I have 4 Ledenet controllers. I ordered two of them in the beginning of 2019, and some last month.
The first two are v6 (according to the Smart Home app), and the last two are v8.
The two v6’s are working flawlessly, but the v8’s are not working well.
They cannot be turned on from the dashboard, but they sometimes turn on via automations.
The colors and brigthness that the LED strips show are wrong as well, it should be orange yet sometimes it’s only red or a tint between orange and red. The brightness in the automation is set to maximum but they only appear to light up 50% (if they turn on).
I use the same LED strip for all 4 controllers, so it’s not an issue of the colors being wrong because of different strips.
Hassio also usually reports them as being off, while they are on.
Turning off via automations does seem to always work.
Also, using the Magic Home app I can perfectly turn them on/off and set the colors.
So this seems to me something in the v8 update of the controllers broke something in Hassio.
How can this be fixed?
If there is anything I can do to help test/fix this, let me know.
I ordered all 4 from this Amazon page:
Thanks in advance!
This seems to have fixed it for me, although name detection doesn’t seem to properly work.
