Help Needed: Shelly.Cloud Bulb (RGBW) via MQTT

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007f77fddd2468>

Hi All

I tried to make my Shelly.Cloud Bulb work, but i seem to be missing something.

According to https://shelly-api-docs.shelly.cloud/?shell#bulb-mqtt
I should send on and off commands to the /color/0/command topic, but the rest of the commands should go to the /color/0/set topic. Then status is always provided back in /color/0/status

I have tried various different configurations, but i always end up something missing or working completely. EG: I can switch on the light, change colors (rgb), but not switch off. Or i can switch on and off, but not change color (rgb), etc etc

Here i have posted my two most recent configs.

In the “LED Huiskamer 1-a” config i need the brightness_command_template, so it doesn’t just send the brightness as an INT to the /color/0/set topic, but a nicely formatted json. Alas, the brightness_command_template is not allowed in the config. :frowning:

In the “LED Huiskamer 1-b” i can not switch off the device. Because off commands always go to the command_topic. But on/off and color/brightness have different topics in this bulb. (see the url mentioned above)

To remove confusion. I didn’t use these two configs at the same time. It’s just posted here as one.

How to properly setup this Shelly.Cloud bulb in HA ?

Kind regards in advance :slight_smile:

Hi, I have the same problem but I am no very experienced and still trying to find a way to turn it on and off. If you found something can you keep this discussion updated ?

Solved this yet? Any working setup for the Bulb?

I have adapted this to be able to manipulate the color, but can not get it to turn on and off… If you look at the RGBW2…the difference seems to be the ison vs turn and “on” and “off” having quotations… If you can figure that out I would be happy to know…

Just want to let you know I used your template and it works great. Thank you for posting this.

Thank you, had to come back and find this…and it the facebook link was struggling…

The template works great but it adds 2 entities for the same device in home assistant. Is it possible to make it only one entity with all the features?

Great thank you
