it's good I can order the lights. By cons I have no return status. If I turn on the light in the Hue application, the state does not change in the C4 application.

Two options:

1. Turn on polling in the bridge driver. Downside: have to wait at least 30s for updates and it can bog down your hue bridge with requests especially if you have a lot of hue lights. 

2. What I did was turn off polling and tie hue updates to motion sensor events with a macro. That way the hue updates quite well as long as someone is in the house triggering motion sensors.

Yes, there is an issue how the Hue Bridge was designed, it does not allow external triggers, thus only pooling is a way to get the data out of the Hue System ... which takes quite some time since the Bridges are not having big CPUs.
