The milight globe ab296f32 is using lowercase for the remote code when the hub needs UPPERCASE

How do i change this?

please learn how to use code fences:

The issue you are having is covered in this section of the readme

The easiest way to get it setup is to use PaperUI to auto find and add the globes. Just control them first in the webinterface for the ESPmilight which you stated works, this adds the globes to the MQTT retained messages. Then when paperUI searches it will find the globes from MQTT.

I found them in the paperUI. But it doesn’t work.

I gave you the reason why, the thingUI is the wrong format the links I gave you explain why.

ab296f32 will not work.
ab296f32 is wrong.
ab296f32 is the cause.
