Hi everyone. This is my first post. I am a proud owner of SmartThings hub!!! Super excited.
Currently I have 1x SmartThings hub v2
1x Echo dot
1x Hue bridge v2
2x Hue ambiance light bulbs
1x Hue dimmer switch
2x Lightify Smart connected rgbw bulbs
One of the Hue bulbs is in my office which is controlled by the Philips dimmer switch. The other one is above my dinning table which is also controlled by the same switch( there is a paid $5 app that allows you to tweak the dimmer switch, pretty cool) it is not the most convenient setup, but they are pretty close to each other. I am on a tight budget and getting things one by one. The two color Lightify bulbs will be in the bedroom and would like to set them up in a group that controls the color. Maybe have a virtual switch that turns those red for some romance.
So question is how I do that and also would it be possible that the Philips dimmer switch can control the Lightify bulbs through SmartThings since the bridge does not recognize them.( I’ve read about the whole EU/US firmware versions and they are coming with an update that should allow pairing with the bridge)
Also I have bee playing with the simulated switch and it works, but something is not right… I have them to turn red, but they go through different states and eventually turn red and sometimes after they are red they go to purple and stay like that. I tried deleting the virtual switches and set up again, but same thing, very glitchy. Maybe I should reset the bulbs and pair again ?
