[OBSOLETE] Hue Dimmer Switch DTH (No Hue bridge) rewritten

I got it working, thank you :slight_smile:
Is it correct that the Edge-driver does not show up as a Device Handler?

Question: I see on the frontpage of the device itself, there are the nice 4 buttons, to progam for when pushed and held.
How do I program the dimmer-function-buttons?

When pushing button 2 (which is for turn the light level up), how do I program it to encrease the light level?

And another question :slight_smile:
As in the Hue app, you can program what should happen after you press button 1 once, twice, third and forth time, with different color schemes.
Can that be done in ST and how then?

Technically, this device has two functionality.

In zigbee, there’s such thing called endpoint.
This device has two endpoints.

One is ZLL endpoint, and it is used for controlling lights, as predefined functionality, like you said above.

The other endpoint is ZHA endpoint, and my Edge Driver uses this ZHA endpoints to get button events.

You can use webcore to emulate functionality of ZLL. You can use “adjust level” in webcore to increase/decrease level of the light for button events.

Any news about the health check?

I have several Hue dimmer switches connected with this edge driver for almost 3 months, and my devices are still online. Health checking is pretty OK for this one.


I have just changed from DTH to Edge for my seven Hue Dimmers. I will let you know what the effects are.
Interesting fact: I forgot to uninstall the cloud handler before installing the edge driver, but it overwrote and replaced it anyway. Everything works.

EDIT: Though it’s not the case, but finally to use local driver I’ve had to delete and re-connect it.

After a few days of using the edge driver, I can say that two of the four dimmers connected in this way regularly drop out of the system and stop working. In addition to these four connected via edge I have three more connected via cloud, in the “old” way.
Could this affect the operation of the locally connected ones?

Will this edge driver work for the new Hue Dimmer Switch V2? The one with the bottom button being for Scenes (within the Hue app). Thanks

I have one of the V2 dinner switches, and this driver works just fine.

Does not seem to work for me? What I add to Smartthings I just get a device Thing with no settings to change? Any help

try: remove the device, remove the Edge driver, add the Edge driver back, add the device back by Add Device > Scan for nearby devices

Found it I have to go to enroll then install which driver thanks.

Is ther anyway to use the 2 dimmer buttons to increment increas decrease brightness? Can’t find those settings in Smartthings.

that part I do not know. hopefully other community members can provide you with the info
