Philips Hue Bridge configuration overview
You find the Configuration overview in the sidebar, under the section named with bridge's name.
The configuration overview display a number of settings and properties of your Hue Bridge.
You can copy any value to your clipboard by right-clicking on the corresponding row, and select Copy.
At first glance it may be a bit overwhelming, so let's explain them one by one.
Name of your bridge. Can be changed in the official Hue app.
Hardware Model ID
Uniquely identifies the hardware model of the bridge. Can either be BSB001 (first generation, round bridge) or BSB002 (second generation, square bridge).
Hue API Version
Version of the Hue API. An API (application programming interface) is the interface how apps like Hue Log can communicate with the Hue Bridge.
Your unique bridge ID (it is based on the MAC-address of the bridge).
Bridge Software Version
Software version of the bridge. When you get a bridge firmware update you will see this number change. The bridge is automatically updated if it is connected to the internet.
Current ZigBee channel used by the bridge. Can be 11, 15, 20, 25 (or 0 if bridge is factory new and channel has not been set).
IP-address of your bridge.
Gateway IP-address of the bridge. The gateway is the networking device your Hue Bridge is connected to, this is typically your internet router.
When DHCP is on (which is default), your Hue Bridge is automatically assigned an IP-address by your router. If DHCP is off then a static IP-address must be explicitly set.
The netmask is set to allow the Hue Bridge to determine, based on IP-address, what other devices are on the same local network (so it can send traffic directly to them).
MAC-address of your bridge.
Time zone of the bridge (or "none" when not configured).
Bridge time in UTC
Current time stored on the bridge in UTC (Coordinated Universal Time).
Bridge local time
Local time of the bridge according to configured time zone.
Indicates if bridge settings are factory new.
Replaces Bridge ID
If a bridge backup file has been restored on this bridge from a bridge with a different bridge id, it will displayed here. Typically because you replace a bridge with a new one, and restored settings using a backup.
Version of the datastore on the bridge.
Name of the starterkit created in the factory, or "none" if your bridge was not part of a starterkit.
Indicates whether the link button has been pressed within the last 30 seconds.
The API key (sometimes confusedly referred to as "username" in Philips technical documentation) used by Hue Log to communicate with the bridge.
