deCONZ which Thing Type is needed for Lidl Melinera LED wire?

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007f17494086e0>

Hi everyone. I got a LED wire from LIDL:

I added it to my deconz and it looks like the following:
“2”: {
“etag”: “2a2ebc860da85e200cfdb21953c2c741”,
“hascolor”: true,
“lastannounced”: null,
“lastseen”: “2020-12-04T12:37Z”,
“manufacturername”: “_TZE200_s8gkrkxk”,
“modelid”: “TS0601”,
“name”: “Color dimmable light 2”,
“state”: {
“bri”: 25,
“colormode”: “hs”,
“effect”: “none”,
“hue”: 65361,
“on”: true,
“reachable”: false,
“sat”: 254
},
“swversion”: null,
“type”: “Color dimmable light”,
“uniqueid”: “58:8e:81:ff:fe:d8:85:23-01”
}

From this JSON I would suggest that the following type is needed:
Extended Color Light (w/temperature) Extended color light extendedcolorlight

But for extendedcolorlight there are only the following channels: color, color_temperature.

Related to this thread: https://github.com/dresden-elektronik/deconz-rest-plugin/issues/3716 it is also possible to hand over an “effect”. But in the deconz binding description I can not find anything related to the effect attribute:
https://www.openhab.org/addons/bindings/deconz/

Is there another possibility to set effects for this device?

I am also unsure how the light should be switched on and off. Which item should be used?

Use the color channel. You can send on/off to color items.

But what about the effect attribute? Is it possible?

Working on it.

Thank you very much :slight_smile:

A test version is available with: <redacted, merged to main>

Please report if this works.

@J-N-K
I think it is not working, but maybe I missed something. Here are my thing, items and rule to test

extendedcolorlight Deconz_Licht_Weihnachtsbaum “Weihnachtsbaum” [id=“2”]

Group Licht_Weihnachtsbaum “Licht Weihnachtsbaum” (Wohnzimmer) [“WohnzimmerLicht”, “Equipment”]
Color Licht_Weihnachtsbaum_Color (Licht_Weihnachtsbaum) {channel=“deconz:extendedcolorlight:Wohnzimmer:Deconz_Licht_Weihnachtsbaum:color”}
Number Licht_Weihnachtsbaum_Color_Temp (Licht_Weihnachtsbaum) {channel=“deconz:extendedcolorlight:Wohnzimmer:Deconz_Licht_Weihnachtsbaum:color_temperature”}
String Licht_Weihnachtsbaum_Effect (Licht_Weihnachtsbaum) {channel=“deconz:extendedcolorlight:Wohnzimmer:Deconz_Licht_Weihnachtsbaum:effect”}
DateTime Licht_Weihnachtsbaum_LastUpdated “Batterieladung” (Licht_Weihnachtsbaum) {channel=“deconz:extendedcolorlight:Wohnzimmer:Deconz_Licht_Weihnachtsbaum:last_updated”}
DateTime Licht_Weihnachtsbaum_LastSeen “Batterieladung” (Licht_Weihnachtsbaum) {channel=“deconz:extendedcolorlight:Wohnzimmer:Deconz_Licht_Weihnachtsbaum:last_seen”}

And I created a rule to test it:

rule “a”
when
Item abcde changed
then

logInfo(“rules”, logPrefix + “Licht_Weihnachtsbaum_Effect hat sich geändert ({})”, Licht_Weihnachtsbaum_Effect.state)
Licht_Weihnachtsbaum_Effect.postUpdate(“waves”)
end

but there is no change on the led wire.

When I use postman to send a request:it is working.

The Colorpicker is working but I think there is a state problem:

2020-12-08 00:30:40.389 [INFO ] [smarthome.event.ItemCommandEvent ] - Item ‘Licht_Weihnachtsbaum_Color’ received command 112,57,50

2020-12-08 00:30:40.399 [INFO ] [rthome.event.ItemStatePredictedEvent] - Item ‘Licht_Weihnachtsbaum_Color’ predicted to become UNDEF

And the on off is not working. I thought on friday with the old version of the binding it worked, but I am not sure.

Please use discovery.

@J-N-K Did it now with discovery.
I can turn it on and off. I can change the color but the effect is not changing:
This is what I can find in the log

Please set the log-level to TRACE (log:set TRACE org.openhab.binding.deconz). Thanks.

For the on command it looks better

You need to send a command (sendCommand) not update the channel value (postUpdate).

I changed it to sendCommand but it is still not working

But I can not see something like
2020-12-08 17:20:19.361 [TRACE] [ernal.handler.DeconzBaseThingHandler] - Sending {“on”:false} to LIGHTS 2 via http://raspiwz:80/api/5B7030FEC2/lights/2/state

Are you sure the item is linked to the channel? It looks like the command is not received by the binding. If you select the item in the UI, what options do you see?

This is the thing I can see in my UI

image

In the karaf console I can see the following
Things
deconz:colorlight:Wohnzimmer:588e81fffed8852301 (Type=Thing, Status=ONLINE, Label=Color dimmable light 2 (_TZE200_s8gkrkxk), Bridge=deconz:deconz:Wohnzimmer)

items

I don’t understand that. I forced a light to add an effect channel (although it doesn’t support it, that why there is an error at the end):

What I did: Add the bridge, discover things and add the thing. Add an item in UI to the effect channel. Then clicked on the item (either in item view or in model), After I clicked on the “state”-display, a command list on the bottom opens. If I select a command from that, it gets send immediately:

19:25:46.241 [INFO ] [smarthome.event.ItemCommandEvent     ] - Item 'BettlampeEssaIKEAofSweden_EffectChannel' received command none

I can set the effect state in OH, however when I change the effect state outside openhab, the widget won’t reflect the new state:

‘{
“etag”: “bb4bd4ffc17af821046fe50266b6f9a9”,
“hascolor”: true,
“lastannounced”: “2020-12-04T16:25:10Z”,
“lastseen”: “2020-12-08T19:04Z”,
“manufacturername”: “_TZE200_s8gkrkxk”,
“modelid”: “TS0601”,
“name”: “Color dimmable light 39”,
“state”: {
“bri”: 254,
“colormode”: “hs”,
“effect”: “glow”,
“hue”: 7100,
“on”: true,
“reachable”: true,
“sat”: 122
},
“swversion”: null,
“type”: “Color dimmable light”,
“uniqueid”: “58:8e:81:ff:fe:f1:91:1b-01”
}’

The effect glow is now active on the LED strip but the widget still reports “none” as state.

Ah ok. That‘s a different issue. My understanding was you couldn’t control the Strip. I‘ll check the other direction.
