Still a noob at all this, how do I go by adding this to apps? Thanks in advance
Hi. Can you be more specific in what you’re trying to do?
Much better now, no errors in the logs and status is updating fine! I did not notice any issues with the Hue indicator yet but will let you know if I do. Thank you!
So far excellent!!! Thank you this is perfect I been wanting something to change color like yours does for a while.
How to I add your code to smartthings.
Here’s the best place to start:
Finally had a chance to read things through. I have it working now. Impressive work. I like the code. Thank you
Hi pals, I installed core yesterday, maybe its time to slowly put my devices from RM to Core but seems like complicated and some features that I don’t really understand what’s that or what for. Though I tried to do one but no time as I describe and I hope you will help me or correct what I did. Here’s the devices used:
Light, contact door sensor in bathroom, motion sensor that can sense outside the bathroom. What I want is to set level of light to 20% in bathroom when motion sense and turn it off after 30secs when motion is inactive and contact door sensor is open. While if somebody use the bathroom I want light to set level 95% (contact door sensor close). And turn off light after 10 sec when door will open. I did it using combination of RM and smart lighting. I did it with two cores On and Off for the light. I don’t know it could be done with one core only. Here’s what I did:
door contact changes to open
fade level from 95% to 0 in 10s
motion changes to inactive and door contact is open
fade level from 30% to 0 30 secs
contact door is open AND motion sensor changes to active
set light level to 30%
contact door changes to close
set light level to 95%
The OSRAM app provides some cool color-cycling functionality… any idea if / how to implement this in ST?
Great stuff George! That’s how they implemented the color loop on the US HA bulbs!
The European ZLL versions of these can use the extended ZLL commands including the dedicated colorLoop mode.
This is awesome…finally a DTH that actually is made for the Osram A19 RGBW! Thank you!
FYI, I also have a LIGHTIFY tape strip under my TV (and soon to be few sets under kitchen cabinets) which works great with this DTH. I haven’t tried it on the gardenspots but anticipating it will not work due to RGB only LED’s.
Has anyone tried using the loopOn or loopOff commands with CoRE? I can’t get a piston to initiate loopOn.
Good work! Doesn’t appear to work with the Osram RGBW can lights, though.
EDIT: I take it back. After updating the firmware in the bulbs (RT56 RGBW 65 01) to the latest version (01020492), they seem to work just fine with this DTH. Even better work!
Hi there! I’m new to ST and was just pointed to this DTH - I love it! I’m hoping you guys can clarify a couple things:
- I read that ST can control 3 variables for RGBW lights: Hue, Saturation and Level. Each one is a value from 0 to 100. I this still correct?
- The Hue slider in this DTH goes from 0 to 360 - I also found a list of common colors and the colors only go up to 100. Are we using a different scale here, or why the 360?
- The Saturation is displayed, but not something I can control. Is that a bug, or am I missing something?
- Is there a DTH for GardenSpot lights? They only have the RGB LEDs, white is missing.
PS. Is there any way to set a default color/brightness for when the bulb loses power? The Lightify app (paired with the OSRAM hub) has this option.
This DTH for the gardenspots is the one that a lot of people use.
Hi. Glad you’ve found the DTH to be useful.
I read that ST can control 3 variables for RGBW lights: Hue, Saturation and Level. Each one is a value from 0 to 100. I this still correct?
Correct – use the level slider for 1-100 (0 is off)
The Hue slider in this DTH goes from 0 to 360 - I also found a list of common colors and the colors only go up to 100. Are we using a different scale here, or why the 360?
See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HSL_and_HSV for explanation of why I chose to use 360
The Saturation is displayed, but not something I can control. Is that a bug, or am I missing something?
I did not implement a saturation slider, since I did not find that using saturation other than 100 is useful. However, one can use the color picker to choose a color with saturation other than 100
Wow this is great. Have 3 sets of RGBW flex strips color looping. Any chance these light strips can be grouped to allow synchronization of colors.
I believe there is a color binder. I can’t remember but a search for it might come up. I’m watching the Superbowl or I would.
Any chance these light strips can be grouped to allow synchronization of colors.
Thanks! I have CoRE loaded just not yet versed. Time to read up and figure my way.
