Philips Hue group config
#1
I have seven BR30 cans that light up the kitchen. The auto config worked well except it creates seven individual bulbs. It would be very nice to have them addressable as a group to control on, off, color, and dim level.

Does anyone know of a way to accomplish this? I think this might be a common situation.

If the Hue provides definitions of scenes and scene commands, then that could be supported. I think that was already mentioned and it does provide that info, but I haven't looked at it yet. In the context of some stuff we'll be doing post-4.7, getting the Hue up to the next level will be something that needs to be done, so we'll get to here before long.

now that im using the Echo for a lot of control, this might need to get put on a list. it's very cumbersome to code in all of the lights for a scene one at a time.

i'd like to be able to set a user action from the Echo to just recall a lighting scene.

here is an example of what a group looks like from the API:

Code:
"3":{"name":"d.kitchen","lights":["10","11","13","14","7","15"],"type":"LightGroup","action": {"on":false,"bri":1,"hue":14737,"sat":144,"effect":"none","xy":[0.4606,0.4097],"ct":369,"alert":"none","colormode":"hs"}},

and here is an example of what a scene looks like:

Code:
"B3D1BF8F-5003-48":{"name":"Dining On","lights":["4","12","16","17","26","27"],"active":true}}

A lot of work ended up being done to the Hue in the 4.7 cycle, but the scene stuff didn't get done. It's still on the list and we'll get to it as soon as it's practical, which is likely to be late 5.0 beta cycle, or early 5.1 beta cycle.

thats what i figured. just wanted to put it back on a list somewhere.

i've never learned how to handle macros, so now might be a good time to see if i can recreate scenes with them.

Please let me know if you make any progress. I have to control them sequentially but frequently one of them doesn't respond with this method. I'm trying to avoid adding a delay as that would look goofy too.

thats what im running into. you have to put a wait in there or else you wont get 100% of the lights to respond.

ive been using cqc 10 years and never had to deal with a macro. guess theres no time like the present. Smile
