GE zigbee light bulbs

3rd party zigbee device integration into C4 isn't as easy as what you think it is.

 

3rd party devices need to have an additional cluster (named 'Large Network Support' by C4) added to their Zigbee stack on top of the Zigbee Pro HA that they already have to cater for Control4 specific functionality like identify packets and announce packets (kind of like a ping).

 

Without large network support you should be able to join the mesh but you will need to enter in the node ID manually into the identify window.  Also online/offline information about the device will be incorrect and reliable sending/receiving of zigbee packets from/to director will be unreliable.

 

Hope that clears things up about this device and other generic zigbee devices.

Thanks for your insight Alan

They work with the hue hub, wink hub, SmartThings hub. Pick one and integrate into control4 if you want to write a driver to work with any of those hubs.

The problem is the link hub is slow because it's only doing zigbee. All singling comes from the cloud
