I have an openhab installation that has been working nicely. I have one rogue lightbulb that was from an old hub that runs Zigbee (A GE Link A19 lightbulb, firmware vintage 2015). To add it to the fold, I installed a Nortek Zigbee USB adaptor. That was a bit of a pain but eventually controller and lightbulb were added. The lightbulb appears as a Generic Zigbee device but offers one channel to control the light level via a dimmer.
The device appears in the logs, it goes online / offline if I unscrew the lightbulb etc. It looks like it’s working, except for not reporting a firmware status. (It’s unknown).
The only problem is that the controller doesn’t actually affect the lightbulb. I attached an item to the lightbulb thing and no adjustments actually have any impact on the lightbulb. I’m wondering if there is some incompatibility between the Nortek controller and the lightbulb. At this point I’ve spent quite a few hours trying to coax the lightbulb to do anything (it did work perfectly with the previous non openhab hub before it was reset). Any tips appreciated…
