I have two color changing OSRAM Lightify devices now (Flex and a BR30). When I adjust color temperature and brightness in the app I find things work as expected (temp/luminosity adjust accordingly). However, when I close the app and come back after a while I find the app almost always indicates color temp and brightness settings at 2700k and 99%, regardless of their actual status. I have a series of questions:
- How can I get the Smart Things app to maintain proper state? Is there a Smart App that queries the bulb to check status when I open the app? That’s just one idea…
- How come the app shows 99% as the max? The perfectionist in me wants to understand how to drive the units at 100% (true PWM duty cycle of “always on” which would actually have a meaningful positive impact on lifespan of the drive components).
- Is there a form of digital entry instead of the stupid analog slider? I’ve found myself repeatedly frustrated as I try to slide back and forth to hit the 10% mark for brightness.
