Hi! I tried to google about this, but again found nothing. So, I have ZigBee module attached to my Raspberry PI and I have paired some Ikea Trådfri bulbs to my Home Assistant installation (zha platform) in order to reduce number of devices on my desk (Ikea gateway). What I found out, that if I power on my bulbs using power switch on the wall, NOT home assistant UI, Home Assistant never detects this. When I was using Ikea’s gateway, this was detected, however it took too long time for my use case.
So my question is that should this be detected? I understand that power off cannot be detected, but at least when I took a look of debug log I can see that when lights are powered on from power switch they seem to send signal which is detected by home assistant. But should home assistant react on this or not? If not, then perhaps this would be doable with simple scripting, no?
It may seem odd that I would like to detect power on from power switch, but in my use case it is extremely useful to know when lights are on. It does not matter if home assistant thinks light is on even if’s actually powered down from power switch. I am using customized fluxer to control color temperature and brightness of bulbs and for that to work, home assistant needs to know that bulbs are on, no matter how they have been powered on. Otherwise I may get dim orange light on the morning…
Thanks again a lot!
