Gauge more than 3 severity steps?

Hello lovely people ( :
i set up 2 gauges according to:

while defining the severitys i noticed that as soon as i set a 4th color step it falls back to one color for every severity.

is there any known way to fix this?

with kind regards

severity only supports green, yellow and red so not sure how you can say you set it up according to the docs if you are talking about a 4th severity colour.

Share some code?

type: gauge
entity: sensor.kitchen_humidity
needle: true
min: 20
max: 80
segments:
  - from: 0
    color: '#db4437'
  - from: 35
    color: '#ffa600'
  - from: 40
    color: '#43a047'
  - from: 60
    color: '#ffa600'
  - from: 65
    color: '#db4437'

Must have needle: true for multi segment

Thankf you for your Tips @rossk & @VDRainer sadly i dont like to have segments :confused:

You can change your colors like:

    severity:
      purple: 125
      orange: 250
      red: 500

and in this example there is even a “4th color” because before the value of 125 lovelaces default color (blue) is shown as gauge.

i tried adding an aditional color by just adding the next line like ‘yellow: 750’ but it didnt work :frowning:

Ahh wow I was not aware you could write any colour. Nice find.

But yes it is 3 only for now, plus the default blue as you mentioned if you start above 0.

150 steps…
colors picked from Leonardo (leonardocolor.io) then some procrastinating tinkering with excel and formating in visual studio…

There is nothing special from what was said above. I just had to spend 1,5hrs by formatting a long code. I generated the color codes in the Adobe Leonardo open source online tool and then played with excel, exported in csv and formatted it properly in visual studio code.
