Pulled from github and installed.  Working nicely!  Kudo's on the work.

@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

I was just thinking another way to reduce the network to hue hub. I look at the response header and it does not have a last modified date so it seems nothing we can do.

Amg0: Something a little odd I discovered trying to install on Openluup. Once the plugin is installed, the iphone locator plugin stops working: it is no longer able to ping the iphone. Once I delete the althue plugin, the iphone locator works again...
