I have this odd issue with one of my four LIFX bulbs. First up everything worked perfect, until I discovered that my scenes was not loading correct, looking in the HA log I found that it was one of the LIFX bulbs which HA had issue with, the name contains two underscore and part of the initial name, which could look like hex. Anyway i commented out this LIFX bulbs from ‘scene.yaml’ and the errors was gone, and the rest of the scenes was loaded perfect too…
Now to my issue:
I had already renamed the LIFX bulb in the LIFX app and restarted the bulb several times. In a effort of trying to rename the bulb, I tried reseting it completely, however once it returns back into HA, it gets it’s initial name, with this odd hex.
So does any of you know how to rename a LIFX bulb in HA, or force the name from the LIFX App through HA?
LIFX bulb in HA (now, which causes the issue with the scenes.yaml)
Name of the LIFX bulb in LIFX iOS App
LIFX MH Lille
I might add that all the other four LIFX apps gets the “correct” name also used in the LIFX iOS App and LIFX Cloud, so I don’t know why this LIFX bulbs won’t get renamed. I have tried renaming it anything, but in HA it keeps this odd name.
Hope some of you have a trick or some suggestions, as I would every much like to use this bulbs in scenes
