Continuing the discussion from Cost effective door/window sensors (UK):
This arrived yesterday. As per norm for orvibo products they seem to be of a high quality. Wiring was straightforward and much less fiddly than my Dresden RGBW controllers. Interestingly, even though it is sold as an RGB controller it appears to also cater for RGBW light strips both the warm and cool variety as it has connections for this and fully documented in the instructions. I was not able to test this with the basic LED strip I purchased separately.
I tried to connect unsuccessfully to the Hue hub. It plain refuses to see the device, unlike my dresden device. So no good if you’re hoping to integrate into the Hue infrastructure for their disco apps etc…
Anyway, it connects fine directly into ST as a “Thing”. I’ve tried a few of the generic device types and it kind of works.
On some DTH it appears to either have an issue with brightness controls or incapable of showing Red. This could be related to my very inexpensive LED strip but I will need to continue experimenting.
Good news is that it connects and I have 80-90% functionality right now.
