GE Link Bulb question


#1

i have a few of the ge link bulbs and when the device type is set to “GE Link Bulb” i get no log info from the device. when i set the the device type to “ZigBee White Color Temperature Bulb” i do at least get a log entry from the device. it seems like both device type function beside getting log info

I am wondering which device type is preferred or if it even matters?

for more info when set to ZigBee White Color Temperature Bulb it logs this
1:21:23 AM: debug description is catchall: 0104 0006 01 01 0040 00 216E 00 00 0000 0B 01 0100

The log entry basically means that the device sent a message to the device handler, and the device handler didn’t know what to do with it.

The GE Link Bulbs have their problems, but I haven’t seen any device handlers that work better for it than the default GE Link Bulb device handler.

This is unrelated, but when it comes to the Cree Bulbs, their device handler has a lot of issues and can’t run locally so I use the SmartPower Dimming Outlet instead.
