About a year ago I had to remove the wall switch and hard-wired the four ceiling Hue lights. I added 4 more lights in other places in the house and all was well until I found multiple (redundant) occurrences of some of the lights in the Google app. That’s when I learned I had to unlink the Philips Hue app in order to correct that. Then I re-linked the Hue app. It searched and it needs me to turn the lamps on. That’s hard to do with no switch for the original ceiling lights.
Very frustrating to me. Any ideas?
