GE Link Bulb: How to get the status updated to correctly reflect the state when manually turned ON?

I’ll be interested to see if this will work. I was trying to set up a “Pet Sitter” mode where if they turned the light on via the dumb wall switch, all the lights in our apartment would come on for a preset amount of time (like an hour) and automatically turn off. Even though I could see an event logged almost immediately when I turned the switch on, my app wouldn’t respond.

Of course the other problem I ended up having which killed the WAF is that at some point the GE Bulbs stopped responding to commands (probably after having been turned off at the switch for some time) and we had to drive home 30 min to turn them off since she was afraid of a fire given that they were in an enclosed ceiling fixture, which GE actually recommends against doing
