Adding this thread for those of you who might also be migrating over from Wink Hub to Hubitat, who are also using an ORBI Mesh Network.
Here's my Network config:
ISP - Spectrum / Charter / Hitron Modem+Router:
Wireless Mesh: Orbi RBK40 - AC2200 Base + 2 Sats
(1) Wink Hub 2 / v4.3.60
(6) GE Link Bulbs
(4) Cree Bulbs
(2) Quirky + GE Outlets
With Wink now charging $4.99 p/month for cloud service, I'm looking got migrate out of Wink ecosystem. Currently testing out 2 alternatives: (1) Hubitat Hub ecosystem and then possibly (2) HomeBridge on Raspberry Pi. Hopefully the Hubitat will be all I need.
Received the HE yesterday and connected it to an open cat5 port on my Orbi Router. Here's current issue I'm running into:
HE hub showing solid blue light after plugging in.
after navigating to portal.hubitat.com >> Find Hubs > autodiscovery mode, it took forever and would locate the HE hub on the network.
Opened up Orbi admin to locate Hubitat hub and founf the IP address
Went back over to portal.hubitat.com and typed in the hub IP address
It did then locate the hub and the icon showed up below.
clicked into the icon and then received
This site can’t be reached
192.168.1.xxx refused to connect.
So I'm currently stuck at this point in the process of tring to setup the he hub.
will report back any solutions that help.
I read about connecting a switch directly to the modem/router, so that arrives tomorrow. I bought a Netgear gigabit and also a TP-Link 10/100. Will try both. Looks like 100 max on port speed, so probably will start with the TP-Link.
Any suggestions to proceed with Setup of HE Hub?
