Addig Homey Bridge as a extender to Home Pro 2023?

I’d rather wait for the next stable version. I just set up the Homey and I would think it would be a shame if it suddenly became unstable. I turned off my domoticz yesterday so there is no longer a backup…

It’s not a bad idea to wait for the stable release :wink:
One thing I noticed, but I assume you pressed the transmit button many times already, AFTER you connected the bridge as satellite succesfully:

Thanks Peter, yes I did.
I solved it for now with a kaku repeater that I had for the garden :slight_smile:

Thanks for the tips and I’ll wait for the answer from Homey. I posted a question about this.

Kind Regards,

Let us know the response from Headquarters :wink:

Here is the response: (in Dutch)
Het klopt dat op dit moment de Bridge nog niet als ontvanger gekozen kan worden. Development is hier van op de hoogte en dit is gedaan zodat je geen situaties krijgt waarbij beide de Bridge en de Pro hetzelfde signaal ontvagen en dus twee keer acties gaan uitvoeren. Er moet hier dus nog naar gekeken worden hoe dit opgelost gaat worden. Het staat dus wel op de roadmap maar we kunnen nog geen garanties geven of en wanneer en in welke vorm dit geïmplementeerd zal gaan worden.

Thanks for sharing.
The roadmap is apparently marked too optimistically :woozy_face: while RF 433MHz is marked as finished
Although the complete Pro 2023 is still “early access”, so these kind of issues are ‘allowed’ I guess :grimacing:

is there any progress on this that someone knows of ?
10.0.0-rc.118 installed but no homey bridge in the zwave list yet :frowning:
running with my old homey pro as a interim solution but would like to move it to another location and do more useful work there :slight_smile:

Link to roadmap here:

It’s still Q1 for a few days

When the bridge got a factory reset, was installed as satellite, and it would not act as zwave router, I think you’d inform support

YM “Q2”.

Duh! :crazy_face: Coffee shortage here :smile:

hey it’s August. I bought the Homey Pro 2023 and 2 H Bridges as satellites. I added a satellite in my garden shed 20m away from the Pronates where I have full wifi (mesh), but the bridge can’t connect to the Homey Pro. Questions…:

  1. how does the H Bridge connect to the H Pro? what protocol?
  2. What is the max distance
  3. When will it support Zigbee?


  1. WiFi for Infrared and 433Mhz and some minor other data.
    Z-Wave for Z-Wave (it is just a router)
    Future: ZigBee for ZigBee (it is just a router)
  2. Depends on the used protocol and how good your other meshes is besides WiFi
  3. It is done when it is done, no one here knows, and maybe not even Athom as the first message was first quarter this year, which is far over.

Any news about this (hopefully) coming update? Or is it time to think of another workaround?

Just returned my Homey bridge (installed in satellite mode) because it did not extend 433 MHz receiving range, for example the IR-sensor AWST-6000.
To prevent Homey Pro ànd Homey bridge to trigger both a flow from a received signal, could be simply solved by allowing to indicate which antenna to use for receiving. Just like it is already implemented for sending 433 signals.

And does the bridge extend the receiving of 433 signals?

Honestly, I bought the bridge to extend the receiving distance of the Kaku switches and found out today that it is not working. So I will check it out with customer service, but otherwise I will send it back.

@Erik2 I don’t use it but did you tried this?

Hi Mike,
thanks for the tip, but yes I did.
So for some devices I can select the antenna, but for the kaku wall switch(amwt003) it seems not to work(yet?).
If someone has a solution, that would be nice! I wil keep you updated with the answer from Homey support.

I was worth the try.
Hopefully they have an answer.

Currently I can only select the antenne for KaKu devices that are receivers. So Homey is the sender.
For KaKu devices which are senders, like AMWT-003 or AWST-6000, Homey is the receiver, and I cannot select the antenne. I have send back the bridge and after having a discussion with support, bought it again. To convince support it does NOT work. It is too easy to confuse transmitters and senders :wink:
