Frinds of hue

Hi All
Dose anybody know how to install a frinds of Philips hue?

Thanks in advance Jakob

There are 2 hue apps for homey. 1 with bridge and 1 direct on homey.

The one with bridge, you could try to add the friends with hue stuf, could work but no guarantee according the info on the app page.

The one directly on homey you can see on the app page witch devices are supported in the app.

I would like to use it without the hub from Hue.
But then i cant finde my device from Jumitech?

Just because a device is called “friends with hue” doesn’t mean it will be supported by both Homey Philips Hue apps (most likely not at all, so neither (both) of them).

Friends of hue devices are just a brand of zigbee devices (that can work with the Philips Hue bridge), and there is where it stops for Homey, most (none light) friends of hue brands aren’t supported by the Hue Bridge app (inside Homey).
As for the Hue Zigbee app (direct to Homey) it will never be supported as it is just a different brand, and thus needs an app specific for this brand, in your case “Jumitech” as there is no app for Jumitech in the Homey app store, it will only have on/off support until an app is created.

I have the friends of hue Scenic Gira switch. I paired it with Philips Hue own app and imported it with Homey Hue app for the bridge. It is imported a a philips hue Tap.

Works just fine with Homey.

When this doesn’t work you can try to make a scene in Philips Hue own app. You then have the ability to use the scene in a flow in Homey. So there are some solutions. Not all will work, but with a little bit off luck

So after you have imported it. Can you then remove the hue bridge?
