Is Amber Pro app working with Homey Bridge? Or do we need to make another App for Homey Bridge on Homey Cloud?

For now it’s not possible.

Because of these 2 things:

  • Amber Pro should be reachable via cloud. Because Local LAN is not possible.

  • To get this App in to the store we should have a verfied Homey Developer account. So that can be that Amber partners up with Homey. Or it should go via the app developer.

New app update (test: 1.2.1.):

  • NEW: add Router functionality - connected/disconnected devices


  • This only works when Amber Pro is set to DHCP mode.
  • This requires a router password in device settings


default is admin1234 or Admin1234, then you can change


But the FYI was because of the new APP functionality :wink:
