Hi! I'm using some AJAX GU10 pro bulbs for some motion triggered automation, which is working well.
These bulbs also support an RF 2.4ghz remote which is great for on-the-fly adjustment of colour and brightness.
The issue is that since these commands are not Zigbee, Hubitat is unaware of any change to the device status and as such will report the previous settings. Here's an example:
- GU10 Pro: Blue, 100% level (accurately reflected in Hubitat device status)
- Changed via RF remote to Red, 50% level (Hubitat still showing Blue, 100% level)
I thought that as a workaround, I could poll the device somehow or issue a refresh command which would somehow force the device to report it's current status to Hubitat which would then display the actual values (Red, 50% level using my example above).
I can't find any way to do this. Does anyone have any ideas? Surely the bulb is aware that it has changed? Maybe it's not that smart. I had assumed that I just hadn't figured out how to get the newly updated device status from the bulb, but maybe it's still sending out the original Blue, 100% level because the bulb itself is unaware of the change?
If I really wanted to go down the rabbit hole (which I'm not sure I want/need to), I could investigate sniffing the RF signal somehow and triggering a routine to issue a Zigbee command to Hubitat to effectively synchronise Hubitat to what the bulb is literally set to.
It's not massive. I can work around this and deal with the limitations. But until I rule everything out, it's bother me!
The above setup is perfect for rooms that aren't motion controlled as you can just use a switch to turn on or off the bulbs or set the colours and then use the RF till your hearts content.
Any help would be appreciated.
