  • Philips Hue updates state time even without a state change

    Hi Wim,

    How do I keep my Hue bulbs from updating a state change in HS3 even when there is no change. I would normally try to turn off polling, but can't find a polling section. And I have checked off the "Do not update" checkbox already.

    Jim,

    Can you explain which devices are updating without a change? Are you seeing the group devices change maybe? As these will change based on the members in that group. If all members of the group are on, the group device will be on also. Or if a color bulb in that group changes color, the color value for the group are changed also.

    Also, if your bulb is in a colorloop, the hue or/and sat device might change as will based on the color.

    Thanks,

    Wim

      Wim,

      It now hasn't happened in awhile. Maybe it was something I did. If I see it again, I'll re-visit this thread

        It appears to have happened with these entries in log:
        Jan-20 4:45:03 AM JowiHue Recovering light DR South
        Jan-20 4:44:55 AM JowiHue Recovering light Office Back Right
        Jan-20 4:44:49 AM JowiHue Recovering light DR East

        Does it need to change state on recovery?

          Jim,

          Recovery only is performed when a bulb becomes reachable again after the start of being unreachable. That by definition changes the state as the plugin then will sent the last know values again.

          Is this after putting power back on the bulbs? Or is the bulb unreachable as in lost signal to the bridge?

              Also, is there a way to force an update on Philipps Hue? I have auto update enabled but it always shows update available. I click it and it hangs on this screen for hours!

                Jim,

                As for the update, it is taking a long time. Philips is busy updating all their lights for the entertainment options that are coming. For me I had it running all night before it ended.

                The other issue, bulbs being unreachable on regular basis might also be in the way of finisning the update btw.
                If you do not need the lights to be recovered after being unreachable, just disable the recovery option in the properties/JowiHue tab of the device. Then the plugin will let the device stay as it was after becoming reachable.

                You might also want to look to the reasons behing the lights becoming unreachable? Is there interference in the neighbourhood of the bulbs or bridge? A wifi router, using a channel near the philips bridge channel, or the distance between bulbs more then 7 meters might cause issues there maybe?

                Thanks,

                Wim
