I’m using 2 Macs for this:
One running OH3 (MacOS 11.5.2), the ZigBee binding (3.0.1 and set to the default Ember settings per the binding readme) and a HUSBZB-1, and
Another (MacOS 11.5.2), a HUSBZB-1 and Wireshark sniffing with the ZigBee sniffer,
The results are:
The firmware of both dongles have been updated - 188.8.131.52 > 184.108.40.206
I have switched the dongles and obtain the same results.
Per the ZigBee binding readme page, Innr bulbs (some??) should work.
It appears that the dongle on the sniffer Mac is receiving network traffic as indicated by the receipt of the Innr bulb’s broadcast.
Since both Macs are using the same OS, it doesn’t appear to be an OS or Mac issue, and because I have the same results switching dongles, it doesn’t appear to be a dongle issue.
But, the dongle on the OH3 Mac is not communicating with the network.
The sniffer java app resets the dongle to a mode to allow it to be used as a sniffer. Per the docs:
“Note that when used as a sniffer, the dongle is not running in its standard mode and is not used as a node on a ZigBee network. It will normally either run different firmware, or be configured into a specific mode to provide the low level data required.”
Maybe this is a dongle issue which is not being set up correctly with the binding?
In the binding settings, the PAN ID, Extended PAN ID, the Network Security Key and Link Security Key are all auto-completed. The Install Code is blank. Other than that, the binding appears to be ONLINE.
Is there somewhere else I need to look?
I’d like to use ZigBee just for the color bulbs and would like to get this figured out before dropping another $50 on a Hue bulb if compatibility is an issue.
