Connect app to Deconz running on Hassio(Home Assistant)

Hey, Im trying to connect the app to Deconz running on Hassio(Home Assistant) but i never successfully connect. Im using the same ip as hassio since the deconz stick is hooked up to the same machine/deconz gui installed. ive tried all the ports listed

Port 80 and 5900 also:

  • (API) Port : 40850
  • WebSocket Port : 8081

It gives me a strange error " exception in http request: error domain:NSURLE…"

If i press OK i still see the user/pass window where i try to type in the credentials but it doesnt seem to let me in etc. I dont find any documentation townards how im suppose to solve this if im running deconz on HA :frowning:

Hi, Hue Essentials should have shown deCONZ in the list automatically (so no connect manuallly needed) but it appears that does not work in your case. What do you see when you open https://phoscon.de/discover on your phone? It should show the details of your deCONZ setup.

Alternatively, you could use the option to connect manually as you tried already. Just to make sure, if you enter your ipaddress:port in a web browser, does that show the Phoscon app? Did you enter those same values in Hue Essentials?

Thanks for your reply!

https://phoscon.de/discover gives me:
[{“id”:“00212EFFFF0524D9”,“internalipaddress”:“172.30.33.2”,“macaddress”:“00212EFFFF0524D9”,“internalport”:40850,“name”:“Conbee”,“publicipaddress”:“REDACTED”}]

About that - upnp is not supported it seems. When i read about the hassio addon it says this under limitations/known issues:
“The add-on has no UPnP support.”

Any other ideas? :frowning:

What happens when you go to 172.30.33.2:40850 in your web browser? If you see the Phoscon app, then these should be the values you need to enter in Hue Essentials under connect manually. If you do not see the Phoscon app then it could be your deCONZ setup is not working correctly.

Missing UPnP support should not be a problem for Hue Essentials.

thanks for the reply thomas, looks dark tho.

172.30.33.2:40850 does not load in my browser, even tried placing the hassio machine in the DMZ to assure the ports were not the issue and rebooted the entire system

other stuff worth noting:
im using the IOS app of Hue Essentials on the same network as the machine ofcourse and it discovers my hue bridges w/o any issues
i can access the local deconz gui via “http://192.168.1.225:8123/hassio/ingress/core_deconz” (yes ive tried this ip/port combination aswell)
the local ip wont load in the browser either “192.168.1.225:40850”
navigating to http://phoscon.de/app sends me to http://phoscon.de/pwa/login.html?1581032189656 where i see my Conbee device “172.30.33.2” and lets me login.
https://github.com/home-assistant/hassio-addons/tree/master/deconz this is where ive fetched some of the info even if i dont understand some of the technical stuff on there

Hi again, just looked at the documentation and that also confirms the correct port is 40850 for the API. Strange that 172.30.33.2:40850 does not load in your browser, it should show the Phoscon app.

Could you make sure the deCONZ API is actually working? Go to 172.30.33.2:40850/api/config. That should return details from your deCONZ. If that does not work, then that explains why Hue Essentials cannot access deCONZ. If that is the case, we would need to find out where to access the API in your case.
