Every Lampe & Plug works with Phoscon.
(Hue lamps, Osram Plug, Gledopto driver & Osram Ledvance)
But in Openhab the Ledvance where not discovered...
All others lamps & plugs will be discovered by Hue Binding.
Is there a other protocol or something else that Openhab cant find the Ledvance Downlights?
I have 10 pieces of them and all of them doesnt come in Openhab.

Thanks, Marcel

I posted this problem also in OpenHab board and here is a quote from "cweitkamp"

The “type”: “Color temperature light” is important for discovery of devices by the Hue binding. As you can see the LEDVANCE bulbs return “type”: “Color dimmable light” which will not recognized as valid by the Hue binding. I am not sure if that type is correct. Maybe you should post your findings into your related deCONZ issue and ask for verification over there.

Therefore the output from /lights/:

Osram Ledvance:

"etag": "9883a8119c818ac46c095a292868329d",
"hascolor": true,
"manufacturername": "LEDVANCE",
"modelid": "Down Light TW",
"name": "Wohnzimmer Couch",
"state":{"alert": "none", "bri": 254, "colormode": "ct", "ct": 370,…},
"swversion": "00102002",
"type": "Color dimmable light",
"uniqueid": "d5:3a:00:b8:d1:f0:00:00-01"

And this is a Philips lamp which is find trough OpenHab:

“ctmax”: 454,
“ctmin”: 153,
“etag”: “5bf6eff2f879f06e73692eec543a07b9”,
“hascolor”: true,
“manufacturername”: “Philips”,
“modelid”: “LTC015”,
“name”: “Esszimmer Licht”,
“state”:{“alert”: “none”, “bri”: 254, “colormode”: “ct”, “ct”: 366,…},
“swversion”: “1.46.13_r26312”,
“type”: “Color temperature light”,
“uniqueid”: “00:17:88:01:03:37:1b:c2-0b”

Is the Color dimmable light correct?
The Osram lamp is the same like Philips also dimmable & color temperature light.

Thanks alot, Marcel

The type is directly derived from the light descriptor. But the type Color temperature light would be more appropriate for the TW version. We can correct this statically.
