The Philips Hue Action Component is to send commands to a Philips Hue light device. You need to specify the color and opacity and set the IP address, user ID, and light ID.

The IP address can be found by going to https://discovery.meethue.com/.

With this information, the debugger API simulator can be found at http://<your_ip>/debug/clip.html

Before you send the POST command to the API using JSON, you need to get the user ID, which you can only get if you “pair” the device by pressing the bridge button once. {"devicetype": "my_hue_app#gravio"}

For detailed instructions on how to use the debugger, see here: https://developers.meethue.com/documentation/getting-started
