Hello. I am using the latest android version of Hue, version 2.7.0 and it will not allow me to rename lights..Anyone else experiencing this?
I agree with mBartelt, go to the settings menu, go to lights setup, then tap the i on the bulb you want to name. It will bring up a screen with the name at the top, tap on the name and you can edit – don’t forget to save or hit done/go etc. On the keyboard or it will not save the new name.
Holy cow… I’m having the same problem now.. many moths after this was first brought up. Alexa will control the light if I say “Alexa, turn on First Light.” That’s pretty dumb.
I think without a hub, I can’t actually rename the device. Can anyone actually verify that?
After factory-resetting the hub and reinstalling all the hardware, I’m finding that every light I add starts with a numbering system (1. ****, 2. ****). I tried it again, and the first light came up 1. **** again. When I deleted it and tried to connect again, it came up as 2. ***. When I first installed this as a package, the four lights were already connected to the app, but were not listed as 1. ***, 2. ***. Obviously, the original factory install doesn’t necessitate this numbering convention, Would be nice to get rid ot it, if possible.
