The Hue integration, and specifically, the sensor manager for handle remotes and motion sensors, works with a polling system which is fixed with a 5s scan interval.
Knowing that a higher request rate normally hurts the hue bridges, but also knowing about the stability of their own systems, some people, like me, want to set a faster rate, or even being able to change it for some specific periods.
As this is not possible in the latest HA Core, I just did this custom integration: https://github.com/azogue/fasthue
- It creates a sensor entity for each hue bridge, showing the current update interval.
- It enables a new service
fasthue.set_scan_intervalto dynamically change the polling interval for each bridge.
- It leaves no trace (and original polling is reinstated) when removed.
- It is HACS compliant, so it can be added to HACS manually and used right now without any HA restart.
- It is only UI configurable
