From time to time i got this error, see photo in the main loop from the "SA HUE Preview 1.1" 

The only solution for now is to restart my HC2 to get my lights working again.


How can this be fixed?


HC2 - V4.620


Response from the author:

Hello @samuel,


Sorry to see that you have some problems with HUE control. From provided debug screenshot it seems that global variables get destroyed and after rebuilding them something get wrong in showing lights on VD.


First step to solve this problem is to find what causes global variable destruction. In most cases is using SAVE button in global variable panel, but can be also caused by some other causes.


Since I'm now working on UHAS and support for HUE API v2 all my resources are used and can't test this problematic version at this moment. Please also check previous comments here, maybe there is some solution provided already for this problem.


Apologies for the inconvenience.

Merci Sankotronic !

Encore un excellent travail, avec un mode d'emploi très clair. La variation de température manquait clairement par rapport au vd du marketplace.

Enorme Merci

The Fibaro HUE plug-in is missing an essential option to control the color temperature of HUE lights. The main reason I bought the HUE lights is because of the nice warm colors of its bulbs, but with plug-in from Fibaro this can't be set.


With the Philips HUE AIO software I can now control the color temperare (and more) of hue lights.

The download contain a good manual also. Excellent work! Thank you very much.

Very glad to have found this coding. Thank you Sankotronic!

I have struggled quite some time with the Hue plugin in the Fibaro marketplace. That one is however heavily outdated. 
Now devices can be used from within the Fibaro app and even original Hue scenes that I used a lot are now completely controlled from within Fibaro.

Awesome! this does what the fibaro marketplace app should have done!
