I recently bought a ConBee 2 to get rid of the ridiculous 10-devices-per-controller limit from IKEA. I plugged it in to my raspberry pi 3B+ (running hassOS) using a long usb extension cord in an externally powered usb hub. I then disconnected and removed the trådfri controller, and removed the trådfri configuration from my HA config.
This is what the setup looks like now:
I have added the necessary config to the Phoscon addon, and have verified that Phoscon has set a value for Version and Firmware in the Gateway-tab (meaning it should see it). I set the “timeout for scanning for new lights” to 3 minutes and tried to pair with my trådfri lights (start scan, reset lights using on-off 6 times), but it can only find 1 of them. The weirdest bit is that I have a multitude of lights, and the lights being the closest to the stick (luminating the image above) are not found but one of my upstairs bathroom spots is (though not all).
I have been pulling my hair for a few days now and I cant understand how to fix the problem. Initially I thought that the extension cord or the usb hub might be usb3, but if that was the problem I guess that it shouldn’t be able to find any lights? Can it be that the router or Google Home is blocking signals? Anyone with any other ideas?
