Pairing #

Factory resetting a Hue bulb can be accomplished in 4 ways. After resetting the bulb will automatically connect.

When the bulb is still connected to the Hue bridge, you can simply factory reset the bulb by removing it from the bridge via the Hue app.

This may also be possible with the Tradfri Remote Control by pressing and holding the reset button on the bottom of the remote (next to the battery). This may not always work.

    "hue_power_on_color_temperature": 280,  //default, same values as color_temp, default = 366
