Hue Lights Started to Work Slowly (March 2024)

I´ve been using Hue lighting in my home for a while (Hue hub + edge driver + V3 hub) and they´ve worked like a charm so far but at some point last week they started to act slow. I mean really slow, it takes sometimes up to 30-60s. for them to react motion or if I turn them on manually via ST. Sometimes rarely they work as should and if I control them via Hue app they work instantly. I haven´t done any configuration changes lately and been trying to reboot everything but nothing seems to help.
Is there some general problems at the moment or am I having some individual problems?

Having the same problem, but not only with hue lights, also with zigbee buttons and power outlets. Sometimes the lag can even be several hours.

Which edge driver are you using? There are 3 currently available:

  1. stock LAN version

  2. stock Matter version

  3. custom LAN version from @blueyetisoftware

Oh, sorry I didn´t realize there´s other edge drivers than @blueyetisoftware version and that´s what I´m currently using.


I guess I am getting my answer on “Am I alone?” check this Aeotec Smart Home Hub/2018/2015 Model Hub Firmware Release Notes - 0.52.11 - #41 by Zmarc

Seem to be since I got firmware 52.11 V2 hub.

Exact same behavior as original poster.


I was suspecting something like this and that´s a pity because most of lights in my house are Hues and this issue is starting to get beyond tolerable, but let´s wait a bit and see if there´s a simple fix :slight_smile:

Seems to work great again.
Many thanks to @blueyetisoftware !
