Alexa-Hue Bridge Version 3.0.18

Version 3.0.18 of the Alexa-Hue Bridge has been released and is now available on Github.
This version is now the official V3 release - 20th November 2017 - it should appear via the plugin update check. :)

This release (Version 3.0.18) has the following changes:
  • New Feature - Disable Alexa (by Variable) - see WIKI.
  • Bug Fixes - Bug fixes around host address, port management and discovery. Code tidy-up.
  • Documentation - Updated documentation and moved to Wiki. Change information now in Wiki.
This version should hopefully be more reliable. :wink:

A couple of points to note:
  1. Port Address Change - if the port address is changed for an Alexa-hue Bridge, you must do another discovery as otherwise Alexa will continue to send feedback to the port she previously made a note off. If a discovery isn't done, then the plugin will never receive the Alexa request and Alexa will say "the device is not responding".
  2. Forget Devices - this cannot now be done from the iOS App. So the only way to do this is by logging on to your Alexa account at https://alexa.amazon.com or https://alexa.amazon.co.uk etc.
    From the left hand window, navigate to Smart Home and then Devices. Scroll to the bottom of the devices window and do a Forget All.
    You must do a Forget Devices if you migrate from Version 2 to Version 3 and then do a re-discovery - see the migration topic in the Wiki.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank my BETA testers who provided invaluable feedback for this new version - thanks all for your efforts. :)
