Philips HUE in PRTG




I want to see my Philips HUE in PRTG. I saw it on the Internet and there was also a button to power them on and off. Any Ideas how I could do this?

Greetings Sekashi

This is going to be accomplished with the Philips HUE API. You'll need to sign up for an account with them, here.

Once you have an account with them, you should be able to find the API calls to change the colors of your HUE bulbs. With this, you just create a new notification template that makes this API call. You can then link this with a trigger to any sensors or devices you like. You can also add this to maps to where you can force the API call, and make your lights change colors.

Let me know if you have any other questions.
