I know their is currently no single item file that can both turn on and off a color/dimmer bulb and also control its color in all 1 item.
And I know you can create separate items for the switch and color item and use visibility as well, but that it still using 2 separate items.
The Hue App does this nicely and the Imperihome widgets also does this nicely with 1 ‘widget’ that you can both control ON and OFF and set the color/dimmer levels.
So…I wondering what can maybe done via some mappings, json transformation, or other options. For example, if you could take a mapping of Switch like this, and then someone when pressing Color it would open the color wheel for the item.
Color works as expected, but I’m hoping to have an ON|OFF option with a Color item. Currently, you need to click and hold left arrow to Dim down to 0 to turn off. It would be great if you could simply turn off a color item in one step.
So yes, you can setup a Color item as both a Switch and Colorpicker, but now you need 2 items vs 1.
