Sonos One can control hue lights. I already tested it out and can confirm this. It can't seem to enable lighting Scenes, though.
Mike,Just to add my understanding about Philips hue bulbs and the Alexa integration.A colour like 'Red', 'Green' or 'Blue' etc is not a scene, but more of a 'state' for a room or individual bulb. Their Brightness is also a 'state' These can normally be set from either an 'on or off' starting position.So if the lights are either on or off, the following should work:“Alexa, Set Bob's Light to Red” ... individual bulb “Alexa, Set the Lounge Lights to Red”... entire room“Alexa, Set Bob's Light to 50%” ... individual bulb “Alexa, Set the Lounge Lights to 50%”... entire roomThese states are 'set' rather than 'turned on'.Scenes however like “Tropical Twighlight” only apply to rooms and not the individual bulbs and you can’t ever 'set' a scene for a bulb, nor 'set' a scene for a room in either an on/off state... but you can “turn on” a scene for a room from both an on or off state.So if the lounge lights are on/off to begin with you cannot say this:“Alexa, set the lounge to Savanna Sunset” (scene)Nor can you say this ever for an individual bulb ...“Alexa, set Bob's Light to Savanna Sunset”But you can always say this for a room from an on or off starting position:“Alexa, turn on Savanna Sunset in the Lounge”So my understanding is that the 'state' (colour and brightness) of the bulbs or rooms are 'set' in place ...but room scenes are only ever 'turned on' ...and (importantly) a colour is not a scene.A bit confusing, but that’s my understanding at this moment in time, but I am relatively new to this Smart Home stuff.
