I had the same issue when scanning for zigbee packets with Ikea Tradfri. The solution on my end I found by chance when switching the scanning channel from 11 to 15. Apparently the commissioning process switches channels during ZLL touchlink. My Ikea bulb responded to the "Scan Request" with "Scan Response" on channel 15, whereas all the other traffic ...

As per OSRAM Lightify Public API In order to call the API endpoints you will need a set of valid client_id and secret_id. North America (NA) developers go to https://na-developers.lightify-api.com Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) developers go to https://emea-developers.lightify-api.com You will need a Lightify account in the region (NA or EMEA) to ...

You can’t and don’t want to. First the “can’t” reason for the United States: While not every light and switch in residential dwelling units is considered required lighting, at least one light and switch in every room is required lighting and must have a switch at the door in the US to follow the National Electrical Code. Lighting outlets in dwelling ...

Insteon components can be used stand-alone without a hub. Purchase any combination of dimming plugin module, on/off plugin module, or duplex outlet (dual control-each outlet can be controlled separately or linked together). Replace a wall switch and link it all together manually. You will get exactly what you asked for, the ability turn on/off one ...

Here's one way to get some info from your bridge. When an app sends commands to the bridge, it uses a unique id. A whitelist of these ids is kept in the bridge, along with the time each id was created and the last time it was used. Ideally, it also contains the name of the app, but some developers put some other word in the place they're supposed to put ...

There are plenty of Zigbee switches that will allow you to control lights. They range from very basic (On/Off) to more complex (dimmer, or multiple buttons for multiple scenarios). Some are battery-powered, others are even battery-less (Zigbee Green Power) and use the energy from button presses to power themselves. Some are designed as small remote controls ...

Insteon: Single wireless Wallswitch remote. Plug in module w/dim. Those are the only two parts you need. They can be linked (programmed) manually. Adding a hub adds control from a smartphone and makes programming easier (although a simple two device system as above is very easy manually anyway). There are also multi-button wireless switches and many ...

I guess, this solution is even better. https://www.easyfit-controls.com/easyfit-for-bluetooth-lighting-systems/ BLE switch module that doesn't need power at all because it harvest the energy from pushing the switch. It's freely configurable but it isn't really a ready-to-go setup for any smart plug as it requires manual NFC interfacing. Probably there are ...

There are plasctic switch covers you can put on over your traditional switch. They are covered in the front to prevent accidental toggles, but open on one side so you have access if you need it. I have several on switches that I've put smart bulbs on. Here's one example: Style Selections 1-Gang Clear Single Switch Guard Wall Plate

Your Lightify account username and password should be sufficient to get you into the developers API area. There you can create a new client which will generate your client ID and password. The new process (since 4/1/2018) is oAuth2, so you'll need to set up a receiving page on a server to get the access code from the login process, then use that to get the ...

A really quick google (tp-link bulb api) turns up a npm module that claims support: https://www.npmjs.com/package/tplink-lightbulb They are unlikely to be officially supported by given there is discusion of reverse engineering the protocol, it even includes a wireshark plugin to help decode the network protocol. The only way to get a definitive answer will ...

Switching it on and off probably won't help as the configuration is probably saved into non-volatile memory. You do not want to reconfigure your device after every blackout or such. Your other chanse would be the hard reset feature added in release 1.6.7 but that would require a button and as per the espurna/config/hardware.h file, the AI-Thinker AI Light ...

Of course there is, the platform is called IFTTT. Here is the link where it allows you to use the Hue: IFTTT & Hue

If you just want lights and sockets, IKEA have just added Smart Sockets to their Trådfri range. They have a range of different bulbs and include on/off control, dimmers and multifunction (dim/on/off/colour temp). The whole system runs on Zigbee and can include an optional hub that allows control via an App/Alexa/Google Assistant/Apple Homekit. The hub also ...

The commands e.g. on/off, set brightness are all handled in the language the device is set to. They are then converted to a set of enum values that are passed to the backend for control as part of a JSON object. The Google Home Smart Device API is here for a list of available commands and what gets passed: https://developers.google.com/actions/smarthome/ As ...

It sounds like the zigbee2mqtt project may be exactly what you are looking for. The main purpose is to be able to run your own server rather than have to use a commercial cloud service, but still allows you to use commercial devices. It also allows you to use generic CC253x hardware that can be obtained from AliExpress. It seems to be a pretty active ...

(Based on my answer from the original Home Improvement question but changed to match the slightly altered question here.) I expect most of the zigbee based systems work locally, Philips Hue and Ikea Trådfri stuff does. I think your problem is with Alexa. (We can clarify if you give details of what system you're using.) Assuming you have or change to a zigbee ...

The Mozilla IoT wiki made note of this exact problem. If you have problems resetting the plain white (non-colour) IKEA bulb, try making the "ons" very brief (less than a second) and the "offs" longer This solution worked well for me, and I was able to reset them without much trouble after trying it.

The most obvious suggestion is to ensure that each switch location should have a neutral wire available. Either that, or you arrange the wiring to accommodate relay banks in an accessible location. The question of smart and physical switches is complex, probably most restricted by safety concerns (that switch state should be persistent through a power ...

If you don't need it to be actually WiFi (802.11) but just wireless then the Ikea Tradfri range of bulbs do what you seem to be asking. They are ZigBee based but don't need a hub (though can use one). You can pair with 3 different types of switch simple on/off (with press/hold for dimming) rotary dimmer switch 5 button switch (on/off button, dim up/dim down ...

You can write a API, and make that api which can communicate with smart bulb so if you tether with that bulb you can have the option to increase brightness and you can reduce as you want & also you can set the color as you like.. Note: for that purpose you should know to decode and deploy that smart bulb with your code, if you do this you can select as ...

In the meantime I found a solution, which also changed the design: There are some 24V-Led Bulbs (even for E14) available in most LED electronics shops online (even on A****n) As LED-driver I will use the DALI protocol with its special drivers. In my case with constant voltage As control unit there are DALI masters available in said shops. Schematics for ...

Google Assistant Smart Home Actions has a Trait called lighteffects which can be used to supply what you need. This is something the lightbulb supplier will need to implement as it's a property of the device that the service needs to report to Google when it asks for the capabilities.

There has been a lot going on with using MQTT in home automation. Check out the zigbee2mqtt project that allows you to control commercial home automation devices like the ikea TRÅDFRI Wireless control outlet with your own server.

Why not use a mobile app. When the user logs into his account, he must see only his room and connected devices which he can then interact with. The connectivity could be established through internet or if you want it to be more local may be through blue-tooth/ zigbee/zwave etc. In addition, if you don't want any user login and authentication and want to give ...

Both Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa allow you to create "rooms" and add both devices and smart speakers to those rooms. Once you do this the systems will infer the room name when you talk to the smart speaker in that room so if you say: "OK Google, turn on the lights" It will turn the lights on in the current room. This does mean buying something like ...

I've done this with a Sonoff smart relay from Aliexpress. Link all terminals of both the smart switch and the normal wall switch. Feed power into the "1" or Normally Open contact, and take the load out of "2" or Normally Closed contact Power | | 1 -------------------- 1 C-----------------C 2 -------------------- 2 | | Light it has one drawback: the ...
