This example provides additional features to your HUE lamps. Using our HTTP driver and your HUE lamps, additional effects can be created using variety of different options.

Suggestion: access your Philips HUE app, disable DHCP, and place a fixed IP address on your network so you can point to the correct IP address every time.

Step 1:

https://hub_address/debug/clip.html

URL: /api

Message Body: {"devicetype":"comfortclick#dev"}

Click on the hub link button (the top round button on the hub with Philips written on it)

Click on POST

Copy the given username to a safe place, you'll need it for every command.

On this implementation, we want to blink all the lights on a specific light group, so we'll fetch the group number.

Step 2:

URL: https://hub_address/api/your_username/groups

Message Body: leave the message body empty

Click on GET

In this case, the light group we want is ID 1

URL: https://hub_address/api/your_username/groups/1/action

Message Body: {"alert": "select"}

Click on PUT

If it blinks once, perfect. Now you're ready to move to bOS.

There's two available commands for blinking: just once, or several. Depending on what you want, you'll have to change the Message Body for the correct code:

{"alert": "select"} will cause a short blink {"alert": "lselect"} will cause several seconds of blinking

If you need to blink several times, you'll need to use {"alert": "lselect"} on the Message Body.

Step 3:

Enable the HTTP device

Host URL: https://hub_address/api/your_username/groups/1/action

Create a Command, call it "Blink HUE"

Change the command method type to PUT

On Put Data, insert: {"alert": "lselect"}
