Re: Adding smart lights

I think you need to carefully read the instructions for the lights. If they are only Bluetooth, which I very much doubt, they must have gateway box that will connect to the VM hub using Ethernet. Bluetooth on a lot of IoT devices is just used to set up the app that they use on a phone. They are usually 2.4Ghz WiFi and a lot of them will not work with the VM hub as it is shipped. This is because the SSID, the name used to connect to WiFi, for both the 2.4Ghz an 5Ghz WiFi bands has the same name. You have to go into the settings of the VM hub and “split” the bands to have different names, link xxx-2 and xxx-5.
