Phillips Hue lights
« on: December 20, 2013, 01:29:25 AM »
anyone familiar with these? https://www.meethue.com/en-US

I was wondering if I could control these with one of our controllers. Falcon, Lynx, LOR.

There are programs for the pi that can control them via an interface on the hub of the hue system.

Perhaps when some extra scripting is done on the pi player, so you could get some color fades etc going.

That what I was hoping to do. Maybe not part of a show, but dim and change colors while the show is running.

poke around on universal-devices forum for their ISY994 units. There was a fellow over there that had some utilities running on PI or pointed in the right direction at least.

Warning that is another slippery slope!

Thanks for the heads up and warning. I don't need to be falling off any more slippery slopes! I have been putting off purchasing any replacements lights for the house hoping I could come up with a solution that will work into what I already have and still not be rendered useless for the next owner when I move on.
