Hue Connect ot importing scenes?


#1

Installed latest iOS smart things app, removed hue bridge and hue connect app. Searched for hue bridge again, which it found with all the lights, but i can’t see where i can bring in the hue scenes?

Has this moved or has this functionality been removed?

thanks

Ok, I have to ask, why did you remove the hue connect app?


(Jason "The Enabler" as deemed so by @Smart) #3

To reinstall the hue connect app, do this…

  • Go To market place
  • Tap on things tab
  • Tap on lights and switches
  • Tap on light bulbs
  • Tap on Phillips
  • Tap on Phillips hue light bulb
  • Tap connect now

This will install the hue connect app.

Edit @bodtwo it looks like I misread your first post. I thought you were having trouble reinstalling the hue connect app. The stock ago does not support scenes.

But, you can use CoRE to reproduce and make better any scenes you’ve got.

I haven’t used the Stock Hue Connect app in quite a while, but last I checked it didn’t support Scenes. I use Hue (ReConnect) to get my scenes and groups.

I gave that a shot a while back but it was really rough. The developer then didn’t seem to eager to make changes. Has it been smoothed out?

I haven’t tried it again because I don’t want to remove all if my bulbs and automations just to find out I don’t like it.

I’ve never had a problem with using it, so I’m probably not the person to ask. However, I am almost certain a community app is the only way to get scenes into smartThings.

I use this and it works very well.

My thanks to infofiend & claytonnj for this.

Oooooo. I didn’t know this existed.
