Bluesound for Homey
App Store Page: Bluesound App for Homey | Homey
Bluesound is an award-winning wireless hi-res sound system that lets you play music in any and every room throughout your home. With this app you can use Homey to control your Bluesound devices.
Add the device as you would add any device to Homey. Enter the IP address of the device (can be found in your router or the settings of the device itself), the port it listens to (default is 11000) and the polling frequency (default is 100). The polling frequency is not related to the update frequency of data in Homey, as this is almost immediate, and therefore can be left at the default to reduce network traffic.
I’ve added my NAD T777 v3 as a device, It can connect, but after 1min or so it becomes unreachable.
Have to remove it, and ad it again, but then it becomes unreachable.
This behaviour came with the latest update.
I can reach the unit with my browser without any issues.
Hmmm, I don’t own this device myself so I can’t test updates. I have updated some node modules, perhaps there is now an issue with one of these node modules resulting in connection issues. Do you know how to do a CLI install. I could create a custom version which shows more logging and point me in the right direction.
Never done it, but a quick google gave me this:
How hard can it be
I currently dont have time to make a version which spits out debug logging but you could already try with the current version. Perhaps it already shows an error.
EDIT: It worked for 5min this time with the version on github, now the unit is unreachable again
I have created a branch on Github with extra logging. Use the CLI install and the ‘athom app run’ command to run the app. You should then see the results in the console which will hopefully tell us what is going on,.
well isnt this typical, the branch u created works like a charm.
No drop outs since I installed it.
I haven’t changed any functionality in this branch. My guess is that it was a network hiccup of some kind. You should install the app version again to receive future updates.
v1.2.5 beta - 2018-09-08
REFACTORING: switched from request node module to node-fetch (reduced footprint from 7MB to 500kB)
I have released a version in the beta channel which reduces the size of the app a lot. Functionality has not been changed. But since I dont own a BlueSound device myself I can not test these changes. Could someone install the beta and let me know if everything is still working. Thanx in advance.
i’m on the beta channel on the 1.2.5 version. But my devices keep stating ‘Unreachable’ while if I visit the device via the browser, its perfectly working:
I tried restarting Homey and the app, but both of my bluesound devices keep being offline.
Are you familiar with command line installs? It would help a lot if you could run the app from the command line and tell me what the console says. Please use the debug tree for this on the apps repo.
Hi, i’m not familiar with the command line install. Is there any other way i can debug it?
Find somebody else who is familiar with the command line or get familiar with the command line …
Not really, this is the down side of creating an app without actually owning the device.
then i’ll need to find time to do so I guess.
where’s the cmd line guide?
While i didnt had time yet to do the cmd line test. I did try to add the device again and it gave me this error in the network console when I press the test-connection button:
btw. will a VPN to my network help you out testing?
Thanx, this points me in the right direction of the bug which has been causing the issues with the beta. I will release a new version with a fix soon.
v1.2.6 beta - 2018-09-21
- FIX: fixed a bug after refactoring
Could someone in beta test this and give me some feedback it work now.
