Notes

Pairing

Factory reset the Hue dimmer switch by pressing and holding the setup button on the back for 10 seconds.

Restart the Hue dimmer switch by holding all 4 buttons of the Hue dimmer switch. You can let go when the light on the front flashes red/green briefly.

Using the dimmer to reset a Hue light bulb

To use the Hue dimmer switch to factory reset a Hue light bulb see HOWTO: Factory reset a Hue bulbopen in new window. After resetting the bulb will automatically connect. This method also works for Philips Hue Lightstrips. Hue dimmer switch can also be used to factory reset Ikea Trådfri light bulbs using the same method described above.

Binding

If you want to bind the dimmer to a (Hue) lamp you'll have to bind it to the lamp through MQTT and unbind it from the coordinator. Use the dimmer as source and a literal coordinator as target for that.

Troubleshooting

Resetting the device

  • Method 1: Press all four buttons for 4 seconds. When the light turns green, release the buttons. The device will flash green and red alternatively after which it will reconnect to the network.
  • Method 2: Use a needle or paperclip to press the reset button on the back for 10 seconds. The behavior is similar to method 1

Device refuses actions

If actions (e.g. applying zigbee2mqtt/bridge/request/device/remove to a dimmer) result in timeouts, perform a reset (see above) and apply the action right after the device announced itself in the network.

Device announces itself but the buttons don't work

The dimmer appears to be working normally and the logs in Zigbee2MQTT look good. However, nothing happens when a button is pressed (no light, no log message in Zigbee2MQTT). In this case:

  • Reset the device
  • Use zigbee2mqtt/bridge/request/device/remove to remove the device from the network (this should result in a "left the network" log message)
  • Allow joining of new devices in Zigbee2MQTT
  • Reset the device again
  • Wait for it to pair again. The device should now be operational.

OTA updates

This device supports OTA updates, for more information see OTA updates.
