Hi, I have been trying to create a new smart scene whereby different light bulbs have different white temperatures. This was very easy and intuitive prior to v.3 of the app. Now I can only switch on/off OR choose the color temperature OR adjust the brightness. Please bring back the ability to set ALL OF THESE in one go (this is by no means a new feature request as my previous, saved scenes still work fine. It's only new scences that have issues as the v.3 interface does not allow the same level of customization). Thank you!

  @monomaniacalist,

I think the feature you are looking for may be under the set lighting option under the control devices section when creating a smart action. This option lets you select either the temperature of white or color; along with providing a slider for the brightness of the light.

 

The individual controls may be of more use when creating automation based on sensors, cameras or motion.

  @Riley_S Thank you for your suggestion Riley. In you photo, I suppose it is for a color bulb like LB130 (which I also have). So color bulbs are perfectly fine as I can use the "Mode" section to choose the desired color and temperature. However, such option has been REMOVED for non-color bulbs such as LB110 (see the attached photos for comparison). Any guidance you can give will be much appreciated!

  @monomaniacalist,

The only thing that I can think of is to use presets that include brightness for now. You could also use a scene to set the lights to what you are looking and for, and triggering the scene from the actions. I am already passing your feedback along to the development team about the feature not being present on non-rgb bulbs, as I would have assumed that the lighting controls for the white temperature would be the same between all bulbs.

  @Riley_S Thank you for your quick reply. It works with presets, but not with Scenes (which is exactly what I am trying to create). The last attached photo was taken from settings of a non-RGB bulb inside Scenes. If I go to settings of the non-RGB bulb through Home, everything works like how it used to.
