Control a Philips Hue lightbulb with the Harry Potter Kano Coding Kit


Hi everyone.

Lots of people have been asking about the ability to use the coding wand outside the Kano App and here it is! This is a fan-made project made by Jesse Lieberg (@GammaGames on Twitter) that lets you get data from the wand and use it to control a Philips smart lightbulb.

It would be awesome if we could get a IFTTT service put together. Then we could do a ton of things with the wand.


We haven’t done it at the office yet, but if anyone wants to give it a go, Webhooks seems the way to go on IFTTT


Thanks for sharing! :slight_smile:


Thank you for joining the forum @GammaGames, would love to read any further progress you’ve been making on the wand integrations!



I haven’t done anything more since then, it’s been pretty busy with the holidays. Maybe in the new year!
