Osram LIGHTIFY GardenSpot Minis rgb - aap version

@vitaly
I had the same issue when I switched to the newest DTH. Try using the version 1 of the DTH and see if that works.
@infofiend is aware that some people can’t get the newest DTH version to work. Just hasn’t figured it out yet. The version 1 and the stock DTH work for me.

Hopefully that’s all it is and you’ll get it working.

Try moving the level slider back and forth even though it might show 100 initially. Clicking the on and off button didn’t work until I played with the sliders. I think I ran across the same problem when I first installed the DTH.

I thought of that and tried the original version too. No luck so far. Will play with the slider later tonight. Thank you all!

Yes! I moved various sliders and the light has responded. Thank you so much for your help. Now I need to figure out where to find Core smart app.:slight_smile:

Hi @infofiend,

Could you please help me setup my first Piston? I started with a basic one, but it does not produce the desired result. My lights are turned on/off by ST automation at sunset/sunrise. I did the following in CoRE:
Created CoRE Piston “Randomize Hue” Using
If
the lights are ON,
then
setRandomHue()
Wait 1min
Follow up with piston “Randomize Hue” after 10 sec

Seems simple, but it does not work. I realize that this logic will create an endless loop. Is this ok?

First, I looked at your Piston logic and saw that you Execute the same Piston after a wait of 4 min. I tried to select Execute, but it shows no piston to select on the following screen. This is how I found “Follow up with”. That command does show me my one and only piston “Randomize Hue”. Just another data point in case it matters - I have an older ST Hub, not the latest one.

Thanks!

With @ady624 help, I followed his instructions here to create my simple piston:

Here’s my piston:


Thank you! I added the Set Level command, removed Wait command, and changed the parameter for Follow Up to 30 sec and everything started working.

I need to save this and set it up when I get time. So much smartthings stuff to tweak in and setup just no time right now.

Maybe you guys can help me out. I just got my lights in. However I can’t get them to work properly.

I tried v1.2b of the DH

and nothing works. I get an error when trying to turn them on and off.

error groovy.lang.GroovyRuntimeException: Could not find matching constructor for: java.lang.Integer(java.lang.String, java.lang.Integer) @ line 415

I then tried v1.3 and they turn on and off fine, but that is all that works. I can’t change the color or brightness.

Here are the logs when I attempt to change the color.

Here is some info about the device. Do I have to upgrade them to get them to work? The thread seemed to indicate I didn’t have to.

I had to use version 1.1 to get this DTH to work. Otherwise I was stuck using the stock. There has been others that have posted they couldn’t get the newer versions to work but could the stock to work or stock and version 1.1 to work.

Thanks for the info. 1.0 works, but still a bit flakey.

If nothing changes in the next few weeks I’ll take a look.

@infofiend knows there is an issue for some of us. He just hasn’t figured it out yet.
Mine works good. It’s odd how the newest version doesn’t work for a few of us?
Maybe something in the lights firmware? (I haven’t updated mine, no Osram hub). Or how their connected to the Smartthings hub?

No Osram hub here either. I might just get one at lowes. idk.

The Osram / Sylvania Gateway on sale at the Gaithersburg MD Lowes for $19.99.

Question on placement to line a walkway. I tried this first but it seems most of the light goes straight up into the sky and is lost. The other problem seems to be that if you are walking along the walkway and glance down you will be blinded.

Therefore I placed them right close to the house and angled them slightly so all of the light is used, it hits the house and bounces back.

Any thoughts on how I could use them to line a walkway?

Perhaps a circular screen mesh that fits around each light? This is the first thing that a Google search brought up: https://www.amazon.com/Stansport-Lantern-Wire-Mesh-Globe/dp/B0010KJ1HC

Perhaps you could build some kind of rail along the walk way and then have the lights point downward? Anyway, just a thought…

I have an idea to make my own stakes and mount the lights to them pointing down toward the walkway. Just haven’t had time to work on it. Possibly small wood pegs, or metal bent at proper angle for light effect you want.

Added bonus being they could be little longer than the plastic ones supplied.

Try some not 100% clear scotch tape.

Get a fog machine and have perpetual fog so the lights can reflect off the mist. :smile: Might be good for Halloween!
