Recently I installed a RGB CCT ledstrip over the full length of my living room. The dream is to use an Amazon echo dot with a harmony hub so I can start a movie activity by voice and the tv, receiver, firetv are all turned on, as well as the led strip.
I started out with ha-bridge server on my NAS, but when I stumbled upon Home Assistant I got a raspberry immediately.
The configuration was easy, however the light does not turn on and Home Assistant shows no errors.
- Milight LS2 ledstrip controller
- Milight FUT089 remote
- Milight iBox 2 wifi bridge
- Raspberry Pi 3B
- First tried out Hass.io, however found it difficult to debug with a distro so small, so installed Hassbian
- Hassbian (image of 11-10-2017) ran all the update scripts
- Home Assistant 0.60 latest update
I took the steps from Tim in his thread. Unlinked the led strip, Reset the wifi bridge, selected the FUT089 remote in the app (Milight v7.1.2) and linked the ls2 with zone 1.
The app controls the led strip just fine. So I took over the config from Tim and changed the ip and bulb type.
# Milights light: platform: limitlessled bridges: - host: bridge_ip version: 6 port: 5987 groups: - number: 1 name: led type: rgbww
The light shows up fine in the dashboard, but when switching it on/off nothing happens. The history show the light has been turned on, the log shows no errors, but the ledstrip does nothing.
I gave the bridge a static ip in the router, so it’s the correct ip.
