There are now numerous posts/threads about the lighting portion of the Bond integration being broken, but so far, no acknowledgment from @bcopeland about it.
Perhaps he is on holiday, but I really hope he can circle back and fix this issue relatively soon.
Otherwise, this new official integration doesn't work for many of us, and it's just a matter of time before something (API changes etc) inevitably breaks the very-smoothly working community integration.
I don't doubt it's a bear to work with, so your efforts are much appreciated!
And your last post there segued right into my next thoughts -- the Bond beta sounds like it has some extensive changes in the hopper (to include API changes IIRC), so waiting on a wider "fix" makes good sense with that in mind.
Thanks again for the news update here -- it's much appreciated! I'm not in the Bond beta program yet, but I'll hippity-hop over into that now.
ETA -- I'll get in the HE beta too -- I see now that's what you are talking about
FWIW, I believe @bcopeland was specifically recommending you join the HE beta program, which beta tests new hub FW releases (2.3.3.xxx will be the next beta release). He was not referring to the Bond beta program which run by Bond and covers the Bond app and Bond Bridge FW.
