Zigby power switches missing on/off in mobile app

I bought a pair of Zigby power switches that work great from the web interface. They have on/off buttons for control. However, from the Android app, they only show their status. There doesn’t seem to be any way to control the devices. Any help? Maybe this is a bug with the app? Please see the attachments. The “Back yard” and “kitchen” rooms have the devices.

Look at their settings. It’s probably not recognized as a switch.

Go to advanced via the web interface and be sure to have this configuration:

  • device_type: urn:schemas-upnp-org:device:BinaryLight:1
  • device_file: D_BinaryLight1.xml
  • category_num: 3
  • subcategory_num: 3

then do a luup reload, refresh the browser and if you see the on/off toggle, instead of separate on/off buttons, you should be good to go on the mobile app as well.

Thank you. These were the settings:

  • urn:schemas-micasaverde-com:device:GenericIO:1
  • D_GenericIO1.xml
  • category_num: 11
  • subcategory_num: 0

After changing them to your suggestions, I see no difference on the web or the mobile app.

You steered me in the right direction, and I have it working now. I made one more change by copying this setting from another switch that works fine:

device_json: D_GenericIO1.json

Thank you for your help!
