Hello,
you seem to be a new user to openHAB. You should start by reading the documentation and following along a few examples. What you are asking for is easy to achieve (that’s what openHAB is made for) but you’ll have to go at it step by step.

  • Integration of Philips Hue lights is done through an add-on. Read up on that.
  • Presentation and Control of Switches on the Android app is done by defining a Sitemap in openHAB. Read up on that.
  • MQTT is not needed for your simple use case.
