Has anyone else ran into issues trying to control color changing devices with the new app? At first I thought it was my older devices transitioning to the new App but I just added some new bulbs with the new app and still don’t get great control options.
All I can do is pick a spot in a color wheel. And it often doesn’t even come close to what I want. For example - selecting in a medium blue area often gets me a bright green. And I seem to have no way to access actual color temperature controls when my lamp does both RGB and CCT. And I bought these lamps so I can shift my CCT during the day for normal uses and do some fun colors at night for movie watching, etc. Right now I am literally power cycling my bulbs when I sit down in the evening to relax to get them back to 3000k white. I have some Sylvania lamps now and some strips on various different controllers but all look the same in the app. The only lamps that are working well are the CCT only ones. And when doing color changes I seem to have to back out of the device each time I want to select a color? I lost a lot of my old automations and functionality when moving to the new App but honestly this color control has been the most frustrating as it impacts the quality of my environment.
I wasn’t sure if any custom device handlers were an option… and I am worried as I have been reading about the IDE going away? I haven’t spend as much time on here lately and been keeping up with all the news so maybe I am missing a good solution?
Thanks for any suggestions or advice. I hate to start shopping around for a new hub but I am curious if that will end up being the solution for anyone more advanced than basic users.
