Setting up RGBGenie remote ZB-5028

Got it working. Realised it's necessary to select one of the buttons 1,2,3,4 to make it work. It's working nicely with the Mirror app. Cool!

@Gnant hi, maybe you can assist me. So I've set up one of my new RGBgenie remotes using Mirror app. I have 3 groups of lights linked to the child apps 1, 2 and 3. The first set works nicely, with color/hue changes, brightess, on/off, the big W button working etc. Everything seems fine, I see the device parameters changing on the device page and the Mirror app is sending these commands through to the 4 lamps nicely. The large on/off button also controls all 3 groups of lights on/off perfectly. But for the other 2 sets of lights, when I click on buttons 2 or 3 to change to control that set of lights, I can control them on and off with a long press on buttons 2 or 3, and can control the brightness with the * buttons, but I'm unable to change the hue/colour with the color picker on the remote. And the device page shows no result when I try to select a color from the remote color picker dial. It seems only to work on the 1st child app. Any ideas how to get the colours working on those other groups?

@Angus_M

Can you tell me what the devices are on 2 and 3 and if they connected directly to Hubitat?

Hi, yeah they are just more zigbee bulbs and connected directly to the hub as per the ones for set 1. It just seems that the hue/colour is not getting sent to the child apps beyond #1. Strange.

The only possible complication I see in terms of how I've set it up is that I have 4 lamps in set 1, then 4 in set 2 (but these 4 include 2 from set 1.... eg. 2 of the lamps are shared across set 1 and 2). Then set 3 is a single additional lamp. But everything seems to work fine apart from the colours not changing for sets 2 and 3. Hope it makes sense.

Anyway, none of that should matter because it's after the Mirror app. I'm not seeing any hue/colour activity on the device page of the child apps 2 & 3, so it seems the remote maybe isn't sending that data for groups beyond #1.

Going to bed now. Will continue to test tomorrow and see if I can work it out.

It does make sense. We have experienced issues with color commands when third party devices are connected to the Hue Bridge, but not when connected directly to Hubitat. And mixing devices with different zones should make no difference. Can you email me the logs at sean@RGBgenie.com?

@Gnant Any progress on getting the 5001 to work with HE? thanks

@razorwing. Sorry for the late reply but not as of yet. We are working on it though.

Hi does the ZB-5008 work with HE yet? I'm wanting to get a remote to control the color lights and can't seem to find any of the ones on the compatible device list. (if someone has a link to one of the ones from the compatible device list that would be great)
