Setting up lights in the app
Go to Setup - Devices - scroll to the bottom. All your Philips hue devices should be listed there. Set a name, place them in a room and set the correct functionality.
Deleting devices in the app:
The Philips hue adapter will show all "devices" in the Futurehome app. Some of these devices are Philips Hue Scenes and similar. These devices should be left without a name and not be assigned to a room in the app. Still if you want to force delete them from the application to completely hide them from setup then we need to send a false exclusion report in order to remove them from the app.
Also when Philips hue adapter is removed the devices will not automatically be removed so they need to be manually excluded from the system.
- Go to the device during setup
- Choose Advanced
- Find the name of the "adapter" and the name "address" of the device
- Open thingsplex in a web browser
- Go to register
- Select Admin
- Enter the adapter name and address of the device you want to remove and press send.
Repeat the process where each device will be removed one by one from the App.
