These scripts will change the colors of your Philips Hue lights based on the C4 bomb status in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.

CS:GO C4 Hue Lights

The Node.js version can be found here: csgo-c4-hue-node


  • Each light blinks red 1-by-1 when bomb has been planted.
  • All lights blink red when bomb has been planted for at least 30 seconds.
  • All lights turn orange when bomb has exploded.
  • All lights turn blue when bomb has been defused.
  • All lights turn white when there is no bomb status.


  1. Copy gamestate_integration_c4_hue.cfg to your CS:GO cfg directory.

OS X: /Users/<username>/Library/Application Support/Steam/SteamApps/common/Counter-Strike Global Offensive/csgo/cfg

Windows: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Counter-Strike Global Offensive\csgo\cfg

  1. Install Python 2.7 if your machine doesn't have it.
  2. Install Flask via pip.

OS X: pip install flask

Windows: C:\Python27\Scripts\pip.exe install flask

  1. Edit and fill in the values for your hue bridge IP and hue user.


HUE_USER = '1a2a3a4a5a6a7a8a9a0a'


Run both and scripts while playing CS:GO.

The script will be receiving the gamestate data from CS:GO and it will write the bomb status to the file named bomb_status.

The script will be reading the bomb_status file every 250 ms and will change the hue lights depending on what is in that file.


How to get hue bridge IP

To get your hue bridge IP, visit:

How to make a hue user

You can make a new user by going to the API Debug Tool: http://<your hue bridge ip>/debug/clip.html

For the url input box, enter /api.

For the message body, enter {"devicetype":"csgo_c4#user"}

Now you can press the link button on the bridge and then click the POST button in the API Debug Tool.

You should see a success message along with "username": "<long random character string>" in the command response area.

The long random character string is what needs to be copy/pasted into

You can’t perform that action at this time.
