I’m trying to use Zignito RGBW GU10 lamps with Hubitat and I’m having trouble getting scenes to apply correctly to the 9 lamps in our kitchen ceiling.
The basic problem: The lamps don’t come on correctly (random/mix/most in prior state) if call the scene with them initially turned OFF. If the lamps are ON when I call the scene all lamps set to the right colour.
What have I tried:
*Turn on “Enable optimisation”
*Turn on “Enable metering” and set to 1000ms
*Turn on “Enable discrete on for activation”
Now, I thought the last one would crack it but none of the above fixed the problem. Why did I think the last one was the solution?.....
What I then found was that if I send a colour setting directly from the device page in Hubitat the lamps come on BUT DON’T change to the correct colour. I think this is closer to the root cause, but that makes me wonder why “Enable discrete on for activation” didn’t fix it?
Indeed, with “Enable discrete on for activation” turned on I cannot see two stages (on then colour change) in any of the lamps that change to the correct colour. The same is true if I add metering at 1000ms, there seems to be just one command to the lamp as opposed to two (on + colour). It’s like that switch isn’t working in Hubitat.
Finally, instead of building the scene around the 9 separate lamps, I built the scene from two groups (3+6) that I have set up for other reasons and it works perfectly. So in the end I find:
*Sending a colour command to a single lamp device turns it on but does not set its colour
*Sending the command again then sets its colour okay
*Placing a single lamp into a group and then sending a set colour command to the group turns on the lamp AND sets the colour correctly
*When I send just a colour command to a group device I see the device turn on and then change colour
If this is all correct, my conclusion is that the Zignito lamps need an “On” command and then a “Set colour” command and that the “Enable discrete on for activation” switch in Hubitat doesn’t work.
But I’m probably wrong, it’s only my first day with my new Hubby lol!!!
I’m really looking forward to playing my part in the community, sorry to be here with a “need” as my first post. Anyone got any thoughts or suggestions for me? Thanks!
