[TUTORIAL] How to add Philips HUE plugin in less than a minute It works on HC2 FW4.100 to FW4.120 and Philips HUE bridge 1 and Philips HUE bridge 2 Model BSB002 on FW01036659 I write this tutorial because of some disinformation that lately show up here on forum and it seems that source is Fibaro support team? So, for all of you that don't want to mess with [VD] Philips HUE Color & White ambience and White dimmable only v2.1m & v2.1b here is complete tutorial on what needs to be done or checked to successfully add Philips HUE plugin: Proper procedure to add Philips HUE plugin: Open your preferred browser and open your router settings and check DHCP server settings. If you don't know how, then go to the big brother Google and ask him to show you how to setup DHCP server on your model of router. If that doesn't help then ask your IP provider to do that for you. You need to check DHCP server what IP range is set that will give to devices connected to your home network. I suggest to set range from 100 to 254 (192.168.1.100 - 192.168.1.254) That is more than enough even for larger home networks! See example: There is anther way to bind specific IP address to device MAC address but then again you need to open settings of your router and find DHCP server and then there you may or you may not find it because not all routers support this feature. Anyway, if you want to have some serious HA (home automation) you will need to make space in IP address range for devices that can be setup with static IP address like HUE bridge, Philips TV, iTach IP2IR, NAS disk, cameras, etc.) but also you will need IP address binding for some other devices like Smarter coffee machine, iKittle, Sonos multi-room speakers etc. This IP binding looks like this: After you did first step then download some network scanning application or program and scan your network to make sure that all devices with DHCP turned on are moved to the IP range set for DHCP server. Also you will then see what IP addresses are free in lower range that can be used for devices that you will set to STATIC IP address. See example from Fing scanner on iOS: Now open new HUE application that supports HomeKit on your mobile device and go to Settings --> Hue bridges and tap on i to open Info/Setup screen. There you will see Network settings so tap on it to open it. You will see this screen: Remember or write down address of the Gateway. Netmask is in most cases set to 255.255.255.0 for private home networks and if yours is different then you know all about this anyway . Also note current IP address of the HUE bridge especially first three numbers in address! Turn off DHCP and then enter IP address, first three numbers as before and then one that didn't show on network scanner, like 192.168.1.20, then Netmask and same Gateway address that was before. Confirm and confirm and yes, confirm. Wait a little bit and then restart application if necessary and check that it is working. Make sure that all HUE applications on mobile devices are CLOSED and that no one is playing with HUE! Open HC2 web GUI interface and install HUE plugin. When it show up on the screen with that nice color stripe don't stare at it but click on Advanced tab to see this: Click on IP address Search button and wait until it shows bridge you want to add then select it so IP address will show up in IP address field Polling timeout(seconds) is by default set to 1 second. That is ridicules for any HUE system with more than 10 bulbs and completely unnecessary. Set pooling to at least 3 to 6 seconds. More bulbs more seconds! Press SAVE button!!! Now walk to your HUE bridge, say hello and then press button on top of it! Run back to computer with open HC web GUI interface and quickly press button Create user. Wait 10 to 20 seconds and scratch for a reason: Now press Start search button Scratch for a reason again and then go to home page (click on Your house on top menu bar) Scroll home page down to Unassigned You should see this picture TADA!!! One HUE device with name "Philips HUE" is actually master plugin and you can make it hidden or leave it in Unassigned room. It really doesn't control any bulb and if you delete it then all others will be deleted too! Devices that have number in their name are controlling bulbs and that number is actually ID number of the bulb. To rename HUE devices from ID number to some normal name of the bulb you don't need to run around the house like a rooster! Open HUE HomeKit application tap on the bottom right of the screen on Setting and then select About! That number that you see in front of the bulb name is same number that is on plugin device of each bulb! Please when you add HUE plugin to report back here so we can make a list of compatible HC2 firmwares and HUE bridges. At the moment I tested and can confirm that this combinations should work: HC2 4.100 - HUE Bridge 1 - HUE Bridge 2 BSB002 HC2 4.110 - HUE Bridge 1 - HUE Bridge 2 BSB002 HC2 4.120 - HUE Bridge 2 BSB002 TIPS & TRICKS Did you know: That if you delete plugin device of one HUE bulb (not the master one) that it will reappear again in Unassigned room?!?! So if you accidentally deleted some HUE bulb plugin device DON'T PANIC! Just refresh HC web GUI page and it should come back! ( Sankotronic added 05/04/2017) That HUE plugin slider doesn't update on web GUI interface but it does on mobile applications! So, when you are staring at web GUI interface don't think that something is wrong with your HUE bulb or that plugin doesn't work because it does, just web GUI has problem with updating sliders not only of this plugin but also from other devices! (Sankotronic added 05/04/2017) That you need to press button on HUE plugin to turn On/Off light. If you move brightness slider and light is off nothing will happen. On Philips HUE VD you can use both brightness slider and button to turn HUE light On/Off (Sankotronic added 05/04/2017) That Philips HUE bridge is using same frequency range of 2.4GHz as WIFI routers and access points. Even they are not talking same language (protocol) they can make noise to each other. Philips HUE bridge is using 2.4GHz frequency and offers four different channels 11, 15, 20 and 25. WiFi routers use same frequency range of 2.4GHz but offers channels 1 to 14 or more in some very rare cases. Usually WIFI routers or access points channel selection is set to Automatic and in most cases channels 1, 6 or 11 are used. I recommend to change that to fixed channel. Here is a picture of mostly used WiFi 2.4GHz channels from one study: You can pickup any of those channels with small column if you have only one WiFi router and no other access points. But if you have at least two WiFi devices then since WiFi channels are overlapping the best is to set them on channels 3, 8 and 13 or 4, 9 and 14(if exists on your device) and avoid using channels 1, 6 and 11. But since now we have also Philips HUE bridge that is using 2.4GHz bandwidth then it is very important how we will select channels on both devices, WIFI and Zigbee to avoid any interference at all. Philips HUE bridge is by default set on channel 11. Here are tables with channel frequencies for WIFI and Zigbee: WIFI CHANNEL FREQUENCIES (highlighted recommended channels) ZIGBEE 2.4GHz CHANNEL FREQUENCIES with highlighted HUE bridge channels As you can see from above tables, Zigbee CH11 is overlapping with WIFI CH1 but if you set your WIFI router to CH8 and leave Philips HUE bridge on CH11 then their signal will not overlap and make trouble to each other. So if you have problems with unresponsive bulbs or delays then check your WIFI router or access point channels settings and change from Automatic (that is case in 90%) to recommended ones. Also it is good practice not to place WIFI router and Philips HUE bridge near to each other. I had problems in the past with unresponsive HUE bulbs until I relocated my WIFI access point two meters away from HUE bridge and I also set WIFI channel. (Sankotronic added 08/04/2017) More T&T will come so stay tuned! If you have one please send me to PM and contribute to the good cause!

