When a person is not breathing, permanent brain damage begins after 4 minutes and death in 6 minutes after that. Can you count on help arriving before that time? Learning proper CPR techniques is easy and you can learn it in 30 minutes at CPR Test Center.

Light fixture with 2 bulbs...
« on: January 26, 2017, 07:27:21 pm »
Hi folks. Have HUE devices. New to all this. Have fixture (group "kitchen") with 2 bulbs. Can't get discovery of second bulb. Amazon names the bulbs, lamp bulb 1 for "living room" and lamp bulb 2 for "kitchen". Can't get to discover 3 (the second bulb in kitchen
fixture. Pressing the bridge button and hitting discover, no luck. Can we change the names? Haven't figured that out. Have looked at the (2 bulbs...thread). Didn't see my particular dilemma really addressed. Any feedback will be very appreciated.

Thanks

Don't you have to find it in the Hue App first so you can name it before Alexa will see it in her app?

I have a lamp with three hue bulbs and named them top, middle, bottom.  I then have them in a group called living room.    I had no problems with hue app setting them up and alexa discovering them.  There was no difference between setting up a single lamp or a multiple bulb lamp. 

Try setting the bulb you are having problems with in another light socket and then once it is set up, move it to the permanent location.  it always could be a bad bulb
