Blinking HUE lights (new feature for your projects)

Ricardo Pinto | visiontech pt 4 years ago in Devices / HUE updated 4 years ago 7

Hello everyone,

If you're kind of like me, you'll never be satisfied with the basic implementations of your systems.

So today, I've decided to explore the Philips HUE official API.

I know that bOS has already implemented HUE control, but I wanted to use some cool features that are kind of hidden on normal apps: blinking lights!

The purpose of this implementation, is using Philips HUE blinking lights for multi purposes, like blinking when someone rings the door, etc.

You can rely on IFTTT to do that, using the WebHooks, but if you're like me, prefer to keep the most on local network and don't depend on external services.

In this example, what you'll get:

- Access Philips HUE API to create a username key

- Extract the username key

- Create a HTTP device on bOS

- Create a command to send the blinking command to Philips HUE hub

Suggestions: access your Philips HUE app, disable DHCP, and place a fixed IP address on your network so you can point to the correct IP address every time.

Step 1:

- Access the Philips HUE IP address


- Create a username key

URL: /api

Message Body: {"devicetype":"comfortclick#dev"}

Click on the hub link button (the top round button on the hub with Philips written on it)

Click on POST

- Extract the username:

Copy the given username to a safe place, you'll need it for every command.

On my implementation, I want to blink all the lights on a specific light group, so I'll fetch the group number.

Step 2:

- Get the group ID's

URL: https://hub_address/api/your_username/groups

Message Body: leave the message body empty

Click on GET

In my case, the light group I want is ID 1

- Test the communication

URL: https://hub_address/api/your_username/groups/1/action

Message Body: {"alert": "select"}

Click on PUT

If it blinks once, perfect. Now you're ready to move to bOS.

There's two available commands for blinking: just once, or several. Depending on what you want, you'll have to change the Message Body for the correct code:

{"alert": "select"} will cause a short blink
{"alert": "lselect"} will cause several seconds of blinking

If you need to blink several times, you'll need to use {"alert": "lselect"} on the Message Body.

Step 3:

- Create HTTP device on BOS

Enable the HTTP device

Host URL: https://hub_address/api/your_username/groups/1/action

Create a Command, call it "Blink HUE"

Change the command method type to PUT

On Put Data, insert: {"alert": "lselect"}

That's it! Use the command as you want on your project.

On my case, I have the hue blinking when someone rings at my door.

If you want to explore other possibilites, please read the Philips HUE API, available for free. You can do the same on single lights, etc.

I'll post the example on the Examples Page of Comfortclick.

Btw, don't forget to at least say thanks! Most of us here, are either professionals or simple home users. I notice that most of the times someone posts something interesting, no one really cares. So don't just use the examples and don't pretend that you don't care. A simple "Thanks" is more than enough. Don't forget that every example posted here is not paid, it mostly depends on the time and patience of some members.

Happy easter.

Best regards


NetAtmo weather station and Welcome integration

Rait Lotamõis 7 years ago in Devices / Http updated by ComfortClick ComfortClick 3 years ago 22

I'm so happy about getting my NetAtmo integration working, that I wanted to share it with the rest of you people.

This is the device itself

All you need to do is enter the values for strings in the "Settings" section of the device, and you will immediately get the values from one indoor and one outdoor module (which is the typical starter package setup.)  If you have more stations and/or modules then you can easily access them by just duplicating the existing values under the "Weather Station" query and changing the instance number in their "Token name." 

For example: default indoor temperature value = body.devices[0].dashboard_data.Temperature

indoor temperature value for next weather station = body.devices[1].dashboard_data.Temperature

and for modules:

temperature of first module of first station = body.devices[0].modules[0].dashboard_data.Temperature

secondary module of first station = body.devices[0].modules[1].dashboard_data.Temperature

I've also included a WIP section for the NetAtmo Welcome camera. I have yet to figure out how to track persons per name, since their position in the table is always changing.


HEX for text

imperialbms 7 years ago in Devices / Basic updated by Dániel Czibolya 3 years ago 1

I'm new, and I'm having trouble displaying the current text from the DENON AVR amplifier. The text is only displayed in HEX format, do you know how much this value can be converted to text?


anyone using amazon echo?

Andy Gill 7 years ago in bOS Configurator / Devices updated by Jose Puig 6 years ago 8

just got an Echo and it impressive, anyone working with it and BOS?



Jürgen Jürgenson 1 year ago in Devices / Http updated 1 week ago 5

It's year 2023, the AI bots will take over the "world" so here is a template for it for bOS too...Kodu-Http (OpenAI) (1.2).bos

Right now it works just as a outdated google search with better logic or smth. Somehow the image generator crashes the http driver. Remember everything is in beta.

To get it working you need to make a account for OpenAI and generate your API key.

1. insert it here - for both completions and image generator commands YOUR_KEY.

2. You can ask the AI your question and it should respond. Made a TTS for it's  answers too so its extra creepy.

Image 4434

FYI it's not as good as the web page bot - for longer answers sometimes it doesn't give out the full info and I've seen that some of codes may go missing. In theory you can make it give you suggestions automatically too. If it gives you a BadRequest error see if the input is all in one line. It does not like it when some text is on a new line.

Happy new year!


Z-Wave stick Aeotec "Error connecting to device. No Ack" message

Francois Lesueur 3 years ago in Devices / Z-Wave updated by Simen Hagen 5 months ago 2


I'm using ComfortClick servers, but because I had a problem with one of the servers, I had to go back to a windows machine for a few days. 

Since I was using a Z-Wave Aeotec stick on the ComfortClick server, I thought it would be straightforward to use it on the PC : just plug and play.... well, not at all. I got the following message each time the server attempted to send a message to the stick "Error connecting to device. No Ack". 

It was driving me mad... I tried all kind of settings, and eventually found the solution - so just posting the question and the answer in case you face it so that you don't get crazy. 

When connecting the Z-Wave stick, Windows (7) is installing automatically the standard USB to COM drivers. But they are no good for the Aeotec stick. Some special Aeotec drivers must be installed in place of the standard ones. They can be found on 


This fixed the issue :-)
