Is there a way to change the default blue color value in the Smart Lighting App? (Using Sylvania)

I work in IT at an office and my boss tasked me with getting 250 sylvania osram lightify RGBW 5/6 bulbs to replace all the bulbs in the office with smart bulbs. I have them all set up and then he wanted motion sensors in the conference rooms to be able to do the following:

7:30 AM all lights in the conference rooms and server room turn on, turn to blue, and 30% dim.
If motion is detected, Turn all of the lights in the perimeter of that room to blue at 100% and all of the other lights to daylight white at 100%.
When motion stops, turn all lights back to blue at 30% dim.

I have been able to do all of this using the Smart Lighting app, all the automations where pretty straightforward and simple to set up. The issue I am running into is the “Blue” in the smart lighting app has a hue value of 70, which looks much more like a purple-blue than it does blue. If we tell the Alexa to turn the lights blue, she sets the hue to 67, which looks much more like a true blue. Ideally, I would like the Blue to be set to 55 to match the logo of our company. Any ideas on how to change the preset “Blue” color in the Smart Lighting App? I have tried to use some community code to do the automations and I was able to change the blue in that code to 55 and it worked great, however that code only does time of day automations and does not support anything using motion sensors.

Any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

You’ll be able to do this fairly easily with webCore.

Thank you for the prompt reply! Looking into it now, just made a github account. How steep is the learning curve on webCore? So far, looking at the resources in github I am unsure what I am supposed to put into the ST to get started but I am working on it.

I’m not a programmer and figured it out fairly quickly. I is very powerful and IT people seem to be able to do anything with it. Search the webCore forum - changes are you’ll find a piston that will do what you’re looking for. If you do, it is just a matter of importing it to your installation. Good luck.

See the community FAQ (the topic title is a clickable link). there are a bunch of tutorial resources in the webcore forum. :sunglasses:

Thanks again for the suggestion! Once I figured out how to import webcore into the IDE and link the app to a browser I seem to have hit the ground running. Have already successfully accomplished everything I needed and then some and deleted all the other smart apps we were using. Thanks again!!


People who use web corewill still use smart lighting for some things if they want local operation. Maybe even just a couple of backup automations to cover times when the cloud is not available. But doing most of their everyday stuff in Webcore. :sunglasses:

^^^This! Can’t stress enough that webCoRE should be stock. It’s pretty straight forward once you learn the basic concept. As a matter of fact, the Author was hired by SmartThings!
