    npm install -g thing-it-node

    Initialization and Start of [thing-it-node]

    The [thing-it-device-philips-hue] Plugin is installed with [thing-it-node], hence there is no need to install it separately.

    The Plugin supports Autodiscovery, hence you only have to create a directory in which you intend to run the configuration, e.g.

    mkdir ~/hue-test
    cd ~/hue-test

    and invoke

    tin init

    and then start [thing-it-node] via

    tin run

    Install the thing-it Mobile App from the Apple Appstore or Google Play and set it up to connect to [thing-it-node] locally as described here or just connect your browser under http://localhost:3001.

    Philips Hue Setup

    Connect your Philips Hue Bridge to the same network as the [thing-it-node] Node Box you have configured above and install all lighting.

    Then push the Link Button on the Philips Hue Bridge.

    On the [thing-it] Mobile App or in the browser, confirm the registration of the Philips Hue Bridge.

    [thing-it-node] will automatically add all Light Bulbs and Living Color Lamps to your [thing-it-node] Configuration and you will be able control these from the [thing-it] Mobile App immediately.
