Unable to connect a diyHue lamp to the Phillips Hue Bridge


I have set up a Lamp from diyHue and over the web-interface I can controll it, but I can´t connect it with the official Phillips Hue Bridge via the official app.The Serial Monitor of the Arduino IDE shows: “freeing allocated params!”, after I started the ESP. Does anyone know why it doesn´t connect? Sorry for bad English it isnt my native language.

Welcome! What sketch did you use? What microcontroller? You can’t connect diy Lights to a official hue bridge. You need the diyhue emulator to simulate a bridge.

I used an ESP-WEMOS-D1 mini

and I used the following code, but i modified the Subnetwork in the IP-Adress.

You will not be able to connect that to the official Philips Hue Bridge. It doesn’t work that way. You have to deploy the DIYHue bridge software on something like a Raspberry Pi. That will connect to the light you created.

Ok I have now set up an Bridge on a Raspberry Pi 3 B+ and it works great now. Thank you for your help.
