2020-08-28: Controlling Hue Lights via REST API

Okay, I love it when companies use open APIs to use. Especially when it’s so darn straightfoward and easy to pick up.

I was bored last night since I was unable to pick anything up after finishing Outer Wilds (a long story for another time) and I found out that the Hue Bridge is easily accessible with some very simple API calls. I love that it’s all done in a single call (after a registered token) as it should, and I’m going to use this to my advantage – whether it’s through NFC cards or scheduled API calls or tying it to some personal integrations, like MacOS automations.

I’ll dive into the Hue API during the long weekend. This is fun.
