I’m pulling my hair out here. (didn’t have much to start with)
Whatever I do, I can’t get Hue to connect with ST. I have completely removed Hue from ST now, starting over, which I really didn’t want to do. I’ve confirmed it’s all gone, nothing in IDE.
So, now that I’m staring over, it’s like I’m a new customer, so here I am trying to follow the simple directions to pair my hue system with ST. It just doesn’t work. What boggles my mind is that when I “add a thing” in the classic app, there’s nothing to do to the hue bridge to put it in any kind of “pairing mode”? Even when I go to ‘add device manually,’ and select a hue bulb (very odd that only individual bulbs are listed now) it just stares at me and never finds any hue devices. I’ve reset the hue hub multiple times now, i’ve rebooted the ST hub multiple times… I’ve rebooted my router… i’ve pull the ethernet out of the hub, you name it… nothing, but nothing helps them find each other. Yes they are on the same wired network. This USED to work just fine until it didn’t one day.
Meanwhile, the hue app works fine to control the bulbs, so I know that part is working.
Help! This is not the integration I am looking for!
