Connecting Philips Hue directly to Homey (zigbee)

    I was trying it with the hue bloom. Saw in the app description that it was an untested device, so don't know if it is a app problem or a bulb reset problem. Have only a couple of bloom's and gu10's all are untested..
    I will try it again...
    If it's not supported it will not work indeed and need to be added in the app, did read somewhere this was a problem but can't remember where 
  • Have bought a hue dimmer and now reset went well.
    Paired the gu10's and hue bloom's whithout any problems directly with homey

    Is there any more development on this app, any goal to improve experience? It's easy to use, but not a very good experience. If I have 5 bulbs and want to change brightness & temperature on each, there will be a disco with random outcome. 

    This seems to happen more often when I trigger a flow containing different light settings, than if I run the flow from the editor using "test". However, if I want to change color and brightness, on one light, it seems like it send multiple commands making it "insecure" and flickering. If I change from 20% brightness to 5%, and temp 100% to 20%, it first goes up to 70-80% brightness -> change temperature -> then down to 5% brightness...

    I really want to keep my Zigbee mesh in Homey and hide my Hue bridge in the drawer, but it won't be long before I have to go get it again 
    In short: Can we ever expect a experience even close to how smooth Philips Hue is using the Hue Bridge?
