Treat color/CT bulb as switch in scene

I have some color/CT bulbs that I would like treated like a switch, or really, I'd just like to send the on command and not include the "dimmer level" and "color temp". The devices work best when I just use on and off.

Currently, I'm using the Rule Machine to listen for when the scene turns on and turns on the color/CT bulbs, but it would be nicer not to have the scene logic defined in 2 separate locations.

Room Lighting can let you define "scenes" and use a device as only a switch if you want (by changing its activation type). I would suggest trying that instead to see if it works for you.

You can "import" your existing scene and then just make this change so you don't have to re-create it all manually, though if it does work, you'll need to swap out the old scene activator device for the new Room Lighting activator device in the apps you're using it in.
