In this project, we will install the milights-bridge and ha-bridge on a Raspberry Pi. This will allow us to emulate Hue lights, when actually they are Milight/EasyBulb/LimitlessLED lights.
Once everything is set up, Google Home will recognise your lights as Hue lights, allowing you to use them with the Google Home.
As an additional extra, the miights-bridge comes with extra features such as
- A visual remote control that works on any device (just browse to the web page)
- A wake up light (set up the lights in a particular zone to gradually turn on at a specific time, to wake you up)
- A disco mode (-disclaimer: does not yet work in this version, but it will in a few weeks) that changes your light's colours depending on the rhythm of the songs
- A mood mode, allowing you to switch between two colours gradually until turned off
- An API, that allows you to make your own widgets controlling your lights (for example, a turn on shortcut on your Android device)
