Your flow doesn't appear to contain anything where you are trying to set a colour.
Have you read the ReadMe for the node you are using ( see

It contains the details of the many different ways you can change a bulb to red
which include sending msg.payload.color = red;

See documentation.

Also note that you can select the node itself and in the "info" panel, lots of information is given how to do this.

I saw the documentation and saw the info, but the question is where do i put the lines of brightness and color change? In the particulairy flow, in what section do i have to put this...

In a message that is sent to the node it suggests. You can create the message in a function node or a change node

I figured it out using a function node Thanx !!!!

Brightness is done... But now struggeling with the color... The color wont change to blue.. What do i wrong ?


return msg;

Read the documentation. in your example blue is value and not a string.

HINT: Ask yourself, how do I send a string?

People have a lot of attitude in this forum heh?

Hi @fnees, welcome to the forum,

forgive me, but that isnt really a great first post :confused:

Sometimes people get frustrated (me included) and write things that might seem like "attitude" but I can tell you this much, I dont think I have ever been a member of a more helpful forum. Ever.

The amount of time some of the regulars put in helping out folk who either dont RTM or dont bother to try themselves is outstanding. Take a look for yourself, I would guess that 99% of the threads are responded to with either a solution or a hint, without a sniff of attitude.

When you yourself have and issue and start a thread, you will find the people here are truly amazing.

Also, i must point out, that sometimes this "attitude" is merely a thinly veiled attempt at pushing the OP to look into things for themselves (its the best way to really learn)


How did you get the brightness done? Can you share the flow, please?
