  • Here's something that might help

    From Gateway version 1.8.25 you can't use original PSK to connect to gateway anymore. You can only use it to create an application secret for your application which you can later reuse with it.

    Code:
    // recommended
    // This line should only be called ONCE!!! per applicationName -> you define applicationName as you want
    // Gateway generates one appSecret key per applicationName
    TradfriAuth appSecret = controller.GenerateAppSecret("GatewaySecret", "ApplicationName");
    
    // You should now save programatically appSecret.PSK value (appsettings) and reuse it
    // when connecting to your gateway every other time
    controller.ConnectAppKey(appSecret.PSK, "ApplicationName");
    
    GatewayController gatewayController = controller.GatewayController;
    var devices = await gatewayController.GetDeviceObjects();
    
    DeviceController deviceController = controller.DeviceController;
    await deviceController.SetLight(devices[0], true);
    await deviceController.SetColor(devices[0], TradfriColors.SaturatedRed);
    
    // same works for `controller.GroupController`

    • Thanks for the find, but Tr√•dfriSeer is already doing that.

      But I see the CSharptTradfriLibrary has evolved much, I might implement that instead of doing the heavy lifting myself. So thanks for the tip.

      • Since 17. june, my Tradfri does not work with my Homeseer.

        Anybody have the same issue?

        In the log i see a lot of these: Empty response from Hub with path = /15001

        IKEA HUB firmware: 1.8.26
        Tradfri plugin: 0.0.1.11

        • Yes, if you look at the last two pages, there's been some problems. It has been suggested to try to set up the plugin again (reset the credentials, etc, or even try to delete "TradfriSeer.ini"). My in-laws are using this plugin extensively, and I've had no problem with their setup.

          I suspect that Tradfri has done something during the last update that TradfriSeer does not like. I just have a hard time figuring out what. The empty response on path /15001 means that the plugin can't read from the hub because the hub is not authenticating the plugin (or the IP address is wrong).

          My own Tradfri box is still hidden in a box somewhere, we are currently rebuilding the house.

          • I've skipped ahead, for forgive me if I missed it.

            IKEA has been working on their motorized Z-Wave or Zigbee shades for a while and I've been waiting to see if they have dropped and if anyone has any input on them, their price (per foot, sq/cm) and battery life?

            • They should be released in Europe during "this summer", but who knows exactly when that will be. US release this fall, I think. (And they are Zigbee, not Z-wave)

                Thanks for the info, and now I'm glad I orderer both interfaces (Zigbee and Z-Wave for both of my units)! Future proofing

                • It will be end August.
                  Batteries will be charged via usb. How long the blinds will last on one charge I can't find.
