How to Connect Philips Hue Bridge to eWeLink?
Philips Hue (Signify) has introduced Matter support for its Hue Bridges, enabling seamless integration between Hue Lights and eWeLink locally. This guide will walk you through the process of pairing your Hue lights with the eWeLink ecosystem via Matter.
⚠️ Prerequisites: Before you begin, ensure that you have the following:
Philips Hue Bridge (latest firmware)
Philips Hue App (latest)
eWeLink app (V5.4 or above)
NSPanel Pro (firmware V3 or above)

Getting Started

If you are new to Philips Hue, please refer to the official guide for the initial setup. The Hue app would also guide you on this.
After a successful setup, your Hue Bridge should have three steady lights on. You will then be prompted to upgrade your Hue to the latest firmware, which enables Matter-related features for your Hue system. For more information on the firmware upgrade, please consult this official guide.
⚠️ Important: Ensure that your Hue Bridge has been upgraded and that your phone, Hue Bridge, and NSPanel Pro are all connected to the same local network.

10. The eWeLink app will prompt you to rename the bridge and its sub-devices and assign them to a room. If you skip this step, you can always rearrange them later.

Congratulations! Your Hue devices are now ready to be controlled within the eWeLink platform.