Hi - how integrate Russound AV system and Stealth Acoustics speakers - do they both have plugins or Virtual Devices which can be downloaded? Has anyone done it yet? regards - Sanjaya [email protected]
Hi, I have a Fibaro HC2 and I would like to be able to use the Fibaro to control my two Dyson Pure Cool Air Purifiers to switch on to maintain a preset temparature using the builtin temparature sensor and remote capability already provided with these units. These are very popular household devices along with the robot vacuum. Has anyone produced a plugin? Fibaro and Dyson are missing an opportunity here, perhaps someone should contact Dyson to see if they will work with Fibaro to produce a plugin? I look forward to the deluge of comments on my first posting to this forum.... Cheers.
Netatmo Plugin does not update weather dataHello, everybody, I use the HC2 with the current firmware version 4.570. I would like to install my netatmo weather station (indoor and outdoor module) using the existing plug-in. I get access to the weather data, but unfortunately the weather data is not updated. The only update I can achieve by restarting the HC2. I have already created a 2nd app at netatmo, experimented with the query timer (different values between 60 and 3660) all without success. I have also deleted and reinstalled the plugin several times, all in vain. The displayed values remain constant until the restart of HC2, no matter what the weather is doing. Now my concerns: Does anyone have a LUA script where I can actively fetch the values in a certain time grid at netatmo, because the plugin obviously does not fetch the values regularly or only after a HC2 restart. Thanks in advance for your help

