by means of thing-it-node and


Installation of NodeJS and [thing-it-node]

First, install nodejs on your computer (e.g. your PC or your Raspberry Pi).

Then install [thing-it-node] via

npm install -g thing-it-node

Initialization and Start of [thing-it-node]

The [thing-it-device-osram-lightify] Plugin is installed with [thing-it-node], hence there is no need to install it separately.

The Plugin supports Autodiscovery, hence you only have to create a directory in which you intend to run the configuration, e.g.

mkdir ~/lightify-test
cd ~/lightify-test

and invoke

tin init

and then start [thing-it-node] via

tin run

Install the thing-it Mobile App from the Apple Appstore or Google Play and set it up to connect to [thing-it-node] locally as described here or just connect your browser under http://localhost:3001.

OSRAM Lightify Setup

Set up your OSRAM Lightify Gateway as described in the OSRAM Lightify documentation and/or instructions in the Mobile App to the same network as the [thing-it-node] Node Box you have configured above and install all lighting and other devices also following the OSRAM Lightify documentation and/or instructions in the Mobile App.

On the [thing-it] Mobile App or in the browser, confirm the registration of the OSRAM Lightify Gateway.

As the Plugin supportsauto-discovery, [thing-it-node] will automatically add all light bulbs and other OSRAM Lightify devices to your [thing-it-node] Configuration and you will be able control these from the [thing-it] Mobile App immediately.
