What I would like is a lightbulb that when I turn it on during office hours, it’s a bright white light. And when I turn it on at any other time it’s a dim warm light. I’d like to continue using the wall switch to control if the light is on or off.
I don’t want to use Siri or Alexa or have the bulb turn itself on/off when either it thinks I’m in the room or based on a schedule of when I might be in the room. I’d just like to use the light switch.
I have a hive central heating system. A couple of days ago, I got one of their cool to warm smart lights: https://www.hivehome.com/products/hive-active-light-cool-to-warm-white
I set a schedule for the brightness and colour I wanted through the day.
However unfortunately it doesn’t do what I want. If you’re turning it on and off using the light switch, it completely ignores the schedule (until the next change in schedule) - it defaults to 100% brightness and whatever the last colour temperature was.
Does anyone make a lightbulb that supports my use case? Going on various product manufacturers websites, it’s not immediately obvious if any do.
