Hass intergrating with ha-bridge


I have been searching for a while and cannot find an example of anyone getting hass to talk to ha-bridge
I want hass to discover my ha-bridge and “import” the lights so I can setup some automatons
the hass log shows it found the bridge but errors (log below)

Is it possible to even do this or an I barking up the wrong tree?

Did you solve this problem? It seems that I have the same when turning on/off an habridge device.
