  • JowiHue Philips Hue control beta now available

    I have created a new plugin for controlling Philips Hue lights.
    This is the release 1.0.4.1. It is available in the Manage plugins list of HS3

    For further questions or updates go to this forum

    Please note that installation has changed to HS3 standard methodlater development: (if I can do it..)
    - Seperated music module (microphone based), to use on computer in different room then HS3 server to have disco effects
    - Ability to point the program to a slideshow photo and adjust colors of lamps accordingly in a configurable way
    - whatever more comes in mind - or from you!

    If you experience any problems, please let me know on the Homeseer board or drop me an email at wim at vuyk.info.

    Documentation is in the zip file.

    You can download the plugin through the HS3 Manage plugins interface (available soon)

    *update* bug with group "All Lights" is solved, should be working correct now, please download the updated version for this issue

    Changes since 0.9.2.0:

    * Solved the message "Unknown setting:Refreshrate"
    * Added support for LLC010
    * Solved possible issue with runrise and sunset animation when animation would start within the hour from the end time
    * Solved "Collection was modified; enumeration operation may not execute." This should not occur anymore now.

    Changes in 1.0.4.1
    * solved issue with Scene renaming
    * solved issue when bridge is not found

    Bridge on another network

    Can your plugin also be made to work when the bridge is not on the same network?

      I am not sure if the plugin will become able to do that to be honest. The official API does not provide methods for access to the bridge outide the LAN. That said, the meethue and IFFT sites offer just that, so there should be a way to do it. But I did not find it yet, so cannot promise you that.

      On the other hand, if you use the plugin as remote plugin, inside the house you want to control and have hoimeseer on another LAN, that seems as a option to work.

      For now the plugin has to be in the same network as the lamps.

        Thought that maybe a configurable ip address could do the trick, but the remote plugin option sounds promising too

        Guess I need to consider if this is worth moving the bridge to the same network as homeseer.

              I like the way you setup the plugin. With the scenes and animation tabs. looks good. I'll keep following

                Phaeton,

                Thanks for noticing
                Mainly trying to follow HS3 way of controlling events etc.

                I am now slowly working through logic of the animation page. Will be complex to program, but should be easy to use for users

                Welcome aboard - and ideas are welcome always!

                    Bart,

                    Thanks for the compliment!

                    I did discover the same. Setting a light or scene works fine, but updating the light devices has a issue. I have repaired it in my current version, but that is now in the middle of enabling animations. It would not yet be stable enough for publishing it.
                    I am hoping to have this stable in two weeks if time lets me.

                    So I hope you can wait for a bit before this issue is fixed for you?

                    Regards,

                    Wim

                      Wim,

                      No problem.. For now i am still using jon00 hue interface.

                      Maybe some feature request

                      Saving current hue states to a global and severting back via that global. For example for alerting or messaging ( blue flash for rain)

                      Wakeup scene. But i think this should be possible in your new version.

                      Also some graphics are not transparent in hstouch.

                      Keep up the good work.

                      Bart
                      Regards Bart

                        Is it possible that the ini file is missing from the zip file?

                          Vanisher,

                          No, instead the old documentation was in the zipfile. The INIfile has been removed from this beta. All information from the INI file has been moved to the database. Sorry for the confusion!

                          I have uploaded the correct documentation in my answer to you.
