I will not loose more time to check the old plugin and start with AltHue. If you are able to maintain the devices and want to preserve scenes (to some degree, since AltHue is using standard actions, while the official one goes for proprietary ones…) you can
- restore a backup
- remove the embedded flag from the child devices (this should prevent a delete) before they get deleted
- install AltHue
- run a discovery
- swap device ID, as previously shown
This will preserve scenes. If you are able to start from scratch, just do it and never look back. AltHue is very well maintained and it’s working with standard actions, so 100% compatible with mobile apps.
EDIT: and I wish it was possible for the community to flag a plug-in as not working and have the AppStore reflect this, to prevent new users not accessing the forum from installing non-working things and get frustrated. There’s a long list of scenarios like this…
