Firstly, sorry if the solution for this topic is published already - couldn’t find it.
I want to have few lighting groups, have them divided into rooms, and change the color temperature. So… I can’t use official Lighting Groups in this case (correct me if I’m wrong).
I came up with an idea to create simulated switch “helper” which params will be mirrored to specific bulbs. And I can distribute those helpers into rooms easly too.
I created new device with “Simulated White Color Temperature Bulb” type.
I used smart lighting to mirror on/off state + dimmer, but I couldn’t mirror colorTemperature… So I used webCoRE to handle this - it’s working now.
The thing is that the colorTemperature slider range is not correct (I have IKEA tradfri bulbs with 2200-4000K range), and mentioned DTH produces:
- 2000-6500 range in the new app
- 2200-7000 in the old app
I came up with an idea to create my custom dth based on the official one:
I created new dth, tweaked some values, saved and published (for me), and then…
- I can’t open the new device with this dth ONLY in the new app - “Can’t connect to the device. Check device and try again.”
- I don’t see any values of new app config (2000-6500). Only (2200…7000) which is used in the old app
Does anyone know what’s going on here?
And one more thing, how to debug things like this? I couldn’t find any errors of incorrectly created dth/device/anything.
