I bought a OSRAM switch mini (Amazon Link ), and after some hassle I managed to link it to my hue bridge. This means, as per the FAQ of the OSRAM website (see 5.3), it now controls all devices connected to my hue bridge (that being two lights and a smart plug). Since it’s a third party switch, not included in “friends of hue”, it doesn’t show up in my hue app or the hue essentials app.
I was hoping I could use my Home Assistant to reconfigure the remote by intercepting the events it sends, however when I listen to
hue_events in the developer tools, no events show up when pressing the remotes, despite my lights turning on/off etc. Am I listening to the correct event type, or would I be able to find these events elsewhere? I’d think at least some event would be send via my hue bridge considering the lights are controlled.
I did find a blueprint for the remote, however it does not include a hue integration connection (and I don’t have any of the other integrations set up in my home yet, my hue bridge is my only Zigbee device). I tried brute forcing the blueprint to work, however that didn’t work out, I think because the hue bridge works on a ZLL protocol instead of the asume ZHA -or similar- protocol from the blueprint?
Anyway, if someone has an idea on how to intercept (or succesfully listen) to the events from the switch, that would be greatly appreciated.
