Well, I got sick of waiting around for Hub v2 and the need arose to use my existing Control4 dimmer to control some Cree bulbs…
Anyway, this is what I was able to do, if anyone is interested, please let me know. This does involve a Control4 driver to be installed, so will require a dealer to set up and a purchase / license.
So here’s what’s working:
In Control4, I took my bathroom dimmer, separated the load so the buttons don’t control the load, its always on.
The load controls 6 Cree Zigbee bulbs
These bulbs are paired with SmartThings (since no driver exists for the Cree zigbee bulbs for Control4)
Installed a SmartApp that sets up an API endpoint
Get the API token and authorize app and choose Cree bulbs to control.
Installed the custom SmartThings Control4 driver on the main controller.
Plugged in the API Url (http since https doesn’t work in Control4) and API Token.
Added an action on the dimmer top and bottom presses to send commands to SmartThings Endpoint.
And the rest is history.
When I press the dimmer, the Cree bulbs turn on or off to their preset dimmer levels.
Long way to go to get 6 Cree bulbs to work with an existing Control4 dimmer but it works. This means I can now trigger any endpoint in SmartThings SmartApps via any action in Control4, not just limited to Cree bulbs.
Please contact me via PM if you are interested in this solution, I will not be publishing this code open source.
