Beginners question: does diyHue also support "SW-devices"

Hello All,
I’m new to diyHue but very delighted that I found this place!

If my question is missplaced, pls correct!

I’m using so far HA-Bridge (GitHub - bwssytems/ha-bridge: Home automation bridge that emulates a Philips Hue light system and can control other systems such as a Vera, Harmony Hub, Nest, MiLight bulbs or any other system that has an http/https/tcp/udp interface. This is a compact impl to run on small format computers. This is impl started from this project which is a Software Implementation running on a RPI Zero in my case to extend my SmartHome environment provided by Deutsche Telekom. HA-Bridge connects to my smart home pretending to be Hue-Bridge. In HA-Bridge I’ve written simple Python scripts which are exposed as Hue-lights to my SmartHome environment through HA-Bridge.

Is it possible to sumply use a Python Script and define it as a Hue-light with diyHue?

I’m looking forward to your feedback.

Best regards


I’m not sure that i understand correctly the goal you try to achieve. In DiyHue you can create dummy lights and control them using REST HUE api, but you can also import all the lights from HA-Bridge if this replicate a Hue Bridge by pairing it in DiyHue like an original bridge.
