Have got a couple of Philips Hue Hubs new in box (grabbed them for the bulbs but don't need any more hubs).

 

Will also chuck in 2x first generation Hue White E27 Screw bulbs to get you started.

 

Have got 2 hubs with bulbs available. Yours for $70 with free shipping.

 

I also have a spare white bulb I can chuck in for an extra $10 to make it a 3 pack.

Hi Michael - Just wondering if/how you use the Hue Hub with HASS? I've currently got a mishmash of wifi and Zigbee bulbs using Zigbee2MQTT and a CC2531 coordinator. Which is great when it works, and super frustrating when it doesn't. Cogitating some kind of simplification - that might be all in on Hue with the Hue Hub (simpler, but would leave the existing Zigbee stuff orphaned). Or possibly muddling through until Matter/Thread is a bit more widespread (aware that a software update will in theory bring Matter/Thread support to Hue.

 

And it is a V2 Hub?

 

Cheers

@mdf Yep is a V2 hub. I have all my hue lights on my hub and HASS has rather good integration with it also meaning I can use the Hue App etc keeping the WAF in check.

So all Hue products (would be looking for lights + switches likely) --> Hue Hub, Hub Hub --> HASS?

 

Do you have any non-Hue Zigbee in parallel? Do they place nicely together or is it a one or the other situation?

@mdf I did have Zigbee2MQTT but got rid of that as it was somewhat unreliable. Just need things to work. Multiple Zigbee networks work fine. While expensive, I do really like the Hue ecosystem as it is well polished and -just works-.

 

I do also have a bunch of LIFX bulbs here: https://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?forumid=77&topicid=302211 (I recall you already using some LIFX).

Oh, go on then. Sign me up. If you're okay with a CBD pickup, we can save some shipping dollars and CO2.

 

LIFX are some of the ones I'm looking to replace. I think I've managed to get a handle on how to best use them after much trial and effort, but now like you looking for the "just works" option.
