@tpmanley - Last we talked, a couple months ago (Re: RGBgenie - ZigBee 3.0 RGBW Controller - v2 & v3 Hub dont see it?), you said there was going to be a change in the firmware so that these types of devices can be discovered easier. Is that still the plan and if so is there any timeline? If I had to guess this device and the RGBgenie that I’ve been working with are doing the same thing. After talking to the rep for that product they told me a customer got it working on SmartThings but most can’t (assuming different firmware versions).
I have a V3 SmartThings hub - latest firmware 000.024.00022 and the RGB+CCT LED Controller (model #GL-C-008) when looking at the SmartThings Webapp.
I was able to pair by “finding” it with the classic app and then saving it. The newest SmatThings app wouldn’t find it. Weird? When I opened up the “new app” the “THING” was there. I changed it as many suggested by changing the driver to ZLL RGBW Bulb. Now able to control the strip. Sweet!
However, is there anyway to do animations with the thing? Or is this all I get? Any help would be appreciated!
Unfortunately using that device type gets it working (a little quirky since white might be reversed) doesn’t enable any other features. Is there any info in the manual for your device that says it does the other stuff? If so possibly a custom DTH might unlock the extras.
Sorry for the delayed response. The fix we discussed is in the next firmware and we’re starting a customer beta for that firmware soon. See here for more info: Hub Firmware 25.x Beta. I will look into adding something about this to the release notes since it doesn’t appear to be mentioned currently.
Yes, I was able to add my device now and it is working great with the Beta. The only change I needed to make was to change it from a dimmer, to a RGB light that changes colour, which I did at http://graph.api.smartthings.com/.
Can you do me a favor? Going to the account settings and then to my devices and to your controller. I’d be really curious to see what is listed under model, manufacture, and product ID in the raw description.
I just received the 2ID version which pairs as a Thing on the beta hub firmware and I set it to the ZLL RGBW bulb which enables both color and white leds, but the on/off control only controls the color leds. No way to turn off the white leds. I realize this new controller is brand new but wondering if anyone has figure it out. Thanks
My understanding is that the 2ID RGBW should show up as 2 Things, and you can control RGB and White individually. It’s possible that ST can only see one of the SSIDs (read that somewhere), so with this hub, only RGB will work.
I assume this setup will draw more power when both RGB and W are on, so the max length of the strip that can be controlled would be shorter.
So I’m trying to figure out what controller and strips to buy for the deck. It sounds like an RGBW strip should be used with a RGBW controller and a RGB WW and CW should be used with a RGB+CCT controller?
What happens when you hook up a RGBW strip to a RGB+CCT controller? Can you still dim the white color properly?
PS. The v25 firmware is out. Can someone confirm it fixes the issues with the controller not pairing?
