Thanks for the info! I think building the logic in rule machine might be my best bet. I was just hoping to leverage the scenes app since it seemed to be built for this sort of thing.
Basically I have been using a GE Smart Switch 14292 to control my garage and front porch lights. I decided to add some Sengled zigbee based multicolor bulbs to these fixtures for use around the holidays and the like. The thought was to create scenes for the different holidays / seasons and call them from my time of day based rules in rule machine. Trick is the bulbs need power to receive the set color commands.
Most of the time things seem to work, but it looks like the switch is in the middle of the list. So occassionally the earlier bulbs don't receive the command to change colors.
I know most would say to leave power applied and control on/off from the bulb. But I have been attempting to keep manual switches available. So in this case I'm stuck with single taps for on and off of the switch, but have double taps set to activate a couple of different scenes.
