I’ve been busy migrating my HUE Zigbee lamps to HA via Zigbee2Mqtt and I basically want to mimic my previous HUE setup. While setting everything up I found out that the transitions work a bit differently when turning on a lamp. I did some research and I’m quite confident the issue lies in HA’s way of transitioning.
What the heck explanation:
- I have a scene which (for this example) turn the lamps to a green color with a transition of 1,5s
- I turn off the scene/light
- I turn on a different scene which turns the lights to white with a transition of 1.5s
The weird thing is that at step 3 the lights turn on starting with green then transition to white. I would have expected it to turn on dimmed white and then transition to bright white.
I think it can be solved by first change the color of the lamp before turning it on for the transition.
