Homey / KNX issue


I have a problem with my Homey / KNX integration, and I hope someone here can help me.
I have connected my Homey Pro to my KNX system via a KNX / IP interface (Schneider SpaceLogic KNX IP interface). The IP interface is detected by Homey, and my KNX devices are also added to Homey. The KNX device statuses are updated in Homey when there is a change in the KNX system, but I cannot send commands from Homey to my KNX system. The interface works well with ETS, so there are no problems there.

Thanks in advance!

Best regards,

Are the switch addresses correct?

Hi Mark,
Yes… I’ve also checked the group addresses in ETS to be sure.

Hi Lars.

did you solve this problem.? Have the same problem, which KNX system are you using.?


Same problem with xxter KNX gateway. In addition to some (not all) sensor data i am able to ”almost” turn on switches - they switch on and off in the xxter Knx app but the real light remains off - no telegram seem to reach it. For dimmers nothing happens…. So basically same problem. Some indications that data is flowing between homey and Knx - but cannot send commands….


It seems I have te same problem.

Would you have found any solution or even explanation ?

Hi Guys,
Sorry for the late reply.

No, I have more or less given up hope for this to be resolved. It doesn’t even seems like the Homey team are interested in looking into this issue at all. I’m very disappointed both with the product and the support in this case, as they claim to have full connectivity to the KNX system.
So for me this “cheap” solution became expensive because I paid for something that I can’t make use of…


Hi Lars,

Disappointing indeed…
I got my homey pro only 4 days ago, so I still have 3 weeks to test and hope…
But otherwise, I guess I will return it :
Without KNX, there is no point keeping it for me :confused:

Hi Lars,

I don’t know if it can help you (or somebody else reading the post), but here is how it started to work for me
(Still some work to have it really working, but I could already switch a light from a flow)

I got the groupadresses by “watching” the bus, and at first, I hadn’t understood that both groupadresses of the lights themselves and of the switches were mixed together.

For example, when switching one of the light with the wall switch, I had 1/0/4, 1/1/4, 1/2/4 and 1/3/4.
So I have to figure each time which one is

  • the light switch address
  • the light status address
  • the switch switch address (very clear :slight_smile: )
  • the switch status address

Hi @LAAL , I have homey since July 2019. I bought it to substitute a terrible system received with my apartment. Under this system there was knx, so I choose homey because of the compatibility with knx. Open speaking I had very big problems in the first 6 month, extremely unstable. Then the situation improved a lot. Anyhow I decided to use shelly to controll of my heating and cooling systems, since knx + homey was not reliable enough. so now only lights are controlled via knx. I must say that in the last two months I saw again quite a big instability even if generally the system come back to normality without any activity. It remains however that during instability you can not command any lights (via homey) and this is very annoying. In my building we are six with homey and another things that definitely create problems are the routers of Vodafone. While I use my own router, my friend use the original of Vodafone. Each time homey restarts for any update, it looses the connection with knx ip interface and it needs several activities before you have again the system working. With my fritz I don’t have this issue. Then you are right, it seems that knx is not intersting for Homey teams and I’ve never found any real support each time I had problems. As I said at the beginning, in the last weeks I see that quite often knx devices start to get the red exclamation point, then after some minutes system is back again. Unfortunately if this becomes frequent you have system that is not responding and homey that I totally keen in reconnecting with knx adsorbing a lot of resources.

Hello Everybody,

The last weeks my homey knx (kit) has also become very unstable. Is there any progress in honey knx and/or the homey knx app?

Hopefully somebody can give any support.

Thanx a lot

Best Regards Johan

Is there any support on this subject?
I had a working system last week.
But in the last days I added more KNX devices and programmed a lot of advanced flows to copy the functionality of my Gira Homeserver 3 to Homey.
Now that I am ready, the connection between the homey and KNX is intermittent. Sometimes red exclamations or when I change the status of a device, nothing happens.
This is frustrating as flows need to preform there actions on the KNX.

Is there a limit on the # of KNX devices in Homey?
Is there a limit on the # of KNXbus telegrams that can be send or received?


Hi everyone

I think I got it working.

First of all, the KNX IP gateway can be installed on a DIN rail, but if that is within your electricity box, then your LAN cable is running next to the powerlines and can get interference.

Since I installed the KNX IP device outside my electricity box, the connection is more reliable.
Or you can use a shielded UTP cable that can run with the powerlines.

Secondly the KNX protocol is run as multicast. Your router and/or switch has to support multicast. Please find more info for your router how to enable or to tweak that.
