Recently I've seen a few people asking how to get Phillips Hue talking over DMX. The actual process is fairly simple due to a great little package by a user called sinedied.
Below are going to be various installs for various operating systems.
Head over to https://nodejs.org/en/ and download the recommended for most users option. Install just like any other program.
Once installed you are going to want to open command prompt and type.
npm install -g dmx-hue
this will take a few seconds to install.
you will then want to type
it will prompt you to link your hue device, just click the top of your hue and retype the command dmx-hue setup.
You will then want to apply your settings by following the instructions within the command prompt. Note - Artnet Universe 1 will actually be Universe 2 as Artnet starts with a universe of 0.
Press enter to save your settings, once you see the configuration saved message close Command Prompt and then Open up a new command prompt window.
All you now need to do is start the program by typing
You may get a network security prompt depending on your settings. Allow the Node.js through the network.
That's it. You can now control your Hue lights via Artnet on your lighting network.
As for fixture profiles, when testing it seems to be just a basic RGB fixture but without the main intensity. This does depend however if you have set a DMX transition channel within your configuration.
Head over to https://nodejs.org/en/ and download the recommended for most users option. Install just like any other app.
Once installed you are going to want to open terminal and type.
sudo npm install -g dmx-hue
enter your password if prompted, this will take a few seconds to install.
