I have huge problems with Ikea bulbs going Offline in my ST setup.
I have a Smartthings hub V3. Ikea bulbs. Ikea 2-press contacts, Ikea movement sensors, and 2 Aqara door sensors.
Most often – but not always – the offline bulbs are the ones farthest away from the hub that needs to connect through another bulb. That via-a-bulb connection works for some bulbs, and others often report “Offline”. When I check in IDE on PC I can see that the offline bulbs have not “reported home” in +12 hours (which off course is not the same as they are not trying to). The 2 bulbs that gives the most hazzle and have been offline in more than 24 hours have clear line of sight in the same room to other bulbs connected to the Hub. 3 and 6 meters, but unobstructed view, and they don’t get connection.
I have had the hub turned off in +20 minutes. Tried starting it up again where I connect bulbs in stages, further and further away from the hub. To no prevail. I have tried restarting hub after 20 minutes where all bulbs where on; also without that solving the problem.
Also, my experience with the 2-button Ikea remote contacts is bad. Often I need to press many times for it to react. And the ones farthest from the hub doesn’t react at all, even though IDE tells they are online and connected to Hub via a bulb.
What do you do to avoid Offline Ikea Bulbs?
How do you get the Ikea 2-button remote contacts to be stable?
…and no, I’m not looking into replacing all Ikea gear. Just to have it working as intended….
