Is it possible to add a second hue account/bridge to the new Homey bridge and if so how??
The notes say that multiple bridges is possible on the Homey bridge but the link is now via the cloud and I can’t see how you connect a second account
Any advice would be welcomed
Multiple Hue bridges is only possible in the Homey Pro (LAN connected).
For wat we have seen Homey Cloud connects to the Hue Cloud and that supports maximum of one Hue bridge.
The Hue app on Homey supports a maximum of one Hue account at a time.
When I look at the app details via Homey app it says the following
“ Connect your Philips Hue lights & accessories with Homey. This app requires the Philips Hue Bridge. It is possible to use more than one bridge.”
Are you saying this is incorrect?
Also only lights and plugs are showing up. What about accessories??
Unfortunately that’s Pro related info.
The beta was released before all the info was updated.
But I notice they’re busy with that also.
Also this is a good comparison topic.
Those aren’t supported for Homey Cloud/Bridge. The way Athom has set up the Hue app (using polling) means that especially sensor/accessory support uses quite a lot of bandwidth that Athom isn’t willing to pay for.
I presume the limitations of the bridge will permanently prevent it from ever supporting multiple Hue accounts (unless Hue fix this stupid problem) and it will be down to Athom as to whether accessories will be supported??
