Logitech Harmony Light Buttons (Hue compatible) to control IKEA lightbulbs paired with Tradfri Gateway


(Kalle) #1

Hello
I’m missing something here :slight_smile:

I have a working OpenHab2 installation (latest stable) with a IKEA Tradfri Gateway and some IKEA bulbs connected. (using the Tradfri Binding ofc). No problem.

But I also have a Logitech Companion (remote and hub) that supports a connection to a Philips Hue bridge to switch on/off Hue-connected bulbs and power outlets.

So how can i make the Logitech remote control some of my IKEA bulbs?

I have installed the Hue Emulation Service, and the Logitech Hub finds/pairs to it without problems, but HOW do I get my IKEA bulbs there? Can they be paired to both my Tradfri Gateway and the HUE Emulator Service?

Any hints is most appreciated.

I’m using the Hue-Emulation 2.5 Binding and i’m controlling some homematic lights with the Logitech companion.

You only have to tag your Ikea bulbs with “SWITCHABLE” or “LIGHTNING”.

After your items are loaded again, you logitech HUB should find them as HUE lamps, and then it is possible to map them on the companion remote.

I’m using a “proxy” item for the companion, so i’m able to control 2 bulbs with one button.

Press_short and press_long will toggle two bulbs.

The tag is [ “Lighting” ] and not [ “Lightning” ] . :wink:
