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.

Hi everyone,
a couple of months later I come back to diyHue for the following reason and with the following question:

I’ve implemented ways to control floor heating and blinders in my house with the usage of shellys which are controled by HA-Bridge as lights and integrated with my main homeautomation system from Deutsche Telekom (Magenta Smarthome = MSH).

HA-Bridge is somewhat outdated and it seems there is now update to current requirements. HA-Bridge has only implemented Hue API V1 (V1.17.0) and as of Aug 15 MSH has stopped supporting Hue API V1 all my integrations between shellys and the physics controlled by the shellys (floor heating & blinds) on one hand and MSH on the other hand are broken.

Here comes my question:
Can I connect HA-Bridge which only emulates a Hue bridge running Hue API V1 to diyHUE and use diyHue as a kind of proxy offfering a Hue API V2?

If yes i could connect my HA-Brdige (running Hue API V1) to diyHUE (running Hue APi V2) and connect diyHUE with the connected HA-Brdige to MSH. What do you think, could that work?

I’m looking forward to your feedback!

Best regards
