Hue "energize"?


#1

Hi,

I am trying to figure out how to map “Energize” onto one of the buttons. I can’t seem to be able to do this. I do have it in the drop down menu, but when I try to trigger is it doesn’t seem to execute.

When I look at “scenes” that are preconfigured in the app (mac) it does not have an “energize” option, just “early evening” and “late evening”, but nothing like “morning” or similar.

I did try to map the “energize” option to “early evening” but as said above, it’s not executing.

Is there a way to configure this?

I’ve had a similar experience with Hue scene selection, some seem to work but not others.

You’re both on the Mac, right? I built an action called “Trigger Scene” on iOS and I just tested it and it works well with Energize. But I also tested Energize on the Mac and it also worked fine.

I’m not sure what to try next, as it works for me on both platforms. I will however get Trigger Scene added as an action on the Mac app.

Oh, here’s a good question to ask. How many Hue bulbs do you have and in how many rooms?

Hi Samuel,

I have 6 bulbs and one light strip in 5 rooms.

And yes, I am on the Mac.

2 rooms, each with one bulb each, and yes, Mac!

What is the room selection for when you try to use energize? Can you try switching it and seeing what works?

I am trying to activate all rooms. With the App v2 Hue changed the “wake up” light to something more yellowish and I am trying to just switch it to “Energize” early in the morning.

You have “All Rooms” selected? Does it work if you select individual rooms?
