Exception ignored in: <function Light.del at 0x7f85665dd1f0>
Traceback (most recent call last):

We are so sorry, but something went terribly wrong when starting or running this add-on.

Be sure to check the log above, line by line, for hints.

Resolved by uninstalling initial diyHue instance, manually deleting the diHue folder entirely, and reinstalling the add-on.
