Simulated RGB bulb Troubles

I was wondering if anyone has used the simulated rgb bulb device type on smart things. What I am trying to accomplish is make a virtual device that when it changes colors and levels etc makes several sets of garden spots change along with it… I have a working setup in webcore and had no problems with that side of things but the problem is the virtual switch. It’s really unstable and when I launch the color wheel to select a color it crashes the entire smart-things app! Does anyone know why or how to fix this… Anything I can try or other devices that people are using to successfully accomplish my goal?
