Amazon Dash button controlling Hue lights
« on: July 13, 2017, 10:36:15 PM »

I needed a challenge, so when Amazon was selling their Dash buttons on Prime Day for $0.99 I picked one up to play around with it.  I got it to toggle the Hue lights in my bedroom on and off.  [video]

This requires having a device to run a Python listening script on (Raspberry Pi, PC, etc.) than can send a command to your IFTTT account which will run the Hue service action of your choice.  I set up my Synology NAS, which is always running anyway, to run the script.  This is the process I followed.

Great job! I particularly like your video.
