How to Pair Philips Hue Bulbs With Conbee 2

A small guide to pairing your bulps with Conbee II

I have started the journey into the rabbithole that is smart home automations/Home Assistant.

Doing so I have gotten a little frustrated when realizing that almost every guide to doing anything is a 5 minutes YouTube video. Therefore I decided to do a series of guides for pairing bulps and other perifirels with Conbee

You need a Philips Hue bulb and an Hue Remote

  • Turn on the bulb
  • While holding the remote next to the bulb, press and hold the on and the off buttons
  • Wait for the light to flicker. When they stop release the on and off buttons on the remote
  • Set the Conbee to search for lights
  • Turn the bulb off and on. The bulb should register with Conbee

Easy, and you didn’t even have to watch a 5 minutes video ;)
