[APP] Govee

Unofficial app for the Govee WIFI enabled devices. This app supports the main light functions as they are available in the Govee API.

A special thanks to github user chris01b for creating the first steps into consuming the API in a nice way for nodejs that I could easily consume and adapt for the Homey app.

Getting started
You need to use the Govee app to request the API key for you account.
Then after installing this app you can set the API key in the app settings.
Then you can add the Govee devices.

Supported devices
Currently the app supports the:
H6051 - Aura Lite Table Lamp
H6052 - Aura Table Lamp
H6053 - Flow Light Bar
H6054 - Flow Pro Light Bar
H6056 - Flow Plus Light Bar
H6062 - Glide wall Light
H6101 - RGBIC for TV
H6104 - RGBIC for TV with Alexa
H6143 - 5m RGBIC Strip Light
H6144 - 2 * 5m RGBIC Strip Light
H6163 - 5m RGBIC with Alexa
H6199 - Immersion TV Strip Light

I will be adding more devices, for special requests please drop me a note.

Limitations
The Govee API does only allow basic light operations, these are:
turn on/off
set color
set color temp
set brightness

If you set your bar to a color mode, both bars will use that color in full. There is no way to switch back to video mode without the Govee app.

Govee API v1.3 is used.

The first test release in submission at this time. When its ready ill post the Test app link here.

And its available now:

Request for device support
Since I can not test the other devices (not an owner of those) you can request other devices that you own so you can confirm me if the setup and the detection of the device capabilities works as expected.

For each device I can add nice icons for the deice type. If you want those instead of the Govee icon please send me a good product shot from Govee or better provide me with a nice SVG image to save me time.

Once the test phase is over I will add all Govee devices that are supported by the API but with Govee icon and without any capability test.

Hey @Kaoh,

I got a device request, i got the Govee TV backligts H6104, can you add it?

thx!!

Device request, the very excellent H5179 WiFi Room Thermometer Hygrometer. These are a battery powered device and could be used as part of a security device for trailers and caravans etc. Cheap and versatile

Can you add the HB6056 lightbar please?

I just put a new version in test (pending release)
Govee | Homey

This version now adds support for:
H6051
H6052
H6053
H6056
H6101
H6104
H6144

I can not be sure if all devices work properly through the API. I added some since I think they are close to another one. If they dont work for you please let me know

Love it if it is possible to add H6163 and H6143. Keep up the great work.

That’s a shame, thanks for looking though. Pity because it really is a very useful device

Hey @Kaoh ,

I installed the app, received api key, saved it in the app. When i tried tot install my lights. It says object response, after that it doesn’t react. Did i something wrong?

So it does not do the discovery and list your devices? Please try again and when it fails send me a diagnostics report using the app page. Then try to restart the app and see if that resolves the issue

Also make sure to trim your key, sometimes a copy paste adds a space on the rear for example. If that is the cause I’ll add some trim code in the next release

Hey Vincent,

Heb je het rapport doorgestuurd. Hij laat inderdaad geen lijst van apparaten zien. Ik heb eerst de app verwijdered daarna terug geinstalleerd, en nieuwe Api key aangevraagd. Hierbij extra aandacht gegeven aan de spaties voor-en achteraan.

Hierbij de code van het rapport: 85d1d24f-7bb3-48ff-8899-3a0fef689594

Nu heb ik ineens de herstart van de app gedaan, en doet hij het wel.

Bedankt voor je moeite!

Groeten
Stefan

New test version 1.3 includes these also:
H6062
H6163
H6143

Thanks for the report. I see I only loaded the API key from the settings during initialization. Added additional refresh during pairing. So should be fixed now

Hee Vincent. Great. Thank you. I can confirm that H6143 and H6163 is working. :+1:

Hi!

I have a H6110, 2*5m RDB light strip. You can find data from get/devices from it:

"data": {
        "devices": [
            {
                "device": "XXX",
                "model": "H6110",
                "deviceName": "H6110_XXX",
                "controllable": true,
                "retrievable": true,
                "supportCmds": [
                    "turn",
                    "brightness",
                    "color",
                    "colorTem"
                ],
                "properties": {
                    "colorTem": {
                        "range": {
                            "min": 2000,
                            "max": 9000
                        }
                    }
                }
            }
        ]
    },

If you can add it, it would be great !

Thanks for your work !
