NOOB: Smart bulb won't turn off every other throw of the UI toggle

I just finished my first install of HA on rPi and have a Linear LB60Z-1 connected and a few feet away from my Z-stick.

In my naive perfect world this would come up working right out the box :slight_smile: But what happens in the UI is:

  1. UI Bulb Switch: off, UI Bulb Icon: off, Actual Bulb: off
  2. UI Bulb Switch: on, UI Bulb Icon: on, Actual Bulb: on (as it should be)
  3. UI Bulb Switch: off, UI Bulb Icon: on, Actual Bulb: off (dimmed gradually to off, or very dim?)
  4. UI Bulb Switch: on, UI Bulb Icon: stays on, Actual Bulb: stays off
  5. UI Bulb Switch: off, UI Bulb Icon: off, Actual Bulb: off
  6. UI Bulb Switch: on, UI Bulb Icon: on, Actual Bulb: on (as it should be)

Here is the State configuration:

I am sure this is something noobish on my part. Btw, I am using the default polling time in configuration.yaml.

Any clues would be welcomed.
