I’ve recently got the new ST V3 hub, and am having a nightmare getting it to work with two IKEA tradfri bulbs. Has anyone managed to get them working together correctly?
My issue is that I can pair the two bulbs, however when I try to access them in the new SmartThings app, it says “Can’t connect to device. Check device and try again.”. Looking at my devices on the ST developer website, the two bulbs show up with the correct status (online/offline). The events for the thing seem to be fine. The steps I’ve taken are as follows:
- Create Tradfri device handler: https://github.com/edvaldeysteinsson/IKEA-Tradfri/blob/master/devicetypes/edvaldeysteinsson/ikea-tradfri.src/ikea-tradfri.groovy
- Turn bulb on & off six times to get it in pairing mode.
- In the app, manually add the Tradfri LED bulb E27 980 thing
- Wait for it to find the bulb, and click done.
Anyone’s tips/thoughts would be much appreciated! I’ve trawled the site for any new posts on this subject.
EDIT: Or if anyone can recommend any cheap smart bulbs that integrate better, I’d much appreciate that.
