Doesn’t show any related infos.

The action Licht_Wohnzimmer_Esstisch_Weiss doesn’t do anything. Other Actions are working. The problem is with different hardware (RGBW and RGBWW). What can I do?

best regards,

Did you read about the limitations?

for rgbv2Led/rgbwLed the colorpicker will only set the hue and brightness and change to whitemode if the saturation is under a given threshold of 50%.

Thanks for your message. I’ve also tested with a RGBWW Lamp where changing saturation is working, but whitemode not…

if whitemode is not working how can I switch back to “normal” light after changing to a color?

I have the same problem since I updated to 2.2. The LED temperature isn’t working either.
You can go back to white selecting it from the color picker.

Hi @David_Graff,
Are you still mantaining this binding? OH 2.2 update has broken it. I have a V3-V5 bridge and since I updated, color temperature, night mode, animation mode and animation speed don’t work.

I am using OH 2.2 with V6 bridge and I have the same problem with white, I can use the colorpicker to set a low saturation but that only uses the color mix to represent white it doesn’t actually switch to using the white LEDs, obviously the color temperature wont change because that effects the white LEDs.not the color mix.

Search this forum for espmilighthub binding, I wrote this for a new open source hub that controls milight globes. All those things u say is broken is working fine in my binding.

I found an odd solution to this problem. Use ledtemperature instead of ledwhitemode as a switch in Items. Then, use a single mapping for ON in sitemaps (i.e. mappings=[ON=“White”]). Actually, any mapping works strangely… Also make sure autoupdate is set to false in items so that it functions as a push button and not as a switch.

You can also pan between whitemode and nightmode after pressing the push button with the color picker.

Thanks for the suggestion. Using ledtemperature instead of ledwhitemode works for rgbwwLed items (yeah!), but it doesn’t work for rgbwLed items as far as I can see.
