Public Beta 1.6.0 Test Request

Hello everyone. I'm releasing a public beta version of the Hue Lights plugin (version 1.6.0 beta 2) for anyone who'd like to volunteer to test it out before the final version is released. Here are the changes from the current release version 1.5.3.

Download Hue Lights 1.6.0b2.zip

  • Added support for the Hue Motion Sensor, including the motion, temperature and luminance sensors that are part of the Hue Motion Sensor. NOTE: the following caveats with the motion sensor.
    • Motion detection works, but is delayed by 2 seconds or more (depending on how many other devices you have connected to your Hue hub).
    • Motion detection activity can be somewhat "chatty", at least in my tests, possibly causing more log activity than you're used to. The Hue Motion Sensor changes to the "off" state within a few seconds of when motion stops in the room, so it's not like INSTEON or Z-Wave sensors that have a long delay before sending the "off" message after motion stops.
  • Fixed a bug that caused repeated errors and high CPU load if a Hue Lights device was duplicated in the Indigo UI then the model was changed to a different type of Hue Lights device.
  • Greatly improved the rewritten device update timing from (private beta version) 1.6.0b1 so all device types are updated on a more consistent basis.
  • Improved device update efficiency so that states that haven’t changed are repeatedly updated.
  • Rewrote device update timing to better support sensor devices.
  • Rewrote status update methods for all Hue devices to improve code readability and efficiency.
  • Fixed a bug that allowed you to pick a Hue Group as a Recall Preset destination then return an error when attempting to execute the Recall Preset action. The Recall Preset action does not currently support Hue Groups as a destination device.
  • Fixed a bug in the update check function that would incorrectly notify of updates for older versions if the installed version was a pre-release beta.
