Pulled from github and installed.  Working nicely!  Kudo's on the work.
Great, on what kind of setup ?

@ChrisTheC

I have a version for UI5 on github, it sorts of work with the following problems
- RGB lights managed as std dimmer lights, when I use D_DimmableRGBLight1.xml for the device file it crashes so I use the std dimmer on UI5
- the user interface of the settings tab is not nice at all, it needs some rework for UI5 but if you use ALTUI, even on your UI5 box, then the user interface will be proper ( essentially UI5 behaves as UI7 )

amg0,
Good Morning (from UTC -4:00)
Thanks for the promising news. Could, should, . . . and (in time) will work.
Now to order the hardware . . .  :)
Chris

@amg0

Just a heads-up... Your "RefreshHueData" routine is having trouble processing sensor data. My Hue Brideg has several "phantom" temperature and light level sensors. The device data for these sensors contains null data, and this causes the refresh process to crash. (Note: I am testing under openLuup, but it should be the same issue for a real Vera...)

can you please try 0.7
if problem persists, please enable DEBUG mode, reload luup and give me the log file

One question: did you use URL hashcode change to detect hue motion sensor change or periodic check the change every xxx of seconds?

Polling. the refresh period variable allows to control the frequency. Do you have details or doc page explaining the other method? I did not see it in the Philips hue api spec
