unable to see custom device in NEEO app after confirming on Mac console.
So I received my NEEO yesterday and have been setting up the devices. I have the dreamscreen lights which is what pushed me towards NEEO after seeing a youtube video of someone controlling the dreamscreen with the NEEO remote.
So now after the setup I find that dreamscreen isn't directly available without some SDK work which I have followed the guide here: https://github.com/nklerk/neeo_driver-DreamScreen
it sounds simple enough, did what it said to do but nothing on the app.
So I have been searching the net for other things to try and have gone through the SDK test examples: https://github.com/NEEOInc/neeo-sdk-examples but still not able to find any of these custom installed devices from the app.
I followed through this thread https://planet.neeo.com/t/801awx/cant-find-neeo-accessory-on-neeo-app and tried what was said there, I managed to see that the brain and Mac are talking to each other and the app is showing that the SDK is registered but I cannot figure out why I still cannot located the devices.
The SDK has to run on an additional device, like a raspberry, your mac, a PC or a NAS. Could you let us know where you are running the SDK?
It sounds like you were able to get the SDK up and running, what does it say when you start it using the CLI (command line). Does it discover the NEEO Brain or are you seeing any errors?
Did you ad the DreamScreen driver to package.json so that it is listed as a driver which shall be executed?
I am hinestly no expert with the SDK. I am sure some other users will quickly jump in here to help.Reply
the SDK is running on my Mac mini which is my media server which I have running all the time. It’s hard wired via Ethernet with a static IP address to avoid any issues.
In command line I was able to ping the NEEO brain and when I registered the SDK it did an auto discovery and found the Brain.
When I ran the command “node index.js” there was no errors, just dropped to the next line as if it completed the command. However nothing new appeared on the app when I searched for DreamScreen. The same also applies for the simple accessory which I tried to test as I wasn’t having any luck with the dreamscreen package.
I didnt add anything to package.json as the driver package was already built and ready to go as it’s listed here on the forum and on github with very easy basic instructions. And to be be honest I don’t know how to add it to package.json. If you can guide me how to check that I will go through and see if there is a problem with it.Reply
