Hello,


My Philips Hue changed IP number. How do i update it's IP number in Zipabox because all my lights refuse to work. When i use the API to get the Philips Hue config, i can find the wrong IP number. But how do i alter it? Can i use the API to set the IP number to something else?


Thanks in advance.

Perhaps you can change it in your router. The Hue uses DHCP and gets IP adress from the router. Perhaps you can give your HUE a fixed IP adress.

I've given my bridge a static IP, however that ipaddress is still in my DHCP range. I'd like to move it out of the DHCP range and in order to do that i will need to change my Bridge IP in the Zipabox.


Since an option exists in the API to get and set the config i am hoping i can change it's IP address, if not i will need to readd the bridge and all my lights and modify all my rules. I'd really like to avoid that.
