Remotely Connecting the Bridge

Note: Prior to this setup, ensure your credentials have been entered.

After selecting Philips Hue on the Apps page, you will notice a dropdown with a "Select Access Type" button. Select "Remote" from the dropdown and click the button. Doing so will open a new tab (some browsers may auto-block the new tab popup, so watch for that).

 Add Remote Bridge

In the new tab, Philips will prompt you to sign in to your customer account. If you haven't created one, you'll need to do that and then connect your bridge to your account. Once signed in, you can choose to give permission to ItemPath to access your bridge. After accepting, everything will be ready for you to add Philips Hue as a workflow action.
