A few weeks ago I mentioned that our house purchased a Hue starter kit. I finally had some time to hack on it and have my first home automation project: the Hue Sunset. It changes an accent light color in our living room on the hour for each hour past 6pm. Hopefully we will grow accustomed to the light changing and be able to know the rough time instinctively.
I'd like to do the complementary Hue Sunrise as well, to tell me what time it is in the morning without needing to get out of bed, but the Hue bulb's wireless doesn't reach my room. Because they form a mesh network this just means I need to buy more bulbs.
