Hope you guys can help me out with the subject. Or maybe, you may tell me if I have “overkilled” my setup.
I have a ceiling light fixture in use with a wall switch.— The bulbs are Philips Hue, the switch is a GE z wave smart toggle switch (14292).
Can you all tell me the proper way to use these together?-- I would like to have the normal/ standard home “feel” (wall switches) while also having the colored bulbs.
Also, if I’m not mistaken, is it true that every time I turn the GE smart switch to off that the Philips Bulb will lose the prior color the next time I turn it on from the wall switchthat was set up before it lost power (so it has no “memory” per se).
If that is the case, it just seems kind of “dumb”.
Lastly, is there a way to link the bulb to the switch within the smartthings setup? (It just seems weird to me to have the switch showing “on” but the bulb showing “off” in the smartthings app)
Using these items together seems like the perfect solution. But I feel there are better ways to do this than the issues I am speaking of above.
Hope you guys can give me a hand with the concept of using these together.
