I have setup a few scenes like “Watch Apple TV” that darken the room and set one of my Hue Strips to a specific brightness like 11%.
I then setup a trigger to look for that and start an Activity that turns on the projector, receiver, etc.
I changed the scene, the Hue strip changed to the correct brightness. But, the activity didn’t fire. I was playing around for about 10 minutes, trying different HomeKit tech (same thing on Insteon dimmers). Went back to the Hue and poof - it started working!
For about 20 min, and then it stopped. Deleted and recreated the activity and started working again. Today I come home and try it again and it didn’t work, and now I can’t get it to work.
I have the Simple Control TV hub running on a dedicated Apple TV, app is connected to it just fine. I have these activities set to run on Hub as well.
Not sure what to do or what I am missing. Was amazing to say “Hey Siri, watch AppleTV” to my HomePod and everything happened.
Btw - would it be possible for the hub to just detect a scene change rather than a Light? Would be nice not to pick a specific brightness. Not sure if that is possible with HomeKit.
