When using the scan nearby feature, I notice that all hue color bulbs get re-added; duplicating them. Does anyone know a way around this? Or a way to prevent them from duplicating?
When I log into the Smartthings IDE I can see one of them has a type of “placeholder” I was told that is due to the migration. The other device that is already present is the “LAN Hue Extended Color”. I did have all of the LAN Hue Extended Color ones removed, but the last time I hit “Scan Nearby” for a new edge driver I had installed, they all re-added.
If you add straight to the hub, I believe commands are processed locally?
I had mine on the hub and just got the message that I’m running low on memory, so I switched to the cloud connection. It was a pain to go through and update automations and such but I freed up 50+ devices from my hub.
I also read that having hue on the hub can cause interference with other zigbee devices.
So I am trying to just add my lights via the LAN, when i select the actual bulb under add device, it is bringing me into Philips hue to sign in. I think when I did this last time, that is when they all popped up.
