Hi,

I've just installed the public beta for iOS10, but when I go to the Home app it doesn't pick up my Philips Hue bulbs or bridge (I own the first generation bridge that is not compatible with Siri.) has anybody else experienced this or can provide further advice? Do I need to have the Philips Hue app installed?

Davy.

I don't have any experience with the Home app or Philips Hue but I have recently purchased a Gen 2 starter kit (waiting for it to arrive). I would guess the Home app is for HomeKit enabled devices so you may need the Gen 2 hub which is HomeKit enabled.

I have a gen2 and it works reasonable well. Not perfect, but it's still in a beta.
