My device list doesn't update very frequently

I am trying to determine some statuses of certain devices and when I look at my device in the developer web gui it will show that it updated like 35 minutes ago even though it has been doing things since then. For example I am trying to write a CoRE piston to turn my lights down when I press play on my kodi. I am trying to see what the status is at various times but even though I am playing a movie the status is saying stopped and updated 36 minutes ago. Can I some how do a refresh? Also, I would like to know what the colour of my hue bulbs are so I can program the colour into a piston.
