Hi, I was wondering if anyone as done anything to replace old apps that used DTH to the new world of edge drivers.
My problem is I have a zigbee RGB module connected to an RGB LED Strip and I was until recently using the Garden Hue app to sequence a colour change when its switched on. Now that app as stopped working … I am trying to find an alternative way to achieve the same.
Ive installed a zigbee edge driver with the help of the community ( thank you) but I cant seem to make use of it with any of the standard ST apps or options such as routines or scenes.
I thought of using Alexa routine but that doesn’t have options that would allow me to loop the colour changes.
Does anybody have any colour changing /looping apps or suggestions please ?
The problem I see with the edge counter is that whilst very useful ( will be looking at if for other things) it doesnt provide the ability to loop back round , so yes
eq (secs) change colour , eq sec change colour but once it gets to the end of any colour sequence its will just stop.
Looked at Sharptools ( haven’t used for a while) couldn’t see how to achieve this with a rule. My lack of knowledge of Sharptools probably means I don’t understand but I couldn’t see how you could create a secondary trigger and then even if you could how that would return to the start of a sequence.
Surely this is a basic function that ST should include in their routine?
You can suggest it, but smartthings doesn’t even provide a way to make basic actionable light groups (you can put lights in a group together, but while you can manually turn the group on and off in the app, you can’t do much else with it), and they don’t provide a way to do blink, so I suspect color looping and other effects is a long way down their to do list. But you never know.
Are you wanting it to do an infinite loop to keep changing the colors? If so, you need a second routine another virtual device to keep track of reaching the end of color changing and to re-trigger the first routine.
