My first time playing with the Blue 2in1. The Inovelli Blue is updated to firmware 2.14. The 3 Eria Zigbee bulbs and the Blue dimmer have been set up for Group Messaging following the instructions on the Inovelli forum.
Shortly a Aeotec MS 7 will be added into the mix. In the meantime, I could dig out a Zooz 4in1 and then just sub it out once I get the MS7 installed.
For now, what I would like is the bulbs to come on at a set brightness and CT depending on the time of the day. Usually I'd go to Rule Machine and buttons, but I'm guessing there are newer, better ways to do this, so I'm looking for suggestions.
Two things I would like to avoid:
-Switch failing to work manually if I have a hub failure
-being blinded at 3am with the bulbs first coming on at their last known setting before communicating with the hub and going to 1500k @ 15% brightness.
What does the community feel the best route to tackle this is?
