Müller Licht tint remote

Forked from @Bram_Kragten 5 Button IKEA Remote blueprint.

Easily select the lights you want to control using the remote. Supports on/off, brightness, colour temp and RGB. Also, easily allocate a scene to each scene button on the remote.

Notes:
You need to add one of the lights you’ve selected to the ‘Colour Temperature Reference’. This overcomes a current shortcoming in blueprints and syncs all other lights colour temp to the chosen reference light.

You must select a scene for each button for the automation to work. Blueprints don’t seem to allow optional inputs yet.

thanks for this! I have some problems importing the button in deconz- are you using that or something else?

I’m using Deconz with Conbee II on RPi4. Added to switches section:

It’s possible to make this blueprint works with zigbee2mqtt?

I’ve managed to adapt the blueprint for the ZHA Integration.

However, none of the scene buttons triggers any event (at least none that I notice).
Do you have any advice for me how I can detect the occuring events?

This is the adapted blueprint I am currently using with the Livarno Lux lights from LIDL

Yes, you need to go to Developer Tools > Events, then enter zha_event into the ‘Listen to events’ box, then click start listening. Now press the scene buttons on the remote and you’ll get the event details.

That’s the way I did it for the other buttons. In the image you can see the output for the ‘reduce brightness’ button.
Before taking the screenshot, I also pressed all scene buttons (single/double/long press). Those do not show up at all, even when showing all events (’*’ as event type)

I’d say the issue would be with the ZHA support of the device. I find the Blackaddr list a useful resource for working out how well devices are supported by the various Zigbee options: Müller Licht Tint Remote Control 404011 Zigbee compatibility info (blakadder.com)

Hi!

I have imported your template. I was able to integrate the Müller Licht remote control via deconz without any problems.

I then used your template to create an automation and set all the scenes and entities.

However, when I trigger the automation, I get the following error message:

Error: UndefinedError: 'dict object' has no attribute 'event'

Now, unfortunately, I don’t know what to do either.

Can anyone help me?

Best regards!

hi, have you optimized the code for ZHA more? or is this definitive? if yes, can you share the new blueprint code? Thanks :slightly_smiling_face:

Just found this thread and it helped me figure it out. So in case you’re still looking, this is how you can catch the scene buttons:

          - '{{ trigger.event.data.command == ''attribute_updated'' }}'
          - '{{ trigger.event.data.args.value == 3 }}'

Hey there, is that code for zha or deconz? Where would I add it? Can I make the above blueprint work with ZHA? I tried vaincinders blueprint but the remote doesn’t show up in the device list of the automation

I am trying to get my remote to work but to no avail. If somebody could make a Tint ZHA walkthrough for dummies I’d be very thankful

Sorry didn’t see your message earlier. I went of vaincinders blueprint and adjusted it. What exactly are the issues you’re running into?

I added the remote through zha but with the blueprint it needs a remote to be set, but there isnt one.Could you maybe shre your solution so I can find where I went wrong?

EDIT: Seems I have the same issue as @MaSt above
EDIT2: One issue might be that I have added this via ZHA and not with deconz as stated in the blueprint. But I replaced deconz with zha, no luck. Still, the remote looks odd in HA.

Hi guys! I have the exact same model (ZBT-Remote-ALL-RGBW) which I paired with ZHA. However, when adding the blueprint and started to configure an automation based on the blueprint, my remote is not in the list if available remotes:

I do not know if the remote was added correctly. Someone had the same experience?

Is there in the meantime an update on this? I have the same problem as described above: using the bleuprint, I cannot select the remote to use.
The remote is paired succesfully via ZHA, and I can listen to the ZHA_Events

Hi there, i bought the remote and wanted to implement it in HA, i managed to connect it to deconz and its also showing in the area devices in HA, but when i want to use the blueprint i cannot select it. Also in Deconz it doesnt recognise the vendor MLI, it just has a number.

I have the same Problem!

Is there a solution?

Delete these lines and it will work, it seems to be picky on the spelling of the integration and names. But then it will show ALL devices. I just left the “manufacturer” line
