Smartlightting: Set level/color per device?


(Christian) #1

New ST user here - have been using Harmony Hub for a year or so, but I’m now migrating the automation/lighting in our house to ST as I think each action takes up too much space on the Harmony Remote - anyway:

One thing I’m sorely missing in the ST app (or can’t find) is how to set the level (and color) per device when creating a Smart Lighting automation SmartApp in IOS (e.g. at 8am turn on Devices A @ 30%, B @ 40% and C @ 100%).

Is this not possible? The Harmony had that build in.

Thanks

Not possible with the official smart lighting feature, but you can do it with core.

You can do it with smart lighting, but you will need to create multiple rules.

Under Turn on & Set Color you can choose color and dim level.

Core will allow you to do it with one rule with multiple actions.

Thanks for your replies, guys. I had a feeling it was a choice between Core and doing it per-light-per-action - either of which solutions are somewhat cumbersome for something that isn’t complicated. Pity it can’t be done out of the box. I might end up leaving some of the lights in the Logitech instead then.
