I just got a Hue brigde and Hue bulbs today. I would assume there are benefits of connecting the bulbs to Hue Bridge and then connect the bridge to SmartThings. Can someone clarify how best to integrate Hue bulbs with Smartthings? As I see quite some threads in here about people connection the Hue Bulbs directly to SmartThings.
I installed the bridge, connected to the bridge in the Hue app. Then in the Hue app I connected a couple of bulbs.
And I updated all firmware to latest.
Then in SmartThings app, I have added Hue Bridge as a Thing, but it doesn’t do anythings. I thought that was just to establish the connection.
Then I thought I could add the bulbs by adding a new Thing. But nothing shows.
What am I doing wrong?
