Domoticz

diy-hue includes native support for Domoticz lights/switches. As there is no discover process provided by domotics, they must be added manually into ‘’config.json’‘.

Add a new light(s)

  1. Stop the hue-emulator service

sudo systemctl stop hue-emulator

  1. Save ‘’config.json’‘

sudo cp /opt/hue-emulator/config.json /opt/hue-emulator/config.json.bak

  1. Edit config.json

sudo nano /opt/hue-emulator/config.json

  • Add light adress
{
    "lights_address": {
        "3": {
            "ip": "192.168.1.100:8080",
            "light_id": "281",
            "protocol": "domoticz"
        },
    },
}

ip is the Domoticz host

light_id is the light/switch IDX

"protocol": "domoticz" allow diyhue to format the correct request

  • Add light details for hue app
