As I posted before… This is bugging me too! A simple ledvance dimmable E14 candle is not recognized bij Homey. Tried both the lightify app as the Hue app. Device is added as standard zigbee device NOT DIMMABLE! The Osram ledvance product line is rather limited compared to hue. How hard can it be to add devices??? Especially if there is a E27 version that already exists?
I contacted Athom support and they told me to contact Osram support. I had to ask support for Homey… ofcourse no answer from Osram…
I know @robertklep
But that is what Athom told me… I guess they need “help” in keeping up support for all non supported ledvance devices?
Anyway, I do understand why Athom asks me to contact Osram, but can’t say I was really pleased with the Athom answer on my support request
Hi, I am a new user to Homey and I am converting from the Klikaanklikuit control station. I tried to add my Osram Smart+ Zigbee motion sensors but to this moment I didn’t succeed.
Does anyone have an idea if the app is still being developed and new devices are being added? I saw that the last update was 1 year ago…
Hmm, on fortunately. I see however that @johan_bendz is a volunteer for the app? Do you expect that new devices get added to the app?
Aside of adding new devices, the app should probably be renamed to Ledvance because Ledvance is not allowed to use the Osram name anymore I’ve seen. So my motion sensors are probably ledvance sensors “under the hood”.
I have the impression that the Osram app is only rarely maintained. I’ve been waiting for the Surface lights to be integrated for ages. Since nothing has changed in the beta app, I will move my Osram to the ConBee stick, which immediately recognized the Surface. Maybe a tip for Osram / Ledvance victims.
Got a reaction from Ledvance: the integration with Homey is not their priority and it is something that Homey needs to do because it is a homey platform and not a ledvance platform. It is also not something that they want to do in the future.
So no help from Ledvance unfortunately.
I hope Athom can help us, or transfer the app to the community or something?
Well that is strange indeed, BUT… I don’t really see the problem with that. Standard zigbee can do 1 thing: on/off. What do you expect more from the outdoor plug? (I have on too!) And as the plug has no builtin power meter you’re not missing out a thing…?
Not sure if an app have extra benefit, besides a proper icon. Maybe some flow cards.
For the zigbee plugs indoor/outdoor there is not a single thing that would change except for the icon. I think that is why they won’t make an extra effort to release an update for this single issue. I do read between the lines they might add it in a next release of the app which will support new lights etc…
But again, for the plugs it won’t change a thing, just the icon.
