Do TCP bulbs work with the Philips Hue hub?


(Cameron) #1

Topic is self explanatory. I see information where the GE and Cree bulbs work with Hue but nothing on the TCP bulbs.


(Tim Slagle) #2

Pretty sure they don’t.



#3

No.

The Hue bridge only works with zigbee-certified bulbs. TCP bulbs use the JenNet IP protocol which was intended as a lower cost alternative to zigbee and uses a different address scheme. Same spectrum, but the devices can’t message each other.
