I am using the Tratfri remote control E1524 with some Tradfri light bulbs with openhab and the zigbee binding.
With the original Tradfri gateway it works like following:
- Pairing the remote with the gateway
- Pairing the remote control with bulbs; the gateway automaticly recognizes the bulbs (in groups).
With openhab/zigbee binding this way doesn’t work.
After succesfully pairing the Tradfri remote control with openhab/zigbee binding, it is unpossible to pair the Tradfri remote control with any bulb.
If you try to pair the light bulbs first and then try to pair the remote control with the bulbs, this works, but the zigbee binding does not recognize the remote control.
I know that the Tradfri remote controls do not send their commands to a gateway, but directly to the lightbulbs via multicasts (group id). But if a remote control is pairing with a light bulb that is already paired with the zigbee binding, the zigbee binding should be able to recognize the new remote control, right? But it doesn’t.
The Tradfri remote controls independently send her commands directly to the light bulbs, this is actually not a problem so far. But the Tradfri remote controls also send their battery status and this is of course also interesting for openhab, in order to notify corresponding battery low warnings via rules.
Is ther any solution, that the openhab/zigbee binding ist recognizing the Tradfri remote controls?
