I’m unable to control any of my Hue devices via SmartThings. When I dug around in the IDE, it appears commands are being sent fine, no obvious errors – the devices simply do not function (on/off, colors, etc.).
The issue I have using ST is similar to the issues I’m having using Echo. There are a few exceptions though. For example, grouped OFF commands work, but not group ON commands. I can tell Echo to turn off the lights in a particular room (each room has 1 Hue light) and all the light shut off – but I cant use the group or the device to set the state to ON (or levels) using Echo.
This morning I tested changes to the Hue lights using IFTTT to Echo, and at least in my first test (trigger blue lights) that worked. I need to test more…
I am able to send commands directly to the Hue on my Lan via Tasker (and AutoHue plugin), and I can control the lights just fine using the Hue app. I’ve rebooted the Hue Hub, no changes. I need to reboot my routers, which I’ll do later when no one is home.
None of my issues make sense, since I would suspect if I cant control the Hue lights from ST or Amazon, that IFTTT would not work – but that isnt the case. Regarding ST cloud to cloud issues, my other cloud to cloud devices are working fine. It’s just the control of ST > Hue that’s broken (and Echo to Hue to some degree). My Hue IP hasnt changed, and I think I last did a firmware update on the Hue last month (no issues after that). I’m on v1 Hue Hub, not sure if that matters.
After I do a bit more troubleshooting, I may hard reset the Hue and try to get it back to the state I had 2 days ago (everything working, etc.).
I would like to see a bit more logging from the Hue, specifically what is happening when devices send data to it, but I dont know any tools to help with that. Short of sniffing traffic on the Lan, I’m not sure what else I can do to work on my issue.
Any thoughts and steps … I’m all ears!
