I’ve previously talked on this forum about a UK home automation system called “Lightwave” and their systems:
Since then, we’ve had the Home Assistant HomeKit-Controller component come out, and I was hoping this would allow me to control the paired devices paired to this “Lightwave LinkPlus” hub through HomeAssistant.
This is where I’ve got to so far:
If I reset the Lightwave Link Plus and reboot Home Assistant (Hassio in my case) the discovery component finds it, and I am able to put in the HomeKit code to pair it. Nothing much happens then, as no devices are paired to the hub yet.
Their companion app finds the hub, and I can pair a light switch to it.
An item will show up in Home Assistant called
light.link_plusand it will have an on/off and dim state:
It shows up as an item in the UI, and can be triggered.
It seems to trigger the light in my Kitchen to come on. However, as I only currently have ONE Lightwave switch, I don’t know if it’s seeing an individual switch, or it’s just triggering “all” to on and off. I need to test this further.
Also, it seems to trigger the device, then the switch will turn straight off again in Hass:
[EDIT: Apparently animated GIFs don’t work on here: Just imagine I click the switch to ‘on’, it stays on for a few seconds, then turns itself off! ]
Anyone got any ideas on how I can investigate/troubleshoot this further?
I’d love to test this further, as this is a great Home Automation solution for those of us in the UK.
