Default turn-on brightness/color temperature for lights

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007f3263fbc858> #<Tag:0x00007f3263fbc600>

This Blueprint allows you to select 1+ lights/light groups and their default brightness and color temperature. It also work for bulbs that only have brightness and do not have a color temperature option.

This is useful for lights that do not have a default brightness/color temperature for when they turn on (like Sengled zigbee bulbs) and instead turn on to the state they were when they were turned off. So, if you set your lights at 10% in the evening then turned them off, they will be at 10% when you turn them on in the morning instead of 100% like you prefer.

Although Home Assistant’s Default Turn-on Value supports brightness and x/y color it does not color temperature. In addition, for lights that do have a Default Turn-on Value they sometimes do not quickly check for brightness when they are first physically powered on versus turned on by automation, UI, or smart switch.

  This is useful when the bulb''s previous/current state is not what you want as default.'

How can I have this on a Toggle Switch? I.e Press 1 button once, it turns on to desired colour and temp. Press same button again, it turns off light

It shouldn’t matter how the lights turn on as long as they are smart lights. The automation is triggered by the smart bulbs turning on then it sets the brightness/temperature.
Some of my bulbs turn on my smart switch, some by the regular light switch, and another by automation.

Thank you for this blueprint. Is there any way to use it with RGBW leds? I dont see a way of choosing white value

I’d be happy to modify or duplicate this blueprint for RGBW bulbs, but first I want to make sure this ability doesn’t already exist. Also, I don’t have an RGBW bulb so you’ll have to help answer this question.
Home Assistant has Default Turn-on Value which allows you to set brightness and color (using the xy_color option). This blueprint imitates that for color_temperature.

Does the white_value get set correctly in the xy_color choice or is the white_value completely independent from the white LED pixel(s)?

To test you can create a file called ‘light_profiles.csv’ in your config folder. Mine looks like this:

Let me know what you know/find.

The white_value is independent. Find below 2 examples for whites, one using xy and the other one by using dedicated white leds. Not sure if this is what you meant. Let me know if you need anything else and I will be ready to help :slight_smile:

xy (rgb):
effect_list: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4
brightness: 255
hs_color: 0, 0
rgb_color: 255, 255, 255
xy_color: 0.323, 0.329
effect: 0
friendly_name: Led_bajo_libreria
supported_features: 149

White dedicated Leds:
effect_list: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4
brightness: 255
white_value: 255
effect: 0
friendly_name: Led_bajo_libreria
supported_features: 149

So does “xy_color: 0.323, 0.329” and “white_value: 255” make the same color light?

Or do you have to have “rgb_color: 255, 255, 255” AND “xy_color: 0.323, 0.329” in order to get the same as just using “white_value: 255”?
