Hue Connect app is missing - Can not delete Hue Bridge


(Dave Foster) #1

I wanted to add an additional hue blub to ST. I first went into the Hue App and added it. No problems.
But when I came into ST, that new bulb was nowhere. I tried to Add a Thing. Nothing. I tried to go into the Hue Connect App… but it’s missing.
I have the Hue Hub in the Things list, but the Connect app is gone.
So, I can’t add this bulb.

Something I’m missing?

They removed Hue Connect and all other LAN Connect devices with the last app update.


Hue Connect disappeared!

Thanks for that update. I called Smartthings and they said “We’re working on it”. I tried to delete the Hue Bridge from the ST app but it won’t go away. Nothing I do will remove it. Even thru the api web app. Nothing. It just stays.

So now that SmartThings has screwed things up with the Hue, how are we supposed to be able to fix this?

Currently, I have two “devices” showing for the Philip Hue hub…the original one that was broken by a SmartThings update a number of months ago, and a new entry (that matches with the Hue Connect I had working until yesterday).

It “seems” like I might be able to fix something if I could edit the IP address of the device entry, as currently they’re both pointing at the wrong one (my Hue hub is on a static IP and hasn’t changed in over a year, so it’s not a DHCP issue).

Do I need to contact support directly?

This thread:

Lots of people are posting issues with the update. Apparently a cache failure. It needs to be reset.
Post on that thread, and ST Staff will (potentially) fix it.
It worked for me. Everything is working for me now.

So my Hue lights are working but the Things view states they are either “turningon” or “turning off”. Is there a way for me to fix this? My automations are working and Alexa is working but I can not turn them on/off in the STs app. The Hue app works as well.
