Zigbee and Hue Alternative => Dresden Elektronik RaspBee Gateway
just wanted to share with you that there is a very powerfull alternative to Philips Hue Bridge. My "problem" is that I have over 60 hue compatible lights which are connected to 1 Hue Bridge. But unfortunately there is no backup function on the Hue Bridge. So if the bridge crashes I have to setup the whole bridge, all my groups and scenes etc.
Now I found a solution. The Dresden Elektronik RaspBee Gateway. This has a Rest API and a full backup function included. You can find details here: Raspbee
I only got it today and will start testing soon and post updates here.
Hope this will help.