Is there anyway to control Sonos Plugin via scenes ?
developertas posted a question in Home Center 2Hello friends, I would like to control my sonos devices via scenes. It seems not possible to do that with common ways. So maybe someone in this forum already did that via http methods, rest apis etc. Would be great help if someone has any idea about that. Thanks in advance.
rozwiniecie pluginu philips hueOd pewnego czasu w aplikacji hue można ustawić zachowanie żarówek po włączeniu, fajnie by było gdyby udało się to zrobić za pomocą pluginu w HC, ustawiając w zależności od pory dnia barwę światła.
DENON Plugin not working
ianakapilotlight posted a topic in FIBARO ProductsI have a Denon AVRX-2300 amplifier. I was expecting the Denon plug in to work with it. Having installed the 1.0 version and clicking the search button to find the Denon amplifier, selecting the IP address from the pop up dialog. The amplifier does not respond to any commands sent to it using the UI provided in the plugin. Has anyone else experience similar difficulties?

kdikomunismo posted a question in Home Center 2Hi everyone, I installed KODI plugin in HC2 and now I have a sort of remote which I can use to control it in Fibaro interface, but how do I get Kodi to start scenes? I understood that I can, for example, turn off the lights when I play something in Kodi, but how? Do I have to install and configure a plugin in Kodi too? Which one? As usual, Fibaro documentation is totally non existent, so I need some help...

Please add the scene to any another time based scene (ex for 2 time call by day) Explication of scene.

It add to pooling time of netatmo plugin 5s or subtract 5s, alternately and after this check any change in plugin. Result of this is restart of netatmo plugin.
Gondo posted a question in Home Center LiteHello, I'm just deciding which gateway I should buy - HC 2 or HC Lite. I don't need voice control, VOIP, master controller or LUA. I plan connect 5 thermostats, 7 blind controllers, some door and window sensors, 2 water leak sensors, sliding gate, 3 RGBW controllers and maybe some power outlets. The only difference between HC 2 or HC Lite I've found are plug-ins. But I didn't find any info about them. Are they important? What are plug-ins for? The price of HC 2 is more than double than HC lite. Are the plug-ins worth for this price?
Netatmo as weather provider
iainw posted a question in Other Devices / Third-party devicesHi, can anyone tell me whether it's possible to use the Netatmo plugin to supply the default weather info to the HC2? I currently use the Yahoo plugin and don't seem to be able to select the Netatmo plugin for this. I can use Netatmo ok in scenes, just not the main weather info. Thank you,

OUTDOOR AIR QUALITY data import to scene
gomark posted a topic in Home AutomationHi all, I tried to find similar topic, but without expected success. I'm wondering if it is possible to import the "OUTDOOR AIR QUALITY" indicator from NETATMO sensor to the LUA scene via API? Has anyone of you tried similar solution or maybe wrote a scene which can perform such action? Your advice would be much appreciated. Thanks

Nest on 4.12
Smartelite posted a question in Home Center 2Hello guys Any news on the Nest plug ins? Any solution other than IFTT? On the 4.12 there is no NEST plug ins at all Thanks in advance
L.S. There are plugins, which are used only once for configuration. After that they are only taking place in gui. Please add the posibility to make plugins hidden in system like the other devices. Thanks for your attention.
