Hue Bulb Status Incorrect


(Andy MacRae) #1

In the last few weeks my bulbs aren’t showing correctly in the ST app. I have a routine to turn them on at Sunset, which they physically do. However in the ST app, they still show as being off.

I have the bulbs connected directly to the ST hub with a device handler.

Does anyone know of a fix for this please?

Hue bulbs are ZLL bulbs which means they don’t support attribute reporting. As a result, when the value of an attribute changes you have to poll the bulb to get the updated state. To get this behavior you need to use the “ZLL RGBW Bulb” DTH, but it looks like you are using “ZigBee RGBW Bulb”. If you switch them, things should work as expected.
