I have two Inovelli tunable white bulbs in a floor lamp. Except for the Hubitat, these are the only smart components involved and the lamp is plugged into a regular wall outlet. This outlet is not controlled by a wall switch.
I want these bulbs to do three things:
- When the lamp is on, start adjusting the color temperature at 9:45am from 3000 K to 5500 K over the course of 30 minutes. This is the "Desk light fade into day" rule in the screenshots below.
- When the lamp is on, starting adjusting the color temperature at sunset -90 from 5500 K to 3000 K over 45 minutes. This is "Desk light fade into evening".
- When the light off and then switched on, set the color temperature to 5500k if the time is between 9:45 am and sunset -90. Outside that timespan, the bulbs should turn on to 3000 K. This "Desk lamp on".
Here are my rules. I have the two bulbs grouped as the 'Desk lamp' device.
The fade rules are working fine, but it doesn't jump to the proper color temperature by itself if i turn the lamp on in the evening or early morning. However, if I log into the Hubitat and run the rule manually, the rule works and the color temp changes right away.
I know I'm close but I'm missing something. Any suggestions how I can make this work?
