Create a scene based on the current state of selected lights?


(Neil Popson) #1

Is there a SmartApp (or any other way) to create a scene based on the current state of the lights (on/off, dim level, and color temp or color)?

I am transitioning from a Homekit setup and trying to quickly bring in all of my scenes for about 40 devices. It is extremely painful needing to manually set the dim level and color/temp for every single light (and have it match exactly what it was in Homekit). The nice thing about Homekit was/is when you create a scene it will default the values to whatever the current state of the devices is.

It would be nice if I could just activate my Homekit scene and then create a SmartThings scene based on the state of the selected devices.

This was a request when they first created SmartThings’ scenes functionality, but it hasn’t happened yet. They official ways for your request to be heard are to email support and/or leave an app review.

Btw, what devices are you using that are both HomeKit and SmartThings compatible?

Search for “Scene Machine”… Not sure it still exists…
