    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.

    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.

    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.

    Honestly have no clue as the only way I ever got them join was through DeConz.
    I couldnt get them to join any other way, tried Phoscon and Jowihue, neither did the trick.

    I added them by using "Permit Join" directly in Deconz.

    See this thread where I spoke more in depth about it.

    Thanks for the info. I can't run deCONZ as I'm using a RaspBee on a RPi3 headless. Hoped I could install deCONZ on a Windows machine and connect over the LAN, that hasn't worked for me.

    Can I assume by the light sequence I inscribed a few post ago that the repeaters are successfully joined?

    Thanks,

    Jim

    Does the light sequence I described mean it is paired?



    Sorry to be a pain but without any known confirmation via a Phoscon, JowiHue or a light sequence, I have no idea if it actually worked.

    Thanks,

    I run deconz as a fire daemon service on my win 2k16 server. The problem with this is that I cannot see the connection map unless I stop the service and run it manually. Saying that, you can only have one instance of deconz running at a time. This might also be relevant in your case as well. .

    2) Reset the TRÅDFRI Signal repeater holding pin for over 5 seconds.
    3) Once released the light blinks once,
    4) After a couple seconds pulsates, a quick bright/dim sequence 4 times.
    5) After that goes solid white.

    I have tried many methods from the link you sent, GitHub, nothing works.

    I tried:

    1) Clicked add new lights on Phoscon.
    2) Reset the TRÅDFRI Signal repeater holding pin for over 5 seconds.
    3) Wait a few seconds unplug it for 5+seconds.

    After plugging it back in the white light pulsates, a slow bright/dim sequence.

    If I try this:

    1) Clicked add new lights on Phoscon.
    2) Reset the TRÅDFRI Signal repeater holding pin for over 5 seconds.
    3) Once released the light blinks once,
    4) After a couple seconds pulsates, a quick bright/dim sequence 4 times.
    5) After that goes solid white.

    It never shows up on the Phoscon light page or in Jowihue.

    I have the deCONZ software for Windows. Can it connect from a Windows machine to the RPi3 over the LAN?

    Thanks,

    Jim

    I just picked up a few of the TRÅDFRI Signal repeaters today at Ikea. Tried joining it via Phoscon as a light and also from the JowiHue plugin. No success. Anyone have the correct way? Should I see the repeater on Phoscon or JowiHue?

    Thanks,

    Yes. Even when deleting a device in deCONZ and re-adding should still work for the plugin and reusing the same device. Also, when you have multiple bridges and moving devices between them should be no problem for the plugin, although naming does not always stick then.
