I’ve been trying to pair one of my illumin rbgw bulbs with SmartThings using the edge driver instead of the old drivers, but I can’t seem to get SmartThings to use the driver. I’ve gotten a coupe of switches moved over with no issue, but the bulb just doesn’t seem to want to play ball in edge. Any ideas?
Are you sure an edge driver for the bulb exists? I don’t use beta drivers, but according to Inovelli’s Github repository, the only beta Edge drivers published this far are for the switch and the dimmer.
Yes, at the moment to use edge drivers in an existing device you have to exclude it and re-add it to use the edge drivers. On the red series dimmer I moved it found the edge driver no issue, but every time I try to add the bulb it just uses the groovy one.
I had a thought that the fingerprint for the bulb may have been incorrect or missing, but that doesn’t seem to be the case. The fingerprints.yml file contains the following fingerprint entry, which seems to be correct:
Unfortunately, I don’t know enough about Lua to go beyond that, but thought I’d give it a shot.
Ultimately, Inovelli will write their own Edge driver, I think. Right now it’s just the red dimmer and switch.
Seems weird that Samsung would add an Inovelli fingerprint to their driver, but who knows. The driver also contains Aeotec fingerprints. I’m wondering what happens when Inovelli writes their driver and now there are two separate drivers for the same fingerprint . . .
Starting on Tuesday, April 26, 2022, ST will begin automatically binding to the Edge driver when a qualifying device is added to the hub. So you might want to try re-adding again after that to see what happens. ST mentions a rollout, so I’m not sure if every official Edge driver will be available immediately, so YMMV.
Sorry for the delay in responding; life came up :-/
So I was finally able to add the bulb using Edge Drivers. Apparently for some reason SmartThings was prioritizing the Groovy DTH over the Edge drivers. I ended up removing the DTHs for the LZW42 (and a few other DTHs I had added but didn’t need, like NZW39 and LZW41, as SmartThings decided to try those too…) It’s weird, because the Red series dimmers I moved over just added via the Edge driver even though the DTH was still there.
Now the only thing is that the bulb only recognizes white temp, but not color control. Correction, after force-quitting and reopening the SmartThings App, the color selection was there!
