Thank you for your response. But what I want, is a basic scenario with smart lights IMHO.
For example if you have smart lights all over the house, when is day time, the lights to be more white, in order for a human to be more active, and during night time to be more yellowish, in order to relax. I thought at least this should be a basic scenario. Imagine if you have a candelabra(with 6 bulbs) in each room and other lamps, if you sum up the bulbs, it can be quite tricky to do a different rule for every bulb, or room. Also maybe in the same room, you would not want that all the lights to be on, in the same time, so I can’t include them in a group.
If I create 2 automation rules with only one bulb, all is well:
- when the time is daylight, and when I switch the bulb to on, it will change the temperature, to white
- when the time is night time, and I will switch the bulb to on, it will change the temperature, to yellow
The problem is when I add to the same automation more than 1 bulb, because the result will be:
- Regardless of which bulb will be turned on, then all others will be turned on and change the color temperature.
The result is very stupid, all the lights in the house are turned on. I don’t see any smartness in this, sorry
I don’t want all the lights to be switched to on, just to change the temperature, only when the user switches them on.
What’s the purpose to have smartlights if you must tune the color or the temperature manually, for each of them?
Maybe it’s a logic that is implemented wrong. Why the automation setting doesn’t verify the status of the bulbs something like:
- LED 1 is turned on, change the temperature
- Check the other bulbs status, if status is set to off, do nothing.
I consider this a basic automation, not a complex one.
I tried the logic the other way around, with the bulbs status set to off, for example:
- if time of the day is after sunset and the bulbs status is set to off, then change the temperature to yellow
- If any of the lights are turned on, the others will not turn on
- But when I want to switch off the same bulb, all the other bulbs will light up, and regardless of which bulb I try to turn off then, they will remain on.
- I can only turn off the bulbs, by disabling the automation
Please help with the logic, the functionality is there but implemented wrong.
Can I report this to any Smartthings devs?
