    node-red-contrib-huebridge

    A Philips Hue Bridge emulator to control any kind of lights (or other things for that matter).

    This is a work in progress!

    Linux: Run http server on port 80 as non-root user

    Ref.: stackoverflow

    sudo apt install libcap2-bin
    sudo setcap cap_net_bind_service=+ep `readlink -f \`which node\``
    

    Note 1: The Philips Hue app seems only to be able to connect to port 80.

    Note 2: The above setcap command does not survive a reboot.

    Installation

    To install - change to your Node-RED user directory.

        cd ~/.node-red
        npm install node-red-contrib-huebridge
    

    Nodes in this package

    On/Off Light

    ...

    Dimmable Light

    ...

    Color Light

    ...

    Extended Color Light

    Support colormode 'hs' (hue, saturation), 'xy' (CIE 1931 Chromacity) and 'ct' (color temperature).

    Color Temperature Light

    ...

    Link Button

    Enables pairing.

    topic can be anything (i.e. the node does not use it).

    payload can be anything (i.e. the node does not use it).

    Manage

    ....

    Sensors

    ZGP Switch (Hue Tap)

    Emulate a Hue Tap with it's four buttons.

    topic can be anything (i.e. the node does not use it). payload must be a number. Valid payload numbers: 1, 2, 3, 4.

    ZLL Switch (Hue Wireless Dimmer Switch)

    Not implemented.

    ZLL Presence (Hue Motion Sensor)

    Not implemented.

    ZLL Temperature

    Not implemented.

    ZLL Lightlevel

    Not implemented.

    CLIP Switch

    Not implemented as a node.

    CLIP OpenClose

    Not implemented as a node.

    CLIP Presence

    Not implemented as a node.

    CLIP Temperature

    Not implemented as a node.

    CLIP Humidity

    Not implemented as a node.

    CLIP Lightlevel

    Not implemented as a node.

    CLIP Generic Flag Sensor

    Not implemented as a node.

    Notes

    1. The timezone can be set using the Hue App but these nodes will always use the timezone setup on the server running Node-RED.

    2. HomeKit interface is not implemented.

    3. None of the remote access features will work.

    4. The transfom node will handle transitions but it might not work very well. It does a transition calculation once every 100ms and that might simply be too much depending on your setup.

    Examples

    1. Red at 100% brightness (using hue, saturation - colormode 'hs')
    topic = setstate
    payload (JSON) = {"transitiontime":4,"on":true,"bri":254,"colormode":"hs","hue":0,"sat":254}
    
    1. Green at 100% brightness (using hue, saturation - colormode 'hs')
    topic = setstate
    payload (JSON) = {"transitiontime":4,"on":true,"bri":254,"colormode":"hs","hue":21845,"sat":254}
    
    1. Blue at 100% brightness (using hue, saturation - colormode 'hs')
    topic = setstate
    payload (JSON) = {"transitiontime":4,"on":true,"bri":254,"colormode":"hs","hue":43690,"sat":254}
    
    1. White at 100% brightness (using hue, saturation - colormode 'hs')
    topic = setstate
    payload (JSON) = {"transitiontime":4,"on":true,"bri":254,"colormode":"hs","hue":0,"sat":0}
    
    1. Off
    topic = setstate
    payload (JSON) = {"on":false,"bri":0}
    
    1. On at 100% brightness
    topic = setstate
    payload (JSON) = {"on":true,"bri":254}
