I was watching a video from Inovelli that mentioned possibly supporting Hue bulbs (using the Hue bridge) through Matter as a “loophole” to control the bulbs somewhat directly.
Has there been any update to the research on this?
It looks like the Hue bridge already supports Matter (beta) so I’m not sure what else is needed.
I’m also a bit unsure how this would help integration though. Right now my setup is a bit awkward involving a Z-Wave switch → Home Assistant → Hue Bridge → Hue bulbs.
I would purchase an Inovelli red-switch in a heartbeat, but unless I’m willing to switch to a different Zigbee hub I don’t think it will be an improvement. I think the only improvement would be something like: Inovelli switch (w/matter bridge?) → Hue Bridge → Hue bulbs?
(I’ve also posted this as a comment on the youtube video mentioned above…)
