    The repeaters from IKEA are not exposing anything to the REST API. So neither Phoscon or the JowiHue plugin can see this as a device. The repeaters are only visible in the deCONZ interface like mikepetro showed earlier.

    AutomatedJim You are running deCONZ on the RPI3 I'd expect? You cannot connect to the RPI with VNC? As seeing the map deCONZ draws could confirm for you the repeaters are connected and also you culd see how the sensors are doing. With the LQI button set, you might even see where issues might arise? deCONZ always has to run locally to where the RaspBee or ConBee is connected as it communicates with the local devices.

      Wim,

      I setup the RPi without the desktop. Tried installing the desktop last night and VNC. I connect via VNC but to a blank desktop. So a bit of progress. I'll see if I can get the desktop to work, otherwise might rebuild on another RPi I have.

      Thanks,

      Jim

        I finally figured out (google) how to setup the desktop on the RPi3 and VNC to see deCONZ map. All 3 of the repeaters were on the network.

        w.vuyk Wim - I used your method which worked as described but I did have to rename them in HS3 which changed them in deCONZ too.

        Thanks to everyone for your help.

          Jim, sadly it does need to be renamed. It is a bit of chicken and egg discussion how this happens. I am working on a future change that will change the setup of parent/child relation. I am hoping (not promising!) that somehow the plugin can still retain the name after a rescan of devices. Again, not sure if this is going to work yet.

          But good to know you now can see the advantages of the deCONZ map Play with the LQI button, it will help you understand issues.

            I look forward to the parent/child changes.
