Lidl Smart Home with SmartThings

Luis many thanks for the DTH. I can only get 2 outlets on the strip recognised by ST. Any idea what I may be doing wrong?

Thanks for your reply @Sprox. I just added a second strip and still only two sockets appearing. I did the initial pairing which found one socket. Then changed the device type to LAMS Zigbee Multiswitch which found a second socket but nothing further?

Not sure, I’m no expert - and I only have one 3-way strip. You should see something like this in your device list at https://account.smartthings.com/ (I’ve renamed them so the Display Names will be different):

I didn’t find them at first as they show up at the bottom of the list in the smartphone app. I can only suggest removing it completely and starting it again.

@Sprox many thanks. I eventually found them by deleting and readding a second time forf each and all sockets are there now!

@Luis_Mijares @norberto_bcn can I ask a massive favour please? Could either of you chaps take a look at the Lidl Espana website and tell me if the Smart HEater they are selling is Zigbee controlled please? My flat in Onil is very cold and a smart heater would be a great idea for my work room. My Spanish isnt great but I dont see Zigbee mentioned only wifi?

EDIt: Answered this one myself. It is wifi only unfortunately.

Hello Jon,

You could make any heater smart with only single Temperature sensor and smart switch.

Take a look at this:

Christian I have been adding these finger prints but keep getting errors do you have any idea what is wrong

Andrew I watched the video and I think he is right that the Lidl stuff is a steal although we recently also see the Smart plugs from ledvance/GE they are all the same and sold in packs of 4. Still to make the Lidl stuff work in Smartthings was still a bit of an effort and could only be done with the help of the great people here. If you are new to Smartthings its a steep learning curve even for people like me with some programming experience and long working career in IT/Telco space. Its not something you recommend to your brother or sister if they are accountant or in the healthcare and just need things to plug and work.

But he is right that for 100,- you can easily toy around and get some experience.

Hi Fred,

It look their are line breaks going to the code when you copy it from my Post. I send you a PM.

@Luis_Mijares great work
My 3 way extensions are working great and i can control each socket individually.

I have the LED strip and added your handler, however i still only get white adjustment, with no colour options.

Any ideas please

Otherwise these are great value and I thank you for the work you have done

once youve published the https://github.com/Obi2000/smartthings/blob/master/Sengled%20RGBW%20Bulb.groovy DHT for yourself, and added the device in smartthings, go to the MyDevices tab, click the bulb you added and at the bottom click edit. then change, TYPE to, sengled RGBW bulb, or obi2000 zigbee rgbw xy.
this should let you change the colour

I have made a little mod with the correct Lidl fingerprints for RGBW XY bulb and led strip. It is based in Obi2000 DTH but there is still something strange in the colour mode.

This should detect both devices once instaled the DTH in IDE.

Anyway thanks to Obi2000 and his work.

Question to Lidl Smart Led Strip owners… how long is your strip? According to local ads, the lenght is “approximately 2,5 meters”. Mine was only 2 meters, so I called the customer care. Waiting for resolution now. Interestingly there is no indication of length of the strip on the package, it’s only mentioned in ads and in store. Maybe I’m nitpicking :thinking:
Edit: I stand corrected. It says 2m on front of the package. I’m just blind, it seems. Thanks @Bogweed. Still the ads have wrong lenght mentioned. Feeling a bit silly now…

Mine is 2m long and it says 2m on the bottom left corner of the packaging.

I got the RGBW bulb working nicely with the custom device handler (now also able to change color which didn’t work with Zigbee RGBW). However, the brightness is very low when in color more. In white mode in any color temperature it works as expected. Is this due to the bad quality of the bulb itself, or something related to the DTH? Does anyone else have the same issue?

Hi Louis,

Thx for fingerprint of the Led stripe.

A little change in your ModVersion of the dth from obi2000 will provide the full white colour range.
Take a look on colorTempSliderControl and change it to range:"(2000…6500)"

Thanks for this update, totally made the colour option work now… much appreciated @Luis_Mijares

Hi vhe,

this is a hardware issue, nothing todo with the dth.
You can see this as well in the youtube video in post 44.
I had take aswell a look on the ikea rgb dth and same effect. The one from obi2000 based on the ikea one, but in the Version from obi the colour set is a bit better.

Having trouble with the DTH for the LIDL Colour Bulb. The range of colours work (although not particually bright but I understand this is expected), but the brightness slider itself doesnt respond to anything. Seems it’s stuck on 100% and will not reduce. Any thoughts?

Hi Folks,

We have good news from Christian_H. He has done great improvements in Lidl DTHs.

  1. New Lidl contact sensor DTH.

  2. New great stuff:

The motion sensor now works from cloud to local so it works without a Internet connetion as the contact sensor that he developed does.

RGBW bulb now has also the fingerprint for the E14 model and the colour range for the white colour is set to 2000-6500k (It was wrong with 2700-6500k)

some vid setup in the codes, this will allow in the new App to get correct language depending on the user location is.

You are great Christian. Thank you very much.
