So I made the mistake of syncing the new version of Aura with my Philips Hue bridge. Now every time I boot my system it changes ALL of my bulbs to red. This is nuts!! I uninstalled / reinstalled Aura and it keeps coming back. Why is there no way to completely REMOVE and unsync Hue in the Aura app??? What can I do here?
Removing the ASUS Aura from Philips Hue.
I had this issue and it drove me mad, fortunately I found a way without having to reset my bridge like some. I've made this account to hopefully spare a few unfortunate souls.
First go to your Program Files on your local disk - C:\Program Files (x86)\
Look for the folder LightingService
Inside this there should be a file called LastProfile.xml
Make a backup of this file just incase, I called it LastProfile-Backup.xml
Open the first file in a text editor, you might need admin rights to do this. I did this a week or so ago and I might have had to change access rights on the folder so if anyone gets stuck I'll add some more instructions.
Once you have the file open go to the bottom and look for a line that says:
your ip address here
We want to remove that IP address to your bridge there so it looks like this...
Save the file and you're done. Might need a restart but my hue lights haven't been affected since and all the other Aura sync settings remained the same.
Praise the lord, My house wont annoyingly light up every time I turn on my PC.
