Zigbee2mqtt and device updates (opinions, concerns, etc..)

Hello all!

I see many of you are using zigbee 2 mqtt. I love this and one day I am sure will use it. My question though is less about use and more how do you receive individual device update? Let’s say Phillips had new software for a light.

I am assuming that you figure if it works today why does it need an update? I fully accept this assumption, because well there is much truth. But I am curious what everyone’s thoughts are on this topic.

You can’t.

You would need to unpair and connect to the e.g. hue bridge again to receive the Phillips update.

If a device is not working correctly i would try that, but not just because there is an “update”.
