Just installed my first Inovelli switch (blue 2-1) that is bound (zigbee2mqtt) to two Philips Hue recessed downlights, which by default they are set for a daylight color temp. When I use the switch to turn on and off the lights they behave as they should and stay on the daylight color temp, but when I dim the lights using the switch they change to a warm white color temp. Even when I bring them back to full brightness they stay on the warm white. I then have to manually go into HomeAssistant to change color temp back to the daylight temp. Any suggestions on what is causing this?
Update: Forgot the mention that I have the switch in “smart bulb” mode.
I’m having the same issue with my rgb/white ambiance Hue lights (recessed and other ceiling fixtures) when using zigbee binding to the blue dimmers. I don’t think this has anything to do with HA due to this happening when dimming via direct binding (no controller or HA in the middle). This also only happens when physically dimming at the switch. If I set the brightness of the dimmer via zigbee2mqtt, it dims the bulbs without adjusting the color temperature.
I’m most interested in the likelihood of this being able to be solved via a firmware update vs it being something that is the nature of the binding on this switch to hue bulbs. Unsure if that’s reasonable to speculate on at this point?
Can anyone perhaps confirm if this also impacts non-Hue color temp shifting bulbs? Plenty of time left on the 30 day return window, but curious nonetheless before I install the rest of them across my house.
We do have the engineers looking into the issue. The strange thing is that I have 2 different versions of the Hue bulb. It happens on one of them, but not the other. Also does not happen on my Sylvania bulbs. A workaround is to use scenes instead of binding, but I’m sure we will get it fixed if it is a problem with the switch.
For Hubitat users here is an example of the workaround. Response time is actually really good, but I know it isn’t a permanent solution for those of you that want to use binding.
What color mode does the Innr bulb report when dimming? Hue bulbs are only displaying this behavior in CT (color_temp) mode and I know some rgb bulbs don’t support that mode- could the Innr be staying in an RGB (xy/hs) mode and, therefore, not experience this issue? Wondering if this is a Hue-specific issue vs a CT color mode issue.
The firmware engineers seem to have identified the part of the level command that is causing certain (newer?) Hue bulbs to change color temperature. I’m hoping to hear tonight about what the resolution will be. I’ll keep the thread updated.
