I have several MagicHome based RGBW Wifi controllers that work well. I recently ordered a pack of 4 more, and those are barely working within Home Assistant at all. The UI within the MagicHome app is different for the new ones, but otherwise they work fine in the MagicHome app. From Home Assistant, I can turn them on and off (even though it says “Failed to call service light/turn_on” and doesn’t change state immediately) but cannot change colors or send any other commands to them (get same error message). I have tried adding the ‘ledenet’ protocol without any change.
The older controllers that appear like this in the app work well:
The newer controllers that appear like this do not work:
When I view device settings within the app, the older controllers (a couple years older) display the MAC address followed by a “v4”, where the newer devices are followed by a “v1”. Not sure what that version number is for. The older controllers have a firmware version of 4.v4.17.6445-A and the newer ones have firmware 6.v1.2.7386-A.
Any ideas why Home Assistant cannot control or set colors for the new controllers? Is there another protocol I could try, or any other ideas to get them working?
