Hi OH Community,

So continuing on my openhab journey my next question is How do I setup philip hues scenes on open hab?

I’ve managed to add a power button, colour and brightness interfaces to my UI and all of them working. But for the Scenes I haven’t been able to create a list of the scenes (I’ve saved more than one off the official app) it keeps showing NULL as the only value.

I’m not sure what to do or how to setup this widget up properly. Any help on would be great. And I can share any code or screen shots required just let me know.

Also I was wondering if you can apply scenes to other devices for example I have ordered a yeelight strip for the kitchen, can I apply scenes to that? so that I can sync the colours up with the living room. I’m just curious about this.

Okay I figured it out.

Seems like the problem was I had created the Scene Thing from the Scene Channel in the AllLights group.

I removed this channel and instead created a new thing with the Scene Channel found on my Philips Hub Binding. That did the trick. :slight_smile:

Still I would like to know if there is a way to connect Scene to my Yeelights as well.
