The notes below add details for the ITP hubs’ setup only.
Connecting To the Network
All the Hue hubs ITP owns should be on the network, but if not, check with Marlon Evans. Their addresses are:
172.22.151.181, 172.22.151.183, and 172.22.151.184 (on columns 3, 6 and 9, and 220.127.116.11 (column 12). The first three are controllable using the NYU Virtual Private Network (VPN), and the fourth is controllable from anywhere.
You can see the one on column 12 here:
See the hue-control repository for detailed instructions on controlling the hubs.
When you establish a username on any of the ITP hubs, use your netID as your devicetype. That makes it easy to maintain the user lists every year.
When you’re done controlling any of the hubs, be polite to others and stop controlling them, others can get to them. If you’re using an Arduino, for example, upload a blank sketch so you’re sure it’s no longer running by mistake.
A good place to start is by downloading this p5.js sketch then opening the index.html file from your local drive. Enter the hub’s IP address and your username, and you should have a nice GUI for controlling the lights.
