this weekend I got a new Ikea tradfri bulb. The bulb is connected to my hue base. I can control evertyhing fine. But if I tunr off the bulb via HUE App this event is not showing up in basicUI. On the other side if I turn the light on via hue app, the will be shwon in basic ui (within a litte time).
As this things is just having 4 channels I’m using “color_temperature” as switch.

Switch Light_switch “switch” ( gLight) [“Lighting”, “Switchable”] {channel=“hue:0220:XXXXX:X:color_temperature”}

any Ideas what is missing?



Hi @_David,

AFAIK the color_temperature channel cannot handle ON-OFF- commands. Did you try to use the brightness or color channel?

As my bulb has only brightness itried that: great thats the solution.
