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 ;)
