Code

Github custom component

This code provides a Home-assistant custom component for Hue sensors. Place the custom_components folder in your hass config director. Setup assumes you have already configured the Hue component and have the file phue.conf in your hass config dir. Hue remote can be used for a click and long press (hold button for 2 sec and see LED blink twice).
