i don’t know if you know the tool already but diyHue is a great application to simplify and enhance your Hue experience not only with the original Hue lights, sensors and switches but with a lot of different Zigbee devices. With diyHue you have the chance to combine zigbee2mqtt, original hue hubs, CC2531 and a lot of other hubs in one application. It is a real “Hue emulator”.
With the new diyHue Home Assistant Add-on you now don’t need a seperate instance of diyhue running on a separate machine. You now can install diyHue right from inside Home Assistant. Just add this repository to your Add-ons:
The installation process is pretty easy and straight forward, like for any other third-party Home Assistang Add-on.
Add the repository URL under Supervisor → Add-on store → ⋮ → Manage add-on repositories:
Possibilities with diyHue
The Add-on is based on the current master branch of diyhue and is still under development. So i really need feedback of you to improve this Add-on. Thank you very much already and i hope to hear from the first testers soon.
All the best and stay safe!
