on its name. Click EDIT at the bottom. Name - Hue Bulb, Label - What ever it is IE Living Room Fan, Type - Kudled Color Bulb (Note this will be all the way at the bottom of this list.) Now select Update. Thats it, do the same for any of the other Hue bulbs you have and you are good to go.
Thanks for the quick reply. Osram is actually listed in the app as a supported type. Besides, I have 5 other exact bulbs already added to St and working fine. It’s incredibly frustrating. I can’t get them to reset and I can’t even get the osram app to find them anymore. I’m about to scream!
I’m a moron. They are all three Phillips hue. Shouldn’t I be able to make them work with ST as well? To be clear they have only ever been connected to my osram bridge. Never been connected a hue bridge.
If they were connected to the Osram hub, the same thing applies. You will have to reset them using the Lutron Connected Bulb Remote that @diehllane linked to (there are other options, but I can’t remember what they are). There is no other way to reset them and have them join a new network.
Got the controller and did the reset. Got the lights readded and they are now all working!!! @Sticks18 thanks for the patience and guidance. The steps to do this are very specific and I will write up a full step by step guide tomorrow for others who come along.
I replied to you in the other post, but figured I would here to in case anyone else gets to this point. Everything is reset properly and connected to ST, but I can’t find the Kudlow device handler you are referring to. All the other device handler’s I have tried have failed to control the bulb. I have just the simple new Hue white bulb, not the color adjusting.
