It could be because of a bad internet connection, proximity issues, or a faulty bridge. In this article, I will show you some of the main reasons why your hue bridge fails to connect and how to fix them. Philips Hue is one of the most well-known smart home brands out there with some of the best smart home lighting equipment in the world and some great hue apps to accompany, however like other pieces of technology they have their shortcomings.
In our previous article about the most common Philips Hue connection issueswe showed an image of the hue bridge and what each light means see below. In the issues listed above the first thing you should always do is to restart your hue bridge. Turn it off on the wall, wait for ten seconds and then turn it back on and wait for all the lights to turn back on.
The reason this is effective is because it will give it enough time to forget the previous connection and try to reconnect to the internet again. If this does not fix the issue you might have a bad integration with Alexa or your app.
You should always check your internet connection as well if the issue persists. You should also check that your Ethernet cable is actually working, try connecting it to a PC to see if it actually connects because that could be your simple fix. Another thing you can do is to clear the cache on your Hue app. Read this article on how to clear app cache on an android phone and on an iPhone or iPad.

With these simple fixes you should have your hue bridge connected and working again. Check out our list of must-have Philips hue apps to get now for iOS and Android.

Anyways, so I just turned the wifi setting back on, in my phone and immediately the Phillips Hue App connected to the bridge. Problem solved.

How you control your lights depends on whether you have a Hue Bridge. Certain Philips Hue lamps and light fixtures come with a Dimmer switch, which can be used out of the box to turn on and off the lights, dim and brighten, and cycle through four preset light scenes if purchased with a White ambiance bulb.
If your lamp did not come with a Dimmer switch, you can only turn on and off the light. If you pair your lights with a Hue Bridge, you can then operate all your lights within the Hue app. You can also use a smart home assistant to control your lights with your voice. You can see the status of your product and system updates in the Hue app:. Make sure your Hue Bridge is plugged in and powered on. You should see four blue LED indicator lights on top of the Bridge.
Navigate to Settings to make sure you are logged in to your Hue account in the Philips Hue app. If you are not, log in with your username and password. If you cannot log in, check the settings in your Hue account at www. The Philips Hue ecosystem uses industry-standard encryption and authentication techniques to protect against unauthorized users gaining access to your Philips Hue products.
Hue only connects to the internet securely via a dedicated cloud so your devices cannot be seen from the open internet. Hue products update regularly with the latest security fixes and patches — a feature you can activate by linking your Hue Bridge with a Hue account on www.
For more assistance on protecting your home network, contact your internet service provider. Tap the Add a light button in the top left corner and follow the on-screen instructions. All Philips Hue light fixtures are fully compatible with the Hue ecosystem. Some can be used as standalone light fixtures, while others require a Hue Bridge in order to operate. However, all Hue products can connect to a Bridge for advanced control via the Hue app. You can use Hue Beyond without a Bridge, but you cannot do anything more than turning the light on or off with the main switch.
The color temperature is a fixed soft white. Add your Beyond to a Hue Bridge to unlock full control with the Hue app. You can turn on the Hue Bloom by plugging it in, but you cannot change the color of the light or use any other advanced features without connecting it to a Hue Bridge. You can identify all richer color bulbs by their white base, with the exception of the BR30 bulb. The older BR30 bulb features a gray rim, while the richer color version does not.
Philips Hue Lightstrips for indoor use feature an adhesive backing that makes it easy to attach to walls, floors, cabinets, and any other indoor furniture or item quickly and semi-permanently.
Outdoor light strips come with clips to fasten them to the ground or outdoor structures. To use a Philips Hue Lightstrip, you must first plug it in to a power source.
When the Lightstrip shines bright white, you can connect it to the Hue Bridge the same way you would add a light to your Hue system. If the Hue app cannot find the light strip even when entering the serial number in place of the automatic search, the Lightstrip may be out of reach of the Hue Bridge. To fix this, you can move the light strip closer to the Hue Bridge or move other Philips Hue smart lights between the Bridge and the strip lighting; Hue smart lights conveniently extend the wireless signal of the Hue Bridge.
Certain light fixtures come with a Hue Dimmer switch to make it easier for customers without a Hue Bridge to control their lights.GitHub is home to over 40 million developers working together to host and review code, manage projects, and build software together.

Additionally I have tried to complete discovery using the alexa. I have only 1 sensor connected to the conbee at the minute and that is a Xiaomi Aura Temperature Humidity Sensor since I reset everything. I have looked at and a few others but still no joy.
From a tcp dump on the pi during the discovery process I can see what appears to be the devices talking to each other which is encouraging GET request with a response?
Home, length 46 I've had another fiddle today but still no joy. I can open this as a web page during discovery and its empty because I had no lights linked up at this stage. I have now added a smart bulb and alexa finds and connects this during discovery but still no sensors.
Please can someone let me know if the alexa integration is just for lights and that is why I'm not finding any sensors. The native build-in Hue support of Alexa is very basic and does only lights, and not even colour lights I believe. So yes, it is expected to not find any sensors.IKEA TRADFRI motion sensor is much smarter in NodeRED
The way around is to either develop a deCONZ alexa skill yourself or use homebridge-hue in combination with homebridge-alexa which I use and works very well. This issue has been automatically marked as stale because it has not had recent activity.

But in my case, I cannot discover it with Alexa. I enable the Hue skill then open the gateway and finally start the discovery.
And I never find it. When I start detection, it says that I should enable the associated connected home skill translated from French if not already enabled and it starts discovering for up to 20 seconds then fails. Should also work we had testet it a while ago, but it was important not to use or even install? Just ran a test after disabling the Hue skill and still not able to discover my bridge. Is there anything I can test to figure out what happening?
Is there any issue with homebridge -hue running at the same time I don't think so but you never know. I have an nginx server running on this port. So that's probably the reason of my issues. I'll come back here as soon as I reconfigured my reverse proxy. Unfortunately, that did not fix the issue. Note that once, I was below the step of searching for 20 seconds and I was asked to switch on my switches and lamps, then an error occured in Alexa, and I was back to unsuccessful 20 seconds discovery.
It can do this only when they both are in the same network with no network switches in between. Also deCONZ must be allowed to bind to shared portwhich other services running on the same port might prevent. Hello, I have the same problem. Alexa can't find any devices. Deconz is running on port How can I figure out if UDP port is used? I ran another test following manup advice of having no switch between the machine running deconz and the Echo.
Alexa discovered my home device but was not able to find all the lights!! After that, I tried another test but Alexa did not find any new device. Maybe I should delete the found devices and run a new discovery. The machine running it was connected to the same WiFi access point as Alexa, so this latter should find it too. Oh, Fritz! Better connect everything to a switch and use only one port on the Fritz. Thanks for your quick response, I'll order a switch and follow your instructions.
I'll report back :.
