I keep ending up with this result and I can’t find a clue how to overcome this.
BTW: I created a .items file which is probably not quite correct in syntax yet, but that shouldn’t be the cause of a “Not Authorized” error, right?
Also: There is no entry in the log files, when I call the URL.
Help would be very much appreciated. I’m sure it must be some beginners error…
Ehm. Have you read the entire binding documentation? At the beginning it says, that it need to be put in the “authorise mode” like the real Hue bridge and you do this in Paper UI by going to the “Service” section, find Hue Emulation and switch the toggle.
The Switchable issue still exists, but the workaround is discussed in the topic. However, there have been several things fixed post 2.4 in the snapshots. OTOMH, groups now work, groups now also work without a type (as previously), and the levels set are now correct (previously off by 1).
Did you get a fix for this? (The authorization problem and not the device discovery problem). Mine’s acting in the same way since I upgraded my Philips Hue with the app. (My real hue isn’t working either with the same problem).
I know in the Alexa app if you are adding a new device it asks if Hue Ver1 or Ver2. I’m not really sure which version our Hue Emulator is masking as, others need to reply. Is it possible that we have a version difference between Alexa and the OH Hue Emulation bridge?
Version 2 is emulated. But could be that Philips introduced new mechanics recently and Amazon is already using them, which makes the hue emulation incompatible. Just a guess. It worked for me a month ago.
Maybe I get something wrong, but why exactly are you using the emulated hue bridge as a thing ?
The binding discovers it, I know.
But all the devices you will get through this bridge are the emulated ones from openHAB.
And those devices are already present in OH. More or less a circular reference…
So from my perspective there is no need to have a thing representing it, thus I would say that you can just ignore that thing as the actual magic lies within the Hue emulation service.
