LiFX light turns on everyday at 6:32am

I am trying to track down why this particular bulb turns on every morning and slowly increases its brightness over several hours. Its possible that it could be from some obscure setting when I was first trying to become acquainted with automation, but the event logs in ST IDE only show that the bulb turns on at 6:32am and increases brightness slightly in increments of 5 minutes with no source for this behaviour. It is not in any routine such as good morning or im back. I suppose it could be in one of those but I dont see the light set for that and I dont use those routines at all. Any ideas? Its pretty maddening to not know why this is going on.

Thanks.

If you go into the IDE -> Devices and click on the device, when you scroll down is there anything in the ‘In Use By’ section?

Yea,

Its in use by Amazon Alexa, Action Tiles, and WebCore.

None of these, that I have seen, are telling that bulb to do anything at any time of day. I am obviously missing something. lol

Is there anything in the recently tab for the device in the ST app on your phone for 06:32?
EDIT: I take it the webCoRE entry looks like below?

No pistons defined.

Yea, the same thing that’s in the event log. Ill just post it here to show you. Thank you for the quick response BTW.

It appears to spontaneously just ‘turn on.’ Very odd.

The webcore entry does look like what you posted, however I do have pistons. None of them control the Foyer light though.

I don’t have any LIFX lights so know nothing about them.
Do they use their own hub or are they connected directly to the ST hub?
Don’t know what else to suggest I’m afraid.
Maybe enable live logging at 6:25 and see if this shows anything up.
If you have no apps loaded for the device it doesn’t make sense. :thinking:
Which you know already of course.

Did you create a schedule for the lights from the LIFX app?

@bobbles
How to i schedule live logging? Thats a great idea.

@TonyFleisher
I dont have anything scheduled in the lifx app. I have never used it for anything like that. I use echo for almost everything if possible.

HAHAHA! I looked in my LIFX app for shits and giggles and sure enough, there is a Day&Dusk setting on this damn light! I dont remember doing that, but I do remember looking at this when it was added in a LiFX app update. I cant believe I didnt think to look in the most obvious place to fix this. It’s the “cant see the forest for the trees” thing going on here! lol

Thanks man. I do believe we can close this case! @dkbishop <----- dumb

Go into the IDE.
Across the top you have a number of options, one of which is live logging.
Just click on it and away you go.
As events are received for devices you will see the device appear at the top. Click on the device when it appears to filter for the logs for that device.

@bobbles
ok man, I thought there may be a way to trigger live logging at a certain time. Thanks for the help. I do believe this one is fixed now.

See above. lol

Good stuff. As I don’t have LIFX I know nothing about them so didn’t realise they had their own app.
As long as it’s sorted, that is all that matters.
We both learned something today. :slight_smile:
