Was wondering if there was a way to set a switch into smart bulb mode without having the hub via a series of taps on the switch itself. I know it sounds silly, but I’m waiting on a Home Assistant Yellow until January, and it would be nice to get a few of these in the wall with temporarily inoperable paddles instead of a physical light switch turning off that messes up the color temperature shifting of the smart bulbs throughout the day.
Are you expecting to bind to bulbs without a hub? You won’t be able to do that. If your bulbs are already on a network (hue) then you can just leave in the on/off mode and look at disabling local control.
That’s exactly what I was looking for! Couldn’t find it in the instructions under smart bulb mode, but didn’t think to poke around the hub specific spots. Thanks!
I’m not expecting to bind the bulbs yet, just want to avoid visitors toggling wall switches off while getting a head start on some installs before the hub comes. Thanks though!
