[HomeKit] Fibaro RGBW Dimmer with openHAB homekit

Hi there,
I’m currently trying to get a colorwheel into the Home App.
I always left the config on “Dimmer”

Dimmer  SwitchDimmer_RGBWWohnLicht           "RGBW Dimmer"                       (EG_Esszimmer)                     {homekit="Lighting.Brightness",channel="zwave:device:xxxxxxxx:node22:switch_dimmer"}

Colorwheel should be possible with “Color” - no chance till now!
Tried configs without success:

Color   ColorColor_RGBWWohnLicht             "RGBW Farbe"                        (EG_Esszimmer)                     {homekit="Lighting.Brightness",channel="zwave:device:xxxxxxxx:node22:color_color"}
Color   ColorColor_RGBWWohnLicht             "RGBW Farbe"                        (EG_Esszimmer)                     {homekit="Lighting.Brightness",channel="zwave:device:xxxxxxxx:node22:color_color"}
Color   ColorColor_RGBWWohnLicht             "RGBW Farbe"                        (EG_Esszimmer)                     {homekit="Lighting.Hue",channel="zwave:device:xxxxxxxx:node22:color_color"}
Color   ColorColor_RGBWWohnLicht             "RGBW Farbe"                        (EG_Esszimmer)                     {homekit="Lighting",channel="zwave:device:xxxxxxxx:node22:color_color"}
Color   ColorColor_RGBWWohnLicht             "RGBW Farbe"                        (EG_Esszimmer)                     {homekit="Lighting.OnState.Hue",channel="zwave:device:xxxxxxxx:node22:color_color"}
Color   ColorColor_RGBWWohnLicht             "RGBW Farbe"                        (EG_Esszimmer)                     {homekit="Lighting.OnState",channel="zwave:device:xxxxxxxx:node22:color_color"}

So I guess thats all config the documentation has :laughing:
Anyone did successfully configured any RGB or RGBW controller
Not talking about HUE bulbs!! :money_mouth_face:

Thanks for any hint!

You may want to look in the file “openhab.log” to see what went wrong :wink:

From what I see in your posting you seem to try to combine Homekit with ZWave. I don’t think that is possible. If you have a ZWave controller, configure it as a ZWave thing (leave off the homekit part in the curly brackets).
In my case (a Fibaro RGBW-Controller-2) it looks like this in the items file:

Color  Wohnen_RGBW_Farbe1    "Wohnen RGBW Farbe1"      <info>     (gWohnZi)  { channel="zwave:device:xxxxxxxx:node49:color_color1"}

If you could give us more information (hardware OH is running on, OH version in use etc,) we could help you much better.

you need to add Hue and Brightness at the same time
e.g. my config

Color bookshelf_light_color "Bookshelf Light" (gShelflight) {homekit="Lighting.Hue, Lighting.Brightness, Lighting.Saturation", channel="shelly:..."}
