I’ve recently bought an OSRAM switch mini (Amazon Link ) as an additional switch besides the general hue switch. After some hassle I manage to get it paired to my bridge using the “touchlink” and “search for light” options when adding a device in the app. However, the switch shows up as an IKEA light.
The switch itself seems to work as a switch at least. The functions mentioned on the OSRAM website (see 5.3) all work, but it showing up as a light is a bit odd. Investigating the workings of the light a bit deeper, it seems like they directly relate to the state of my other lights. I tried using my home assistant to listen for “hue_events” fired by the remote, but they don’t show up as such (whereas those from my Hue Dimmer do show). I don’t know as in how far this is related to the plug being identified as a light.
Anyway, my first guess would be changing the type of the controller so that it isn’t a light, but I’m not sure how to do that -nor if it’s even possible. I’m also not sure if it’s really a bug that the controller even shows up as a light, or if that’s just how Hue sees it.
