The Community Collection of Hue Bridge Integration Apps and Drivers
Installation instructions and code to install can be found in the GitHub repo:
NOTE for 1.x users upgrading to 2.x or newer: If you are an existing 1.x user upgrading to 2.x or newer, pay special attention to the notes in the readme. The parent app is deprecated, but existing users can continue using this parent/child setup with minor changes. (New users will have only one app.)
As of version 2.0, I have also added support for installation/upgrading via Hubitat Package Manager (existing 1.x users will still need to read the note above; new users can install without concern).
I've tried to make this integration as Hubitat-like as possible, working nearly identically to the native integration except when extra features are used and using standard capabilities whenever possible for new features. This is part of the reason I started over with writing an integration from scratch instead of modifying an existing integration like Hue B Smart or porting a different app/driver like Hue Advanced. To my knowledge, this integration currently implements everything Hubitat does, plus these often-requested features:
- Scene support! (Creates button/switch device for any scene you add)
- Access to Hue bulb "effects" (color loop, select/alert, etc.)
- Improved group support ("Change Level" capability--
stopLevelChangecommands implemented; rate is adjustable)
- It's open source! Customize the code to suit your requirements if you so desire.
More documentation can be found in the Readme on Github. My plan is to keep stable releases in the Hubitat Community repo at GitHub - HubitatCommunity/CoCoHue: Open-source community-created Hue Bridge integration for Hubitat (most people should use this version) and keep more experimental code in my own, GitHub - RMoRobert/CoCoHue: CoCoHue: Open-source Hue Bridge Integration for Hubitat (this version not recommended for most people). Feel free to use whichever you like, but if you have any problems or questions, let me know which one you're using.
Feel free to post any feedback here!
