I’m trying to connect a Hue dimmer switch to diyHue for use with the official Philips Hue app, but I can only get it to work partially.
I have a Raspberry Pi 3B+ running Raspbian and have installed diyHue with the “Automatic host install” method and the service is running. I use a Conbee II USB-stick, so I have installed deCONZ as well and connected it succesfully to diyHue.
I can successfully connect to the diyHue bridge with the official Philips Hue app and the Hue Essentials app and I can see my Yeelights that were automatically added in both apps. So far so good.
Now I want to connect my official Hue dimmer switch, but both the Philips Hue and Hue Essentials apps can not find it when scanning (orange light is blinking after 2s reset). So I have tried to add it in deCONZ (after holding the reset for 10s as instructed) and I could successfully add it and it is recognized as a Philips Dimmer switch.
In the Hue Essentials app the Hue dimmer switch is now available and I can add actions to the buttons, but in the official Philips Hue app the dimmer switch doesn’t show up.
What did I do wrong or what is the proper way to add a Hue dimmer switch to diyHue, so I can use it with the official Philips Hue app? For now I would like to keep using the official Philips Hue app, but if I can’t add Hue dimmer switches in the app or through deCONZ it is useless. I hope someone can help!
