Manages the phillips hue lightbulbs

Project Description


Python library for managing the phillips hue lightbulb

Getting Started

To get started you can get a list of your lights and work with them:

from bulby.client import HueBridgeClient
client = HueBridgeClient()
light = client.get_lights()[0]
client.set_color(light.light_id, '00ff00')

and now your light should be green! You can also reference lights by name:

from bulby.client import HueBridgeClient
client = HueBridgeClient()
client.set_color('Office 1', '00ff00')
