Routine with smart bulb - intermittent
« on: October 09, 2018, 05:00:14 pm »
Hi all

Newbie here  :)

I’ll get straight to the point. I have a dot and 6 GU10 smart bulbs by Lohas in my living room. Up until this weekend I only had 2 bulbs (to test performance) and the worked fine, so I bought 4 more.

Since then, when invoking a routine to dim or brighten the lights, 1 or 2 bulbs don’t behave properly.

For example, I have a routine to ‘bright’ lights which sets all 6 bulbs to ‘cool’ and 100% brightness. 1 or 2 bulbs will turn on but be ‘warm’ and dull. When I say the command again, the 1 or 2 bulbs then go to the correct settings.

It doesn’t happen all the time, and never happened before I had 6.

So what’s happening? Too many commands in a routine?

Appreciate any help!

Thanks

Same one or two, yeah. But they work properly the second time.

then try changing the position within the routine.

I’ve tried putting a delay in between each set of bulbs. For example, front 2 bulbs turn on, Alexa says ‘front’. This is repeated 3 times until all are on.

This was working well earlier but I’ve just tried it now and a different bulb turned on but not at the right brightness.

Any ideas?
