A lightweight Meteor.js Phillips Hue lights control panel.
Alpha version: Alpha software can be unstable and could cause crashes.
If you have NodeJS and Meteor already installed, setup is as simple as running
meteor from the app directory.
- Install Node: http://nodejs.org
- Install Meteor:
curl https://install.meteor.com | /bin/sh
- Open the control panel in your browser:
Requirement – Hue Bridge
After lauch, the application will perform an initial test to connect to the Hue’s bridge. Touch the middle button on the bridge and within 30 seconds click on the test button on your browser. After these steps the App will have permission to use your Hue bridge.
Options for Deploying
Now that you’ve tested the app, you may want to set it up to run all the time. There are a couple of options for this.
First thing’s first. The app needs to live on the same LAN as the lights it will be controlling.
Next, you could do a proper production deployment.
Or (much easier) since it will only ever be accessed over the local network, just run it in the background, using the dev server:
Special thanks to Kelli Shaver for the initial implementation.
