NEW GUIDE: Feather-based Hue lighting controller
The Philips HUE lighting system is very cool. Wifi control of your lighting, full color lighting, etc. You simply replace your regular bulbs with HUE bulbs and gain the an immediate improvement by having switched to LED lighting. Open up the HUE app on your smartphone and you can have very precise control of on/off, brightness, and color (with color bulbs) of individual bulbs.
That’s great, but is having to dig out your phone is as bad as having to walk to the wall switch, other than not have to get out of bed to turn lights on/off. And who carries their phone when going for a midnight snack? Using an voice assistant like Amazon Echo (which I use) helps, but you still have to proactively do something and you have to be withing earshot of the device. Wouldn’t it be nice if the lighting was controlled for you, turning on and off automatically. That’s what we’ll do in the project.
