[APP][Pro] Plejd

So I finally pulled the trigger and bought a HP2023.

First, let me thank Emil for all the work he has put into this. The Plejd app has really been working great on my HP2019.

With that being said, should I expect some difficulty with Bluetooth in general on the HP2023? I seem to recall reading about it like 6 months back.

Since 6 months is a a lifetime in software development I am reaching out to others that use HP2023 with Bluetooth and especially Plejd to learn from your experiences.

Still the same, no BLE improvements in the firmware for months

Thank you for the reply. Is it your opinion that I should keep running my old HP2019 and hold off on installing the new one or are the issues minor?

Unless you will see again updates with regards to the BLE stack, I must say unfortunately - yes.
I don’t have Plejd mesh device, however the issues that were reported, were not minor - the Plejd has to be literally in few cm away from Homey 2023 to get it working reliably. That was however 3-4 months old finding, maybe someone else can provide more details.

I had issues with Xiaomi Flora devices and implemented workaround as HP2019 was booting already for me 20 min, it was showstopper and I had to switch over to HP23. Now I got Xiaomi Flora integrated via ESP32 and had 0 issues with it. In parallel I keep running old integration … for 5 months no connections.

Hello.
Great app @Emil_Ohman!

But i have a request.
Is it posible to add a card that increses/decreses dim level over time?

I think philips hue have this card. Dim to 50% over 10 sek.

I have a dark basment and a motion sensor that triggers a pledje dimmer. It goes to 60% instantly, looks a lot cooler if it goes from 0-60% over 5-6 sek.

Keep up the good work!

Hello,
Does the Plejd motion sensor work with Homey Pro?

You can use transitions from the chronograph app to do that.

I now took the plunge and installed my Homey 2023.

I am very happy to report that the Plejd devices work even better than before. Now, I do have quite a few of them so my guess is that you do need a strong mesh to be on the safe side.

@Emil_Ohman A BIG thank you to you!

Of all the protocols Plejd with BT using your app was the only one that just worked without me doing anything at all after upgrading! Impressive!

Hi.

Homey “homey5q” here (2023).
I just installed my first Plejd device, and it is not showing up in my Homey. It just has the status message
“Device Unavailable
Connecting to Plejd BLE mesh”

The device is a “VRI-02”.

EDIT, please disregard. After an hour of thinking, and without any input from me the system came up.
Smooth sailing so far then, nice app :slight_smile:

I’ve added a setting so you can toggle dimmable support per device in the latest version 3.4.0.

In the latest release I’ve added support for scenes. Scenes can be used to trigger events based on double-clicks.

Make sure you have your username and password saved in the Plejd app settings so that the app is able to fetch available scenes from your Plejd setup.

Scenes can be used to create flows triggered by double-click.

  • First, create a scene in the Plejd iOS/Android app and give it a name, e.g., for the button it will be used for (kitchen button 1).
  • To be able to save the scene, you must toggle a state in your Plejd mesh. You can either choose a device and state that you want to change or use a Plejd device, e.g., a SPR-01, that is dedicated to scenes and not used for anything else.
  • Once the scene is saved, you can connect it to a button that will trigger the scene on double-click.
  • Now, go to your Homey app, create a scene, choose the scene trigger card from this app, and select your Plejd scene from the list.

Great!
(Test still in regards to CRT-01 + RTR-01)

  • I just upgraded the app to 3.4.0 and I see that “Dimmable” shows up and is default set to Yes.
  • Still, dimmer slider does not show in app until I set Dimmable to No, save, set Dimmable to Yes, save.
  • When trying to dimm, I get error
  • Also, there are no flow cards for dimming …but I hope that will come in next version.

Thanks again!

:warning: Solved!
The solution was to install the device again - now everything works …including flow cards.
Might be a good reminder for all current users.

Thanks for reporting! Just published version 3.4.1 with a fix so you don’t need to reinstall devices.

Hi.
I just added a DIM-02 and it works fine to dim, but it also shows light_mode (color and ambience) which it doesn’t support.

Thanks for a great app.
