I’m trying to keep my apps as user friendly as possible. Going back from discovery to manual adding would be a step in the wrong direction. As far as I know there is not a fallback for manual adding if discovery fails (or in this case not possible due to complex networking).
You could try and see if the disovery of all the devices works using the underlying nodejs library directly. Check it out here: magic-home - npm
As mentioned in my app description, it could be some devices are not discovered because of (for me) unknown devices types. If this also does not find the devices you are out of luck. You could fork the repo and create a manual pairing wizard yourself if you really need this.
Support for the pixel would be great but pixel uses some different app i believe. You could do a app request at github (link should be here somewhere). … if someone makes it i’ll most definetly order a pixel led strip…
It will probably work with WS281x LED strips but as far as I know the controller can only handle one color. It’s just some misleading advertising on Aliexpress if you ask me. Although it works you wont be able to actually set individual colors for LED’s on the strip. You are better off buying cheap 5050 LED strips when using a Magic Home LED controller.
Although it would be interesting to try out one of those Pixel LED controllers and see if it actually works with WS281x strips (Neopixel) or even APA102 strips (Dotstars).
Hi. First of all, thnx for this app.
Unfortunately I’m having some issues with a RGBW controller with RF. This controller works via the magic home app itself, but not via Homey. I also have RGB controller with RF and that one works just fine in the magic home app and Homey. Can you help?
