HomeMatic addon to control Philips Hue Lighting


This repository is DISCONTINUED. Since I have changed my own environment to Home Assistant and ZHA, I currently have no possibility to further develop or maintain this addon. I only run a CCU instance as an addon in Home Assistant.


  • This addon depends on CUxD

Installation / configuration

  • Download addon package
  • Install addon package on ccu via system control
  • Open Philips Hue addon configuration in system control and add your Hue Bridges (http://ccu-ip/addons/hue/index.html)
  • Set a poll interval if you want to frequently update the state of the CUxD devices with the state from your hue bridge.
  • Click the bridge info button to see the list of lights, groups and scenes.
  • Click on Create CUxD-Dimmmer or Create CUxD-Switch to create a new device.
  • Go to the device inbox in HomeMatic Web-UI to complete the device configuration.

Multi-DIM-Device (28)

You can add the parameter bri_mode:inc to the command. This will keep the brightness difference of the lights in the group when using the dimmer.

hue.tcl usage

/usr/local/addons/hue/hue.tcl <bridge-id> <command>


The bridge-id is displayed on the addon's system control


command description

The request command can be use to send a raw api request. Philips Hue API documentation.

You can add the parameter sleep:<ms> to delay light and group command for the given milliseconds.
