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.

Cree Connected bulb? (Hue bridge)
« on: August 15, 2015, 11:24:17 am »
I bought a Cree Connected bulb and added it to my Hue app. I can easily control the bulb with the Hue app but the Echo does not see it.

Even when it's turned on the Echo only finds my Hue bulbs.

I don't have one yet... but thru my research I saw this is a common issue and most are able to set it up if you bring the bulb really close to the hub. And then it works fine after its set up no matter where you move it to.

I have the same issue. I have one CREE Connected bulb that works with my Hue Bridge. I can control it via the Hue App. However when Echo discovers the devices connected to the Hue Bridge it does not find the CREE Connected bulb.

I'm curious to know if the CREE Connected bulb works on a SmartThings Hub?

I queried the Hue Bridge for the lights that are connected and this is the output for the CREE Connected bulb. It might be that Echo only knows about certain modelid/manufacturername devices and how to control them.

   "17": {
      "state": {
         "on": false,
         "bri": 1,
         "alert": "lselect",
         "reachable": true
      },
      "type": "Dimmable light",
      "name": "Office",
      "modelid": "",
      "manufacturername": "CREE                           ",
      "uniqueid": "e2:0d:b9:ff:fe:00:40:30-0a",
      "swversion": "420",
      "pointsymbol": {
         "1": "none",
         "2": "none",
         "3": "none",
         "4": "none",
         "5": "none",
         "6": "none",
         "7": "none",
         "8": "none"
      }

This is what a Hue Bulb looks like...

   "16": {
      "state": {
         "on": false,
         "bri": 254,
         "hue": 14920,
         "sat": 144,
         "effect": "none",
         "xy": [

            0.4105
         ],
         "ct": 369,
         "alert": "lselect",
         "colormode": "xy",
         "reachable": true
      },
      "type": "Extended color light",
      "name": "Kitchen 1",

      }
   },
