Ok I have a weird situation going on here and wondering if anyone else has seen this or other suggestions.
Two months ago I got a strip of the Osram Gardenspot RGB smart lights. When I installed them, within a day I lost control of my Cree connected bulbs outside my garage. Two bulbs I’ve had in use for probably 4 months without issue. Then one of them would not respond to controls unless you went into the device in things, and hit refresh a few times or try dimming it. Then it would take controls again. And next time it would be the other bulb that wouldn’t control. When it stayed with one bulb for a week I replaced that bulb, same issue.
So seeing how the only change was adding the walkway lights (gardenspots) I unplugged them. Within a day everything was stable again. For the last month it was fine.
So last night I plugged them back in last night after removing them from ST, and doing a reset the garden spots with the on/off dance until it flashes. Now a day later, I come home, and only one of my garage lights is on… Again open the app, do the refresh/dim dance and it works again. Sometimes it reports correctly with 1 on 1 off, sometimes not.
Anyone else experience this? Last month I powered off the hub for like 30mins, and then back on to see if that helped. I rebuilt the devices and automations, still nothing. I watch the logs in the api and it says it sends the command… I am just at a loss.
Is it because the Osram’s zigbee implementation is different than the Cree bulbs? I thought it was a range issue, but its been stable for a long time, months… I thought about getting a ST outlet and putting it in the garage to extend zigbee further but i have no use for that plug and its not exactly cheap.
Thoughts or ideas? Im about to just get rid of these gardenspots. Never really use the RGB, the white light is ugly since its not RGBW, and they dont do a great job as just walkway lights. Combine with the instability it seemingly has added to my setup…They are about to get donated to someone…
