I can’t seem to get my Conbee 2 USB stick to locate my Tradfri bulbs. I’ll give you a breakdown of my setup:
So I started with a Tradfri Hub, a remote and 2 bulbs (the Ikea starter kit). I was able to pair these things up the traditional way and was able to get the Ikea Tradfri integration working fine to control the bulbs through HA.
I’ve decided to use a Conbee 2 USB stick instead of the Tradfri Hub in order to cut down on the number of hub type things I have to run, and to keep the bulbs off of the cloud.
Anyhow, I’m running Home Assistant in a Docker container (using docker-compose to spin up the container)
On my Docker Host, the Conbee Stick is located at /dev/ttyACM0, and I added a line in the docker-compose.yaml to pass that device through from the host to the container.
I use the configuration UI to add the ZHA integration and select the Conbee stick during the setup of the integration.
I tell the integration to add a new device and then turn the bulb off/on 6 times to put it into pairing mode (I suppose? it blinks and pulses for a while)
After the default pairing duration in HA (60 seconds I think) nothing happens. HA can’t seem to find the bulb.
I’ve physically located the bulb about 8 feet from the USB stick.
Am I missing a step somewhere? Anyone have some tips to help me get these bulbs paired with HA/Conbee 2?
If it’s important, the Tradfri Hub is still powered up and connected to the network, but the bulbs are no longer paired to it.
Would love some help!
