As we know the current apps for Homey are spotty at best and more and more device-apps are not being supported anymore they simply do not work and are outdated because of a developer that quits their Homey or loses interest.
thats why i’m trying to import al my devices trough alternative sources like Home Assistant or MQTT but as of today there isn’t much information how to do that.
What i’ve tried:
Official Homey Home Assistant App: Works, Nags about being available on homey but fine, does not work with blinds / covers / curtains and some devices only show their sensor. Also the app crashes allot while importing devices (because its a long list)
Community Home Assistant App: Works, edit “app.json” and change the app name so you can run it together with the official one. lacks update’s the “compound” feature is broken and adding (Hue) lights doesn’t detect the dim / brightness feature only on / off
MQTT app: doesn’t really work? i dont know how to import devices says something abount “statestream” but appart from a ITHO Fan i never got it working with home assistant itself.
Does anyone have good idea’s ? or maybe someone wants to help with updating the community app? i’ve tought about paying a developer to update the community app but i don’t know what the standpoint is on that with the community.
thank you for reading
