Seriously, how is there not a built-in option to create groups of lights? I know there are some 3rd party smart apps that can do this and various other workarounds, but there shouldn’t need to be. It should be a standard feature by now.
All these workarounds create problems and they end up out of sync with each other. For example, I have 5 BR30 RGB Lightify bulbs in my office, the Lightify wall switch to control them, an Echo Dot, and a wall mounted tablet running ActionTiles. There is no way for me to control these bulbs, all at once, from each device, without getting them out of sync.
I can create a group in the Alexa app and it works great, but then it’s out of sync with the wall switch and action tiles, which I have to tie to a virtual switch. If I want it to stay in sync I have to tell Alexa to turn on the virtual switch, but then I have to create a different group name to change the brightness or color.
It’s the same thing with ActionTiles. I can’t control all the bulbs from one button.
Yes, this is a first world problem, but it’s an easily solved one if Samsung would add in this very basic feature.
