my setup contains a few lightbulbs of type “IKEA of Sweden TRADFRI bulb E27 CWS opal 600lm”, connected to a CC2531EMK Coordinator.
The Paper UI has discovered the bulbs, with only the Color channel: zigbee:device:stick1:xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx:xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx_1_color
This means I can control the Color, Brightness and Saturation through this channel. However, the light bulb also has a “white” mode. Cutting/restoring the power to the bulb makes it start in that white mode. That white mode cannot be set using the Color Channel. I expected another channel to access that mode, perhaps the Color Temperature?
I have tried adding the channel manually in the JsonDB, but it gets removed automatically. Adding the channel though a .things file does not work either.
Any hints on what to do? Should I buy the Tradfri Gateway to update the firmware of the bulbs? I have no idea what version they have currently.
