With you no longer using SmartThings (and no appropriate way to test between ST and webCoRE), is it possible to find a community developer that you can throw the SmartApp over to that could look into the issues people are experiencing and is willing to maintain it moving forward? :slight_smile:

I’m still hoping to be able to continue support to some level, but anyone in free to submit pull requests.

same here…


(Working on a secret project, are we, sir?) #228

Will not find my Hue Bridge. Can’t even add it via the IP.


#229

Same here. It seems like the bulbs do not reflect the status of the actual hue bulbs if any commands are issued from the hue.

There is a delay (longer with Hub V1 than Hub V2); but status should eventually update).

I’m trying this out for the circadian daylight feature and want to know if disabling CD for a group will be sufficient to disable the feature for the bulbs in that group. I see that there’s a toggle for the group and each individual bulb. Do I need to disable the feature for both the group and the individual bulbs?


(Clayton) #232

If you have a group and the individual bulbs both added in SmartThings then you would need to disable in both places.


(Richard Peng) #233

That makes sense. Do I need to install the Circadian Daylight Coordinator for the integration to work?


(Clayton) #234

Yes, the coordinator and child, and set up the coordinator and at least one child instance.


(Richard Peng) #235

Great! It seems to be working. How often does the app update the brightness and color temperature?

I’ve noticed that the circadian settings automatically disable when I manually change a light and I have to re-enable the setting manually in the app, which can get annoying since the rest of my setup is controlled automatically or through Alexa. Is there a way to automatically re-enable those settings when the light is power cycled or the mode changes from a mode where CD is disabled to a mode where CD is enabled?

Also, would I put my Hue color bulbs under color bulbs or color temperature bulbs? I’m assuming color bulbs. Thanks for the replies! I appreciate the feedback and am looking forward to seeing this work.


(Clayton) #236

Every 15 minutes the lights should be adjusted. In my experience it’s pretty much unnoticeable.

Yes, if you manually adjust a light it disables CD. It would be impossible for me to write logic or options for automatically re-enabling that would work for everyones needs so my suggestion would be to use another SmartApp (CORE, etc.) to handle the logic for re-enabling CD.

The order of “preference” is Color Temperature>Color>Brightness. Even though Hue Color lights have the capability to do color, for the purposes of CD color temperature is more efficient/accurate. Some color lights don’t have the ability to take in a color temperature value so they can be set with RGB to mimic the desired color temperature.


(Richard Peng) #237

Makes sense. This piston does the trick for me:

Thanks for the clarification. I’ve switched back to using color temperature for my hue color lights.


(George Shu) #238

Have you had any luck with this? I believe I’m having the same issue


(Pedaars) #239

I am getting an error when trying to set this up in the smartthings app i get to the end and click save and receive a banner that an unexpected error has occured. I have removed my hue devices and followed the instructions to install.

With live logging I can see the following error

org.springframework.security.access.AccessDeniedException: Access is denied @line -1 (doCall)

Hi,

I remember that I was able to change the transition time of each bulb separately. For a long time I didn’t need this feature. But I just added 2 new bulbs and I want to set them to 1sec. transition as all of my other bulbs.
I couldn’t find how it was possible. Can anyone tell me please ?
Also, what is the Colormode ? (it is set to xy on all of my bulbs except one which is hs, I want to make it identical)


(ilker Aktuna) #241

I’D appreciate a reply…
