I have started the journey into the rabbithole that is smart home automations/Home Assistant.
Doing so I have gotten a little frustrated when realizing that almost every guide to doing anything is a 5 minutes YouTube video. Therefore I decided to do a series of guides for pairing bulps and other perifirels with Conbee
You need a Ikea bulb and an way to turn the light on and off relative fast ;-)
- Put the bulb into a lamp (I usually use a small desklamp that is not used)
- Set the Conbee to search for lights
- Turn the bulb on and off five times. The bulb should register with Conbee within a minute or two
Easy, and you didn’t even have to watch a 5 minutes video ;-)
