I have the VD and scene setup. Twinkly lights on firmware version 2.5.9. Everything seems to be set correctly including ip adress. VD debug says "VD idle".

I can control the twinkly from app on phone, but my HC2 will not control at all. 

My TCP is set to 0 ? I am thinking that maybe I need a tcp port to interact?

So ... dont know what went wrong, but I installed the VD once more (i have 2 lights), and the second VD works. Deleted the first VD and reinstalled, and now both VD's work perfectly.


Cheers
