Tradfri Bulbs with Xiaomi Smart Home Gateway

since the Mijia Gateway supports the Tradfri Bulbs, I’d like to ask if someone has set them up in openHAB via the Mi Home or the Mi IO binding. Since it is not in the supported device list of the binding, I am interessted if I should invest in IKEA Bulbs.

Since I have to go to IKEA at the weekend anyways, I’ll buy a Tradfri bulb.
Let’s see if I can see something on the logs.

have you got something?

Sorry for the late reply.
I managed to connect the Tradfri bulb to the Hub. You need to place it very close to the hub itself.
It shows up as “Unsupported Xiaomi Device” and it works with the Mi Home App. So the binding would need support for tradfri, I’ll open an “issue” or is there a better way?

Have you found a way to control Tradfri bulbs with Xiaomi Gateway through openhab? I’ve tried it, but the Tradfri bulbs don’t get discovered, although I can see them in Mi Home App.

I’m trying to add support for the bulbs, but Im not getting any messages when enabling trace logging and turning the lights on and off inside the mi home app. I don’t think Xiaomi itself is publishing messages in the bridge over the wireless protocol…
