Hue Ambiance direct to ST

Hi folks,

I’ve been following the forums but can’t find a solution to my specific use case.
I bought a new Philips Hue Ambiance bulb and it doesn’t appear when I search for new things. I have no Hue bridge so it would of never have connected to one prior.
I’m also stuck on the eu IDE which means I can’t pull from github.

Unlike most other zigbee or z-wave devices there’s no way to initiate pairing mode that I am aware of. So one assumes it remains in this mode until paired.

Any help getting it setup and a pointer to the deviceHandler should I find the thing would also be welcome.

Thanks for your help
