I had some problems with the range of my Milight hub. So I searched for a solution. I found this one https://github.com/sidoh/esp8266_milight_hub. It works really good. Range before was 7 meters, now I can reach my whole house and the hub is on the ground floor. The other benefit is that you can add as many lights as you want (or need, not limitless but a lot). Now you don’t have to hide all those hub anymore.
Sadly the homey Milight app can’t discover them. Seems to me that should be possible (gona ask on slack). It can communicate through MQTT. But how do I add a MQTT light to homey? Do I have to make virtual devices with a flow communicating to the VD…?
Anyone with some advice about this?
