Hmmm, it’s not working for me, is there anything I can do to help troubleshoot? I’ve imported the blueprint, I am able to select the Rodret dimmer remote which paired with HA (via ZHA), I have used an existing hue light which I already know is working via existing hue remote controls or manual HA control.

I am just trying to do some more troubleshooting currently.

I’ve tried deleting the switch in HA, resetting, re-pairing the device and trying to control different lights but nothing helps :(.

Hey,
Did you check the automation history? To see if it’s triggered properly.

No it’s not triggered sadly when I press the selected IKEA remote buttons.

I have just updated to the latest HA (only around a month newer), still the same. Here is my debug output, how does it compare to yours please? It seems to match up with your code. Perhaps this one is faulty there is always that I guess… I have another I will try.

Thanks

Hi,

Since the last core update it now works for me (I had the same issue as you).
You should check !

Thanks. I just paired the other one today and all is working great straight away so thanks so much for this blueprint. It works great and the kids are very happy now.

There was an immediate difference in the pairing process. I’ll try the existing one in a minute after resetting it again. (press 4 times quickly on reset button - wait for flashy red light show - for anyone reading)…

Edit. Yeah the first one I tried still doesn’t work. Stuck on the configuring stage but shows up as a normal added device etc. I am going to guess it’s a faulty device.

Edit 2. I preserved and done the classic, or at least my classic ZigBee reset of pressing the buttons loads and also holding it down for luck sometimes and by some miracle it managed to fully pair this time. Seems like quite a “sticky” device for resets / pairing perhaps? With this first one it didn’t need resetting to pair out of the box but the 2nd one did. HA was updated to a couple of months newer version between so that doesn’t help conclude where the issue was.

Hey people,

New release with Z2M support is here :sparkles:

Check the :blue_book: first post to download the blueprint

@damru : THANK YOU.

If I can assist improving Documentation, UX/UI … just let me know by pm/pn. “I’m the normal one.”

Credits to Simon42 (German !!!):

Simon gave me the final kick in my … to leave ZHA and jump over the cliff to Zigbee2MQTT.

I went with ZHA due to the name and the expectation that ZHA would prosper and integrate better in HASSIO. Mistake … Big Mistake.

Zigbee2MQTT is by far best choice.

@damru
How does your Hold on / Off selections look like on yours?
I tried different things and nothing seems to happen when I hold down the on and off button on my RODRET.

The same goes for the double and triple click :confused:

The pairing went fine and it looks like correctly exposed in Z2M.
But so far I have only been able to get the turn on and off feature to work.

Thanks for this. Love the simplicity. I would LOVE it though if you could choose the color temp too. I want the on function to always turn to a set brightness, and set temp (not the last color used)
