Hue (re) discovery unreliable?

For the last week or two I have been finding that when I restart HA some or even most of the time it does not rediscover my Hue bridge. Neither the router nor the bridge have been restarted and the host machine also has not been restarted, just HA. If I reboot the host it usually if not always fixes the problem, and sometimes if I restart HA 2 or 3 times it will eventually pickup the Hue.

Has anyone else seen similar behavior?

Why not specify the ip address of the Hue hub?

Good idea :slight_smile: I’ll see if that helps - thanks.

Things seem to be a lot better now - thanks again!

Yeah I had a similar issue a couple months back. Found that it works a lot better if you specify the IP instead of simply using the default discovery.
