There's no driver. It's done via the web server. Check the setup document for the details. It's one of the technical documents on the web site.

Weunch has produced a driver that simulates the Philips Hue lighting system

http://www.charmedquark.com/vb_forum/sho...hp?t=12124

I am using it to control my CQC system. It has pro's and con's over going through all the web based stuff, but you should check it out.

I am just starting with echo and trying to decide which way to go. What are some of the pros and cons?

Thanks

The big one is that you can't query for information, and you are limited to the types of operations that are defined for a light, whereas with our own skill you can have lots of different commands and such.

You should watch Vivek's video he just posted, which demonstrates lots of stuff that you could never do with the lighting system simulation scheme. Oh, I see you just responded over there.

See the caveats section on the driver page for more limitations.
