I’m using two Innr SP 120. These are connect via the Philips Hue app and are working perfectly. But when i’m adding al my lights in Homey these two won’t show up. I want best of both worlds: Connected in the official Philips Hue app and added in Homey with the Athom Philips Hue app. Is this possible?

I have connected a IKEA Trådfri RGB lamp to my philips hue bridge, i can dim it but not change colors in the homey app.

i would need this since my girlfriend cant use the homey app.

Got an Osram Smart+ plug. Seen in Hue android app as on/off device. I hoped it would be possible to add device with Homey Hue app, but it is not detected :frowning:

Hi!
i recently bought the Philips Hue outdoor lightstrip. Unfortunately Hue app do not recognise it and the device is found as “unknown zigbee device”. The found device only allows on and off, no dimming or colour change.

Grateful if the app can be updated to support this new Hue device. (or point me in some direction how to solve it). Thanks!

+1 on this one.

I experiment a lot in Homey 2.0, so my wife decided to stick to the Hue Essentials app. She loves to have both lamps and wall plugs in Hue Essential. The drawback is, as you mention, that SP120 plugs aren’t visible in Homey. Would be fantastic if someone could develop a pull request for this plug. :slight_smile:

The only workaround I found is to add plugs into scenes, and have Homey set Hue -scenes.
