[UPDATED JAN 2019] Hue B Smart (Groups & Scenes) - Remove Popcorn Effect!

@tmleafs I was finally able to get this working as it should with bulbs and scenes. My new question is in the new smart things app, no status of the bulbs shows up unless clicked on. My concern is that as I progress and eventually do action tiles on tablets around the house that it will not sync accordingly. Thoughts?

I will never install the new app, there’s no need almost 75% of the devices I have don’t work in the new app and smartthings still haven’t said for original old app users to use it, so I won’t.

I have action tiles works fine for me

Please Note

To install this app you need to remove all current hue devices and apps from SmartThings

Thanks for the app, it works well for me!
( I have it communicating with 4 hubs )

Good morning @tmleafs. Trying to find out what the fix is or what I am doing wrong. Looks like an amazing smart app and has the exact functionality I am looking for with webCoRE. At first I was not able to connect my hub and kept getting the same error as GaryHunjan . It finally connected to both Hubs but under connected hubs it just says “Discovering bulbs, scenes, and groups…” and never populates under “My Home”. Just the hubs show up. Sounds like the same issue punkgamer69 had.

Would it be feasible to add in functionality to mark a bulb/group as unavailable when they are powered off? The Hue SmartApp does this, and I think it can be achieved using the ‘Reachable’ attribute.

Thanks for good work though, this has enabled me to move away from stringify, and simplify my handling of Hue.

I am unable to add or remove scenes. Bulbs and groups are fine. Thoughts?

Have you definitely added the scene device handler?
IDE logs while trying to add scenes please

Yes and it has worked in the past as I have 5 or so added.

the logs say my DTH is mismatched but I am uptodate with the GIT repo that I know off.

Logs

15:06:46: error physicalgraph.exception.InconsistentDataException: DTH version mismatch for id:93d8576e-eec2-470c-a4c3-b75a4ae4cd1b and version:4 @line 574 (chooseScenes)
15:06:46: debug Does scene Bright have lightStates? lightStates = null
15:06:46: debug adding scene Bright. Are lights assigned? lights = [7, 8]

Version is 1.5 if that helps

No wonder we are on 1.83 now each new version fixes stuff that ST break
Please update App & all DHs

Its odd. some bits are 1.83 and other 1.7 and some 1.5. I use the repo to update and it shows nothing. is there a new repo I should be using??

I just checked the repo and it shows the scenes SRC is 1.5 in the notes.

Hey @tmleafs, wondering what your thoughts are on the new zone feature. Is that something that is exposed and could be pulled in the same way groups are? Or is it not worth it, and just use scene in ST?

Have you not tried adding a zone its just a group in the api with the type Zone instead of Room

Hue B Smart shouldn’t know the difference

My bad. I didn’t see it in my zone list initially. I guess we’re good to go! Thanks!

Annoying Action Tiles can’t communicate to Hue to retrieve the Scenes(or more)
Anyways, so this app could help except If I must remove the Hue Bridge and ensure Smartthings no longer has devices from Hue Bridge; all the previously configured Smart Apps will also be removed, am I correct? If so, any method to backup the current Smart Apps configuration for each of my 20 Hue devices?
Thanks for any advice.

Correct you need to remove all existing Hue Bulbs and Bridge before installing Hue B Connect. Also from what I recall smart apps are removed but bulbs are removed from Smart App instance. Maybe someone knows an easier way but I took a screen shot of the smart apps each bulb was configured in and then went back into those and moved most of them over to use Hue groups synced by Hue B smart, its a pain for sure but worth it for support of Hue Groups and Scenes.

Help needed Hue B Smart no longer working, and I’m at a loss how to resolve which makes me sad :frowning: since its been awesome for my needs. Recently something happened not sure what but whatever happened it caused all my hue bulbs to go offline and become non responsive, figured it was because my app was out of date. Before I could update it I had to remove all bulbs scenes, device types, and the smart app. Now when I try to reinstall the smart app it is never able to disover the Hue Bridge. Below is the IDE Log messages. In case you are wondering I have tried to power off Hue Hub and ST hub.

This is not the case should of just updated the code over the top manually or by github integration
