    The missing values will be added in the next version of the plugin. This is caused by differences between the Philips bridge and the deCONZ gateway. You can use the reported values in events, it will be converted once the new version is there.

    If you are using version 2.x.x.x of the plugin there is no dimmer option in the configuration page anymore. If you check the currect documentation you will also see there is not option anymore?

    Thanks,

    Wim

    I should also add that I don't get a dimmer option in the plugin configuration.

    I'm experiencing the same issue. Latest hue bridge (updated) and hue dimmer switch. I don't have a battery device listed, but I do have the dimmer. When I push the buttons it cycles through 1000,2000,3000,4000.

    Are you using the Hue bridge or deCONZ?
    The statusses you are seeing are the same as the descriptive statuses you are missing. I am thinking that the Philips bridge sends a different stats compared to the deCONZ gateway....

    Let me know what bridge you are using?

    Thanks,

    Wim

    Has this been resoveld. I was able to use dimmer switch for scenes before the lastest update. Now I can see dimmer and battery status. If I push a button on the dimmer it switches from 4000,3000,2000, and 1000. Depending if I hit on,off, or dim. I no longer get the status like on,off,dim, hold dim, etc...

    The problem was solved when i moved away from the Philips bridge and over to ConBee/DeCONZ bridge instead.

    Can you do the folowing for me if you have the time for it?
    • On the configuration page - tracing options, enable detailed trace and log to file
    • Stop the plugin and start it again
    • After the plugin is fully started, press some buttons on the dimmer switch
    • disable detailed trace and log to file again
    • send the file [HS3 installdir]\Logs\JowiHue.log to me?


    Send it to my mail address w dot vuyk at upcmail dot nl?

    Thanks,

    Wim

    Wim
    Did try that already. Twice.
    When it recreates the device it picks up the correct status, but only at creating point. Still no change in status after that.

    When i delete the 'Device' is automaticaly delete the 'Battery'.

    Just checked. The Harmony plugin does not show the 'Light' control buttons on the remote, so HS3 cannot see these buttons.
    So the Harmony hub will have to keep these functions. But that will properly not work, when the Hue is moved to the ConBee.

    I just did some more testing on creating the devices for the Hue dimmerswitch, but I am not seeing the errors you were seeing? Was there something more involved at that moment?

    Not sure what you meen with 'more involved'.

    My Hue bridge is the first model and i 'only' have 2 white hue a Go and the dimmer.

    I have a Harmony Companion Hub that also can control the Hue. Harmony->Hue bridge. Will be looking at removing this, and redo it in HS3.

    Hopefully i will recieve the Conbee shortly and move the installation to that.
