Error retrieving Hue device status: resource, /lights/18...

   Hue Lights Error                Error retrieving Hue device status: resource, /lights/18, not available


this format of error is not something I've seen before. The plugin (1.10.21) seems to be working properly. Reloading the plugin doesn't fix it. If this is a problem with a specific device, and there's a way to give its Indigo or Hue name instead of "18" that would be much preferred for troubleshooting.

I added the device name to the error message.

You can list all the lights in menu/print hue info/lights. there you can find the light# and the indigo device number
like this:
Code: Select all

...


The error comes from:
it tries to retrieve info for light # 18 but the bridge does not return info

you can switch on debug (4) read and (5)send in config

hope that helps
