Hello, with Arduino ESPAlexa-library(also fauxmoESP-lib) you can build devices where each ESP-Device(ESP8266, ESP32) emulates a Hue-bridge(partly!) with a combination of hue lights(all together on one ESP-Device), for example my “couch-device” is an ESP32(Wemos Lolin 32) bridge with 6 “lights” (onoff, RGB, dimmable, onoff, onoff, onoff).
The Alexa Echos can find (with “Alexa, search for new devices” command) all the bridges with their lights (30 lights/switches in 11 ESP-devices(=hue-bridges) in my house) and show them in the alexa app without an addional skill, hardware or cloud.
I try to connect one device with Hue Essentials App(Android), the app displays 4 bridges of 11(=espalexa-devices) and when i will connect one,the app runs into an error, “bridge is not reachable” (“Fehler Die Bridge ist nicht erreichbar. Bitte überprüfen sie die Internetverbindung”. Manual connection as a diyHue brigde gives the same error.
Is there a documentation (or a special Hue Essentials App with detailed error reasons or a log) where I can find out, what the app is missing from an espalexa-bridge (emulates parts of the SSDP protocol and the Philips hue API ) to connect such a devices/bridges?
