Well that’s a bummer it’s not supported anymore.
The IP is pingable and unless they changed the port, it appears correct. I don’t get a MAC address filled in, and none of the buttons in the device work. Plus I keep getting the “Startup lua failed” message on the device. I Telnetted to 5577 and it connected, but since I don’t know the command structure, I couldn’t check to be sure it’s working. It does work in the phone app though.
I’m returning the 7W bulbs for the 9W ones. They were too dim. Perhaps the 9W ones follow the old spec and might work with the plugin. We’ll see. These lamps are pretty important in my setup and I really need them to work with the Vera.
There just are no real good RGB alternatives to Hue that work with the Vera that I could find. I tried a bunch of the Zigbee based ones and none of them pair properly. None of the ones they list as supported are available anymore. Really didn’t want to spend $200 on the Hue and have yet ANOTHER bridge to deal with.
