What version of Hue Connect are you using? The stock one found in marketplace or are you using one of the custom ones found in the forum?
I absolutely can not replicate this with my hue lights…
Gen 1 & 2 Hue Color bulbs connected to a Gen 2 Hue Bridge.
Automations are controlled by CoRE.
All colors are changing as programmed.
Button controller (minimotes) are setting the colors as programmed
Setting colors in ST app works just fine
I just double checked my Hue Connect SmartApp… While in the SmartApps tab of the IDE it looks like I’m using the stock app…
but, in reality it seems that I am actually using this little piece of code here.
Maybe give this one a shot… I wonder if you just copy and paste this over your current code if you will keep everything, or if you will lose all of your bulbs and have to rebuild… hmmmmm… I can’t promise what it will do… I haven’t touched this in months…
Edit 24 August 2016
I’ve double checked all of my stuff. I am NOT running the custom smartapp of hue connect I posted above. I am running the stock ST smartapp that is installed via the market place. I am however, running a custom dth for my bulbs. All bulbs are connected to the hue bridge.
I can not duplicate any of these problems. I’ve been running all of this for months, with no issue.
This is where you can find the device handler I’m using. Since these bulbs are zigbee you should be able to install this dth and change the dth for your bulbs in the ide. Then by refreshing the bulb in the app, it should update the dth. I was reminded this morning that the dth is what calls the color, not the smartapp. If this is a major problem for you, you can give it a try.
@Aaron please feel free to look at my account fit troubleshooting this. I am not having any problems and can not duplicate the issue.
