Philips Hue app?

Post by steinis » 01 Nov 2016 15:23

I like the Z-way running on my raspberry pi. But im missing a way to control my Hue lights.
Is there a easy way to control my Hue lights from Z-way software?

Thats great. Have you added feedback or is it just a on/off switch at the moment?

hello,
i have add a refresh after send a command (on or off).
They are also an automatic refresh every minute to test if every hue is reachable.

Currently i try to implement color changing but i feel some difficulties.

I don't know how to use switchRGB of Z-Way Home Automation Engine. It doesn't work
http://docs.zwayhomeautomation.apiary.i ... ual-device

switchRGBW is working but i need an example.

Hey, Minux;

Sounds pretty awesome. Are you able to publish or share your plugin for hue?

Hi Together,
I actually simply created a short Bash-shell-Script for that and call it from a code-device.
Pretty simple and stable to use actually.
With a couple of parameters you can easily select which hue-bulb, saturation, color and on/off or even alarm-mode. You can use the dimming-device right away from out of the UI to control the luminance. Only for colour-changes you have to set that value currently within the code-device... If someone's interested, I'll post it somewhere....
However, nothing difficult anyhow. Works absolutely stable for my currently around 15 hue devices...

someone know where i can find a visual description of different device ?
switchBinary, switchMultilevel, toggleButton, switchControl, switchRGBW ....
I don't know if it is possible to create my own Virtual Device Types ?
