NAME

Device::Osram::Lightify::Hub - Communicate with an Osram Lightify Hub

DESCRIPTION

This module allows basic operation of the Osram lightify bulbs, via connections to the Osram hub.

SYNOPSIS

   use Device::Osram::Lightify;

   my $tmp = Device::Osram::Lightify::Hub->new( host => "1.2.3.4" );

   # Turn all devices on
   $tmp->all_on();

   # Turn all devices off
   $tmp->all_of();

DESCRIPTION

This module will connect to an Osram Lightify hub, allowing the control of lights via Perl.

The communication with the hub is carried out by sending/receiving binary messages to the hub on port 4000. The specific bytes set have been documented in the Osram::Lightify::API module.

This module is responsible for:

Identifying lights:

We can initiate a discovery of all the available lights, and create a suitable Osram::Lightify::Light object for each discovered light.

Sending broadcast events:

We can send a broadcast event, which applies to all known lights, to instruct them to go on or off.

METHODS

new

Create a new hub-object, it is mandatory to provide a host parameter which will give the IP (and optional port) of the Osram hub.

all_on

Broadcast an "on" event to all lights.

all_off

Broadcast an "off" event to all lights.

lights

Return a new Osram::Lightify::Light object for each of the lights that could be discovered.
