Python-Hue

Python client for the Philips Hue lighting system. I figured out almost all of this by monitoring the traffic on my router. I then found https://github.com/alistairg/IndigoHue/blob/master/Hue.indigoPlugin/Contents/Server%20Plugin/plugin.py which gave some clues about RGB support and the magic strings (select, lselect) to send alerts.

Sample Usage is not docs:

from hue import Hue;
h = Hue(); # Initialize the class
h.station_ip = "192.168.1.222"  # Your base station IP
h.get_state(); # Authenticate, bootstrap your lighting system
l = h.lights.get('l3') # get bulb #3
l.bri(0) # Dimmest
l.bri(255) # Brightest
l.rgb(120, 120, 0) # [0-255 rgb values]
l.rgb("#9af703") # Hex string
l.on()
l.off()
l.toggle()
l.alert() # short alert
l.alert("lselect") # long alert
l.setState({"bri": 220, "alert": "select"}) # Complex send

Have fun! Let me know how you're using it.
