Help with Hue Emulation on Windows

  • Platform information:
    • Hardware: Intel x86
    • OS: Windows 11
    • Java Runtime Environment: Zulu 11
    • openHAB version: 3.4.2

I am trying to get the Hue Emulation working on my Windows 11 install. The add-on seems to install and be running OK as it shows this in the log: Hue Emulation UPNP server started on

However, when I try to access localhost:8080/api/status it cannot find that page? And, of course, Alexa on my mobile phone finds no devices. localhost:8080/description.xml seems to be OK. Is there a step I am missing? Thanks.

Not sure about your /API/status issue (have you checked the right protocol http vs https and if the url is case sensitive?), but for Amazon echo you need to change the port.

As per the documentation:

Some devices like Amazon Echo, Google Home and all Philips devices (TVs, Apps) expect a Hue bridge to run on port 80.

Thanks for the help. I changed openHAB to run on port 80 and can now see the api/status page, however, when I turn “pairing mode” on in openHAB the Alexa app still does not discover any devices. One odd thing is that I have the setting of the “Lighting” tag filter to expose lights, but while I have only tagged one as Lighting it still shows all my lights on the api/testuser/lights page?
