Is it possible to use the color temp of a specific Hue bulb as a trigger in Rule Machine? I’m trying to figure out an easy way to have a virtual switch turn on whenever a Harmony activity is started. I have a specific light in the room with the tv change the color temp to 6500k when an activity starts (as bias lighting). What I’m trying to do is have a virtual switch, that represents the tv being on, turn on when that lamp is at 6500k.
There are a few threads about how to accomplish this that might be helpful. If you want to go the route you specified above, I think this app will be helpful.
i was trying to get Rules Machine to check value of any device attribute and trigger an action on match or non-match. didnt find a way to do it. so heres some code that does that.
any device attribute can be compared with an entered value and selected commands can be run either on match or non-match.
the param fields are there for commands that need a parameter to run … like set level on a light.
here is the child app for each new WATO that is defined:
this functionality should probably…
Otherwise, take a look at these threads. They are all informative and can help depending on your hardware/comfort level with the procedures outlined:
I sort of had an "Ah Ha!" moment this morning. Ever since moving from Smartthings to Hubitat Elevation I've been struggling with being able to get instant updates from the status of my Home Theater Harmony Hub.
@mattw port of the ST Harmony Connect app does a great job of allowing us to control harmony activities, it relies on polling to get feedback from harmony as to which activity is currently active. As a result, automations that I use that rely on knowing the state of these activit…

As of right now, this is not a control…
I was able to recreate the piston above in RM, so all my device automations are now on HE
I ended up removing Harmony from HE, I don't want to maintain and sync it in two places and I don't have a good way to get instant status updates in HE, where I do in ST. The only thing I need to know for my HE automations is if either of my two hubs has an activity running, so I created a virtual switch that gets turned on by ST whenever an activity is on, and used that to run my automation…
Which specific integration are you using? Hopefully the one based off of the ST Harmony Hub integration? That's one I believe most of us are currently using.
Assuming that is the correct integration... Yes, you should expect a delay of up to about 5 minutes... Not ideal, for sure...
I haven't noticed this. But truth be told, I probably would not notice it as I use the integration to simply start an activity as part of a larger routine/scene. I do not use the status of the Harmony A…
