Phillips hue not connecting

Hello !

 

I wanted to see if anyone has had any success with connecting their Phillips Hue Bridge? I have been trying to connect it and it only connects to the ethernet and not the wifi. Has anyone been successful or has any suggestions , I have tried everything !

Please help

Hi Juanr809, are you trying to connect the Hue bridge with your home security system?

There's no WiFi interface for the Philips HUE bridge - you need to use Ethernet.

No. I am trying to connect it directly into the modem.

Yes that is correct. I am connecting it to the ethernet port in the modem , but I have been unsuccessful at connecting it in the app, and the Hue bridge is not catching the wifi.

In this case the information that (darkangelic) shared is correct. You will only be able to connect the lights via Ethernet cable going to the modem. You will be able to control the lights from the Hue app.

You must pair the system with the bridge by pressing the big button in blue on the bridge itself. This will allow the bridge to pair with your lights.
