Lifx Group of Groups Driver (ST port)

#21

Not at the moment AFAIK.


#22

Add it to the “we’ll get around to it someday maybe” list? :wink:


#23

Get the latest from my github. I think I got everything. Let me know if you run into any issues.


#24

Yup, that works - although I can’t set the colour from Alexa (or from the device page)


#25

ALEXA
You would need a skill to set color from alexa. I don’t control my Lifx bulb through habitat. I use the direct Lifx skill on my echo for voice control.

DEVICE PAGE
At least at the time that I initially wrote this driver, setColor was not yet supported but on the hubitat to do list for any driver using the method… When I get feedback that it is live I will attempt to add that functionality.


#26

Actually looking back at the old post by @mike.maxwell it may be added on 707.
@mike.maxwell can you confirm that setcolor is live.


#27

Ah, okay. I just assumed that it was supposed to work. Not a problem in any way


#28

yes, live


#29

Great, thanks.
@rob, I’ll work on it this week. Don’t set your expectations too high :wink: because this was my first stab at setting up a color device and it’s a little more complicated than I expected. I haven’t found a set guideline in ST or hubitat yet, so basically I’ll be testing against my Hue devices and trying to mimic on this Lifx driver.


#30

setColor should now work according to Hubitat standards. See update notes for details.


#31

Great, I’ll give it a go tomorrow.


#32

Nope, still not working for me

#33

What are u using to set the color?
It supports
setColor(map)
Where map is [hue:, saturation:, level:]


#34

Ah, okay, that wasn’t clear, I assumed it was just a name. What are the ranges of those values?


#35

0-100
Had to change them to match hubitat’s methodology with the hue integration


#36

There might be options missing…just let me know what commands don’t work and what app you are sending the command from


#37

The map settings didn’t copy correctly in my last post. See quote above.


#38

Aha, that worked! At least from the device page - no idea what I’d need to do for Alexa


#39

Alexa won’t control color on hubitat devices…only on/off and brightness. For color you would need to use the lifx skill.


#40

Fair enough
