  1. Hi all, Hope everyone is safe and healthy. There is one thing that keeps bothering me and that is when I set up a custom routine on my account, my partner who also are at the same Google house hold can't seem to get those routines to work properly. Google keep saying that it don't know how to do that and so on when she (my partner) says the proper phrases. Do I have to set up my created routines on her account as well? Update: I went on the Google chat line and they told me that as we have voice match I have to manually enter my routines into my partners account. Problem solved! Best regards, //Peter
  2. Hey Brian, Of course, let me know if you need additional photage.
  3. Oh yes, I cut a hole in the carpet, cut the cord and threaded it thru the carpet then attached a new plug.
  4. Hi all, This is my do it yourself project I’ve been doing this Easter weekend. Picture this, you have been working hard the entire week and it is finally Friday evening and you and your partner have ordered Indian take out and are sitting down in the sofa ready to eat and watch an 80s classic movie in the movie room. Que the movie and a dark scene where you can’t see the hand in front of you because you have a completely blackened out movie room. What to do? You can’t eat because you can’t see the food in front of you and you can’t turn on the ceiling lights because that would put you right out of the movie and ruin the picture quality? Enter the down light underneath the table in front on the sofa, now you can see the food and you don’t ruin the picture! This is truly a DIY project using a Philips HUE light strip and the semi-transparent lid from an indoor cable list. The lid is naturally pressed against the three legs of the table and are hold in place with regular double-sided tape. The Philips HUE light strip is then attached to the inside of the lid and connected to a power strip that I securely drilled in place underneath the table. A fun and easy DIY that makes a world of difference in my movie room. Stay safe and have fun! //Peter
  5. I will, but now I have to get ready for bed. I'll translate the hex codes to hue colors tomorrow and get back to you.
  6. No, I cant select anything other then "which actuators" and there select lights.
  7. Hmmm, it seems that every Philips hue light is a switch according to Webcore. I tried to edit the script and every Hue light I have being it a RGB lamp, a RGB Lightstrip or RGB IRIS Lamp all shows up as a switch. My "emergency lamp" is a regular "Philips Hue White and Color Ambiance E14" lamp
  8. Hello, I did finally try to install the Piston and that worked out just fine. I added the import code into Webcore on the web and it did accept the script. How ever the piston do not work, when I try to turn it on in Smartthings it flashes white one time and then stays off.

  9. Hi, I want the lamp to change color every hour on the hour when the lamp is on. When the light is off and time passes an hour I do not want the lamp to turn on. Your thinking is good. That the Piston have an internal cycle even if the lamp is off so when the lamp is turned on the correct color for that hour is lit. This might be more complicated than I first thought.
