If you have installed the node and attached a debug node what do you see in the debug?

Is your question that you want to see true/false?
Or is that what you see and you want to know if that is correct?

hi.
the debug look like this.
{"on":false,"brightness":0,"updated":"2019-01-23T16:35:20+01:00"}

and I wonder if i can do so that the its 1 or 0, or true or false,

I hope you understand what I mean :slight_smile:

Not exactly. What do you want to be 1 or 0 or true or false?
What node is that debug coming from? Possibly node-red-contrib-something, that you may have installed.

So with a change node, you should be able to define rules so that when msg.payload.on = false you can change msg.payload to msg.payload=false
and
msg.payload.on=true msg.payload=true

I am not sure what the question is, but if you want to turn it on you need to send some parameters as documented in the info window.

What I use in a function node (albeit with dynamic values):

return {payload:{"on":true,"brightness":100, "transitionTime":3, hex: "FFA500"}}
