HUE connected smart power plugs

Ste Ra shared this idea 2 years ago

For those who are interested, it is possible to controll smart power/wall plugs connected to HUE bridge. Including IKEA Tradfri.

Bad news (first) - this must be done with virtual switches and HTTP requests in rule creator,

Good news - it works on the local network and it works very reliable and fast!

It works with separate devices and groups as well.The only inconveniance is the feedback if the power plug is switched on by HUE app. My solution for the moment is to baind the every single power plug with cheap ikea light which will returns feedback from HUE to Zipato so to togle the virtual switch.

I have used this guide to work with HUE API.
