What shows in the Hue driver event log when you send the command?

Hi Dave,

I tried the same command but for a different light this time a Lightstrip Plus model # LST002 and the command worked fine.

After doing a little looking around I found the Hue plugin is not discovering the following:

Hue color spot Model Number LCT003
Hue ambiance lamp Model Number LTW015
Hue ambiance down light Model Number LTD005

If I put the lights into groups I can control them off and on but no other features.

Log is attached.

The driver has been updated to support those missing bulb types.

I see what is happening. You're trying to change the color temperature of the bulb using the Color command. The Color command is only valid for setting colors for RGB (HSB) bulbs. I'm going to have to add a new command called ColorTemp that will allow you to set the color temperature correctly.

Driver updated again. There is a new ColorTemp command now, Lighting|<<id>>~ColorTemp~Temp (where temp is 137 .. 500)

I do not have any bulbs that support changing color temp so you'll have to let me know if it works.
