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

Have you tried splitting the app into two instances and adding each bridge to one of them? It’s mentioned some posts back, and it’s pretty recent.
I think it would solve your issue.

Thanks for the tip, I have it working now.

It doesn’t add the Hue Bridge with latest Firmware 1937113020 (February 24, 2020)

Here are the records from the log:

Message says you already this Hue Bridge installed into ST by the officially supported software

To install this you must remove all hue devices & apps before it will work

Thank you! I removed original ST integration with Phillips Hue Bring and Hue B Smart detected the bridge. I wish both integrations would be supported though. I need Hue B Smart only to integrate Hue Lights Groups (to avoid popcorn effect) but I am fine with default ST Hue Bridge integration for light control and I actually prefer it since it runs Local, where it seems each bulb integrated with Hue B Smart is run through Cloud…
Is it a technical limitation to have both Hue B Smart and default ST Phillips Hue integrations active?

Anyone having issues after being forced into the new Alexa skill. I’m not sure if the issue is specific to the new ST skill or not, but having several lights not responding from Alexa (app or voice). It’s not consistent either so hard to figure out the problem. But I’m also wondering if there’s a chance Hue B Smart will work in the new ST app. Right now, I do not believe you can add/remove bulbs and groups inside the new app.

I don’t use Alexa so can’t comment on that.
But regarding Hue B Smart working in the new app, it’s been mentioned that Samsung intends to release an update to the official hue integration that would support the groups. It would mean that you wouldn’t even need hue B smart after that, and hopefully it will happen before they remove the classic app.

Where have you read that official group support is coming? I’ve been asking in the ST beta all the time

It was mentioned some months ago in a conference I think, but no news since then. It’s probably not a priority atm, but it’s in their radar.

Found it: Samsung Developer Conference (SDC) 2019 (October 29-30, 2019)

Cant believe I missed that

Well they have already missed the Q1 group target :unamused:
I’m surprised its not priority, it would reduced API calls, devices installed as people will only install the group and not every bulb in most cases which will all save money for them and hue

I know, I really wish they would at least let us know about any progress on that.

@tmleafs Do you have any idea why the HueBSmart app/DH have stopped working with webCoRE? I have them timed and they don’t come on automatically anymore. The trace says it ran but it doesn’t turn the specified lights on.

I’ll get you a log in about an hour where the bedroom lights are supposed to come on and don’t either.

Everything else is fine, just not timed lighting.

I have a feeling that I should be talking to webCoRE support but I figured I would put you in the loop as well.

NEVERMIND…

It was a problem with my reverse proxy. I accidentally deleted the rule for the hue bridge.

[Transfering message from old thread]

I’m having trouble with setup. I get my bridge connected, and things seem to work fine on the “Manage Bridge” screen. However, when I click into “Choose Scenes” the only link that works is “Back to Bridge”. Attempting to click on any other links (including all of the “Add” links) does not generate any log entries.

I played around with adding some new href tags that link to the same page, and it seems like the current SmartThings app is ignoring links to the current page (even if the params change).

Note: I did reboot my SmartThings hub, and nothing referenced here changed.

Minimal logs seem to be configured for this page - so I’m not sure including logs will help. I added some logging myself, but could not find anything suspect. I also added a link at the bottom back to the previous page - and that functioned (so it is something specific to linking to the same page).

Regardless, here are full logs for my session (using a clean, unmodified version of the 1.83 code):

Thank you!

Just to make sure, have you tried doing that in the classic app?

That was the problem - thank you MrPancake!

I wish Samsung would ramp up their support so that there was no need to keep both apps around…
