HUE on with transitionTime

i start my outdoor lights with a transitionTime when it goes dark.
but every the group start's with a brightness level of 100% and then start with dimming up from 0%-100%
why ?
How can i disable this?
my Script looks like:

let newPayload = {}
newPayload.brightness = 100;
newPayload.on = true;
newPayload.transitionTime = 900;
msg.payload = newPayload
return msg;

thanks for help

Did you find a solution?

Not yet..

It's seem to be an "error" with Hue lamp. You have to first define the first step (brightness 1%) and then start the transition.

I just create a flow that works, just edit the function and change the duration "1", and state "on off" in my example

var duration = 1 * 60;
    var msg1 = { payload: {
        "on": true,
        "brightness": 1 }}; // lowest brightness
    var msg2 = { payload: {
        "brightness": 100,
        "transitionTime": duration }};
    return [msg1, msg2];

Here the full flow:

Hey. Thanks i wil try it :slight_smile:

But you can set the brightness onyl when the bulb is on.
So at first on=true and then brightness=1, but when you set the bulb on, it switchs of the last state (eq. 100%) and second to the brightness of 1%

Hope you understand my post :slight_smile:

Your speak french no? Maybe we can switch in french as we are only you and me speaking in this post.

Anyway, I think you're right. This morning i used this function on 2 room. And in one of them the ligth turn 100% with no transition. In the other room, it was working well.

I will check history of each light

German :upside_down_face:
i think english will be ok...
thanks for checking

do you found a solution?

I increase the delay to 10s before start increasing the light.

which delay?
between on/brightness=1 and increasing ?

Exactly. I increased the delay to 10 secondes

i will try...

but i don't understand why only 1 bulb (of 3 in the group) won't dimm up?!
the command for on and dimm, i send to the group not to all the bulb's.

so i think the hue bridge send's out 3 times the same command, not one command for the group.

i think it's working!

thanks a lot!
