Factory resetting a Hue bulb can be accomplished in 5 ways. After resetting the bulb will automatically connect.

See Touchlink

Hue bridge

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. Orphaned bulbs (configured to connect to a non-existing Zigbee network) can be adopted by a Hue bridge by entering the 6 character serial number in the Philips Hue app.

Hue dimmer switch

With one of the two Hue Dimmer switches it is possible to put the bulbs into a factory reset.

  1. Power-supply the bulb
  2. Bring the dimmer switch next to the bulb, as close as possible
  3. Hold the I/On and 0/Off button pressed simultaneously for 10 to 12 seconds until…
  4. The bulb flashes a couple of times. Don't release the buttons until the last flash + a safety second
  5. Switch the bulb off and on again: it can now be paired again.

Bluetooth (if supported by device)

Install the Philips Hue Bluetooth app for Androidopen in new window or iOSopen in new window. You can use the app to trigger a factory reset on a paired light. (Note: The light will only be in bluetooth pairing mode for a couple of minutes after power-on)

TRADFRI remote control

This may also be possible with the Tradfri Remote Controlopen in new window by pressing and holding the reset button on the bottom of the remote (next to the battery). This may not always work, even if the Hue bulb starts flashingopen in new window.

Power-on behavior

This device allows you to set the power-on behavior. Note that this requires at least November/December '18 firmware update of the device. Send a MQTT command to zigbee2mqtt/FRIENDLY_NAME/setopen in new window with the following payload.

    "hue_power_on_behavior": "on",          // default, on, off, recover
    "hue_power_on_brightness": 125,         // same values as brightness
    "hue_power_on_color_temperature": 280,  // same values as color_temp
    "hue_power_on_color": "#0000FF"         // color in hex notation, e.g. #0000FF = blue
Attribute ValueDescription
defaultreset to factory default value
onbulb on after power loss with configured brightness, color-temperature and color
offbulb off after power loss
recoverlast running state after power loss


  • hue_power_on_behavior value always has to be provided
  • hue_power_on_brightness, hue_power_on_color_temperature and hue_power_on_color can only be provided when hue_power_on_behavior = on
  • hue_power_on_color_temperature and hue_power_on_color cannot be provided together, only one can be set
  • When setting hue_power_on_behavior = on, any not provided values will be reset to their factory defaults

Note: if hue_power_on_behavior is set to off, then the only way to turn the bulb on will be through a paired smart device (see pairing above). You will NOT be able to turn the bulb on by sequentially switching power on and off.

OTA updates

This device supports OTA updates, for more information see OTA updates.



The current state of this switch is in the published state under the state property (value is ON or OFF). To control this switch publish a message to topic zigbee2mqtt/FRIENDLY_NAME/set with payload {"state": "ON"}, {"state": "OFF"} or {"state": "TOGGLE"}. To read the current state of this switch publish a message to topic zigbee2mqtt/FRIENDLY_NAME/get with payload {"state": ""}.

Linkquality (numeric)

Link quality (signal strength). Value can be found in the published state on the linkquality property. It's not possible to read (/get) or write (/set) this value. The minimal value is 0 and the maximum value is 255. The unit of this value is lqi.
