This same symptom just started happening today. I may be an outlier, or I may be the early warning…
Hue2 bridge with SW 1943185030 using Vera “official” Hue2 plugin v 1.79
The Hue firmware updated itself a couple of days ago. This morning, we had a power outage long enough to take down the UPS with Vera on it. After the power came back, Vera is doing its usual stuff – minus any lighting actions.
The Hue bridge reports it is connected/paired, but all attempts to send commands through Vera to control lights fail with “Command failed” message. Attempting luup.call_action() commands results in error -911, not ready.
The lights are controllable with the Hue app – just not with Vera.
Things I’ve tried: POPO Hue 2 bridge; POPO Vera; uninstall/re-install Hue2 plugin. No change.
I surmise there has been another change in the Hue API which has blown up the Hue plugin. The fact that the Hue firmware updated a couple of days ago, and Vera/Hue interaction was suddenly disrupted right after a power outage, seems to point to an inability to send commands to the Hue due to failing authentication, notwithstanding the bridge being paired.
I notice the new Hue App reports the Hue is “Secure via HTTPS”. I don’t recall seeing that before. Could be related.
Anyone else noticing similar issues?
EDIT: I uninstalled the Hue2 plugin (again) and installed AltHue… Vera is controlling the lights again. So it appears the issue, whatever it is, is probably confined to the “official” Vera/Ezlo Hue2 plugin.
