Hi. The app is depending on the fact that the bridge is already connected
via either the standard Super Lan Connect which I have myself. Or via an
app that is exposing the capability bridge and has the api connection as an
attribute. The last method I have not tested, it should work for app like
Hue B Smart.
To clarify, this code doesn’t work without the Hue Bridge, is that correct? Am I right in believing that getting the Hue Dimmer Switch to work directly in SmartThings (Without a Hue Hub) isn’t a possibility? Are there any other options for zigbee, or Z-way remotes that do work?
There are a number of devices similar to the Hue dimmer switch which can work directly with the SmartThings hub. It just depends on whether you were using a US hub or a UK hub and whether you need dimming or just on/off. But you should have several choices in any case.
See the following thread (this is a clickable link). It includes both battery operated and mains powered devices, and both wallmount and hand held devices, so read the descriptions carefully to find what you want.
Ive installed the app and handlers.The smartapp found my Hue B Smart bridge and username. But i keep getting the message “No sensors found yet, wait a minute or so…”. Did i miss a step somewhere? I use motion sensors and switches
Im new here so maybe im doing things wrong. Anyway im going to my smartapps, click on the log link at the left bottom, but theres no errors there. I do see some changes in the log when for example i searc for sensor instead of switch:

Also where do you want me to press “done”?In the main screen i only have “save”. Or do you mean at one of the select screens?
yes it does. It seems to find the Hue B hub with no problems. If it cannot communicate with it it wouldnt get all the info back like the username and ip adress. The app is working correctly, it just cannot find any sensors.
you can see in the IDE if it is about a specific app. Go into live logging and wait until messages start showing that are related to hue sensor (connect), then click on he sensor (connect) now you have only debug for these. If you can do me a favor and delete the smart app once more, and after the delete, start live logging and re add the app and let logging run for a while, and paste me the output after a couple of minutes…thanks a mill!
i think i see what is going on…in “normal” super lan connect mode only the last 6 digits of the mac are stored as serialnumber, eg my last 6 digits are 0AF130…Hue B gives the whole mac as serialnumber. That might cause the problem of not detecting sensors…
The username is on the screen when starting the app. It is only a placeholder text though, meaning i have to copy the username in there myself aswell.
About the application state. No, i see no info there.
Is there anything i can do about the serial number thing? Id really love this app to work. Im ahppy with how Hue B works, just its missing the switches and motion. If your app will work with hue b it would be the ideal setup for me!
