I’m new in the home automation scene and figured that it would be good to start with a smart bulb so I bought a multicoloured one from my local Ikea. When I tried to use the SmartApp Gentle Wakeup the light turns to a purple colour.
My question is: is it supposed to do that and is it possible to make it a warm yellow or something more similar to a real sunrise.
Sorry for a dumb question if it is supposed to do that
Not a dumb question. I ran into the same problem. For some reason when color is enabled on that one when it goes to dim up it gets a “blue hue” and when it dims down it gets a “red hue” both of which are a list of hard coded values by level of brightness. I never did find out why it was written that way.
I’ve been running this fork of that smartapp at my home:
It adds support of changing the hue of color temp bulbs along with the brightness going from 2200K at the dimmest to 6500K at the brightest.
My changes are super hacky, so no promises that it’ll work for you, but if you already know how to publish a custom smartapp, might be worth a try.
I really should try to make those changes less hacky and see if I can get the changes upstreamed. I just haven’t had the time.
Thanks for the fast answer. I tried to Google how to install a smartapp but didn’t find any simple guide, only developer integration, can you recommend any forum post or video of some sort that shows how to do it?
