Chapter 9. My Devices

9.1. Adding New Devices to your One Hub

Your One Hub will discover most of your supported devices automatically, and will notify you when a new device is discovered.

However, some devices can’t be discovered automatically, and you will either need to tell your One Hub to look for them, or you’ll need to go through some simple manual steps to add & configure the device.

9.1.1. Search for New Devices

You will need to tell your One Hub to search for the following devices, as they can’t be discovered automatically:

  • LIFX bulbs.

  • Philips Hue bulbs that have been added since your Hue bridge was originally discovered by your One Hub.

  • Belkin WeMo bulbs that have been added since your Belkin WeMo lights bridge was originally discovered by your One Hub.

See Appendix A, Supported Devices for full details of how these device are discovered.

To search for new devices, tap Settings in the menu at the top of the screen. Find the My Devices section and tap Search for new devices.

9.1.2. Add a New Device

Some devices must be explicitly added to your One Hub, usually because they require you to enter some configuration information before your One Hub is able to access the device.

You will need to explicitly add the following devices to be able to use them with your One Hub:

  • Tado thermostat
  • Nest® devices

See Appendix A, Supported Devices for full details of how these device are added to your One Hub.

To add a new device, tap Settings in the menu at the top of the screen. Find the My Devices section and tap Add a new device. Find the device in the list and tap the appropriate button to begin adding your device.

9.2. Forgetting all of your Devices

In certain circumstances, you may want to have your One Hub forget all the devices it has discovered. For example, if you move your One Hub in a new location and intend to use it to control a new set of devices at that location.

To forget all of your devices, tap Settings in the menu at the top of the screen. Find the My Devices section and tap Forget all of my devices.

Note

The Forget all of my devices feature should be used with caution. Your One Hub will need to rediscover any devices that you still want to use.
