Automation for RGBW light bulbs?


(Daniel Eshbaugh) #1

I’m looking for a animation or app that will let me tap 1 thing to make my bulbs change from whatever color to a “base” color. So no matter what color it is I can get it back to the cool white with just one click. Anyone know how I can do this?

I use the smartApp color coordinator to sync a few bulbs I have.

I am guessing you change the bulbs randomly and want to get them all back to white.

Core (or SmartLighting) tied to a virtual switch should be able to do this.

The official features aren’t great at handling color. There are a lot of ways you can get bits and pieces of it, but in the long run your best bet is likely to be core.

I’m using core and I love it. But I can’t figure out how to make them change back to the cool white color on command without individually going into each bulb and changing them. I would like to be able to just push one automation button and they automatically go to that color the cool white color. Does anyone know what settings I should use to get this done?

You will probably need to set up a virtual switch as the master. Ask in the core Peer Assistance thread, and people there should be able to help you.
