Had this problem myself and looked through all the posts on this subject.
In the end I found a really straight forward solution (at least it worked for me)
Most of my bulbs are RGBWW so I did the following;
- Go to configuration > customisations
- Find the light you want to amend
- Check the Supported_features setting (it’s probably 2)
- For my bulbs to support all features I updated to 63
To figure this number out, look at the features list below and add up the numbers for the features you have,
SUPPORT_BRIGHTNESS = 1
SUPPORT_COLOR_TEMP = 2
SUPPORT_EFFECT = 4
SUPPORT_FLASH = 8
SUPPORT_COLOR = 16
SUPPORT_TRANSITION = 32
SUPPORT_WHITE_VALUE = 128
It doesn’t resolve the issue of the current status being reported but at least I can control all the features.
Now if only I could get HomeKit to play nicely with this setting (it refuses to send the correct white value and just mixes RGB) I would be home free.
