the new Echo Plus from Amazon contains a ZigBee Smart Home hub, which can be used to control Philips Hue lamps.
Is it possible to use this integrated hub together with the OpenHab Hue binding? Or is this integrated hub only accessible from Alexa, but not from OpenHab?
Any new about that? Is it possible to control Hue Bulbs connected with Echo Plus from openHab?
If I understood the Echo Plus correctly, it contains a ZigBee hub (in order to control the bulbs, of course), but it has no API that can be used from OpenHab. The API is only accessible via Alexa Skills.
Some links I found:
Thanks for investigating in this.
