I finally got around to installing my blues this weekend and I had a few questions I thought I knew the answers to.
1 - Switch configuration
I have no issues with single-pole switches, but when I did three-way replacements, I guess I didn’t understand. I do have Neutrals and they are/were used. I tried using two Blues together but I couldn’t understand how to pair them together. The “Powered” switched and the traveler didn’t respond to each other, either off or on. I ended up just going the Blue with Dumb and got that configured and they seem work now in tandem. Is there something special that needs to be done for Smart and Smart - I looked at the diagrams and they match. I don’t mind going dumb switch as it saves some money but I’d like to be able to dim/control hue’s.
2- How do I get Blues to control Hue? I’m using Smartthings and Hue Bridge. I’d like for the Blues to control the Hues to dim, change color…ect. I do have some that are in a Three-way - Dumb setup currently but hoping to move those to Blue - Blue or Blue - Aux. Currently, all my switches are on/off. If I enabled - SmartBulb, the bulbs would no longer power on once they were off (the switch would show the status light as if it was on/off but the bulbs didn’t reflect that). I have some automations, outside of this, that modify the lights status but if they’re switched off, while in Smartbulb mode, the automations fail as the lights aren’t powered.
If binding is required - do I lose functionality from the Hue side of things?
3- I’m not able to disable the click. When going to settings on the switch, I set it to disabled but it’s still present
Nevermind, just found a topic on this and seems to be normal with Blue-Dumb setup, I’d need another blue/aux to allow the disablement.
