Hue Light Connected via Amazon Echo


#1

Hey All,

I’m trying to connect a Hue light to HomeKit. The wrinkle is that it uses our Echo Plus as a hub. So it doesn’t show up in the Philips Hue app or the Apple Home app. Really want to add it to my Home though… Any options other than buying a Hue hub?

Thanks!

Maybe via Homebridge?

EDIT: Don’t you need a real Hue bridge to do firmware upgrades?

(I really like the new power-on changes; lamps now keep their state after a power outage instead of going to brightness 100%)
