I just wanted a thread I could go back on and for others to have also.
Firstly, can we edit / update the wiki ? I feel like there are some edits that need to be made RE the ikea bulbs being supported, but not the ikea hub (so the ikea bulbs do require hardware / hue bridge) but thats no listed in the wiki. Am i right in assuming that devices that need drivers (do this / on-off) require hubs but devices that just report dont? re temp sensors / contact sensors. Also - if the hub has these radios, shouldnt that be able to drive these devices? (but we are leaving it to the hubs as to not overload the HE system?)
current supported devices wiki
Second, with the hub - do I need to add anything in the TF slot / can the HE do anything cool with the IR port ? My paperwork states that I plug in one usb, but I have 2 (assuming because of my aus location)
Thirdly, when you first signup into the hub it asks for your zip code - but I have a 4 digit postcode and it wouldnt accept it. I walked away to help my kid do something and came back to the hub being logged in and sitting at the settings page. Again, it wont let me add in my Post Code and I googled the issue with no answer in the forums.
Basically you can leave it blank - as long as you move the house location on the google map and the daylight / sunset time changes and you hit update.
I feel like the HE is going to be exactly what im after, and the community fill in all of the gaps, but for those researching / jumping in the barebones/wiki should be updated so to save some confusion for the beginners.
I am going to be taking this extremely slowly and watching the YT vids and adding devices once I know all the info. Just getting the hub online and both my and my mrs phone online with the app and reporting presence will probably be my first step before adding more bits in.
