Hello Phoscon Team,
This problem has been going around the GIT repo and this forum since 2019, but there seems to be no solution. I am having problems controlling IKEA lamps reasonably with my ConBee II. I am currently trying the setup with two IKEA Floalt ceiling panels and a TRÅDFRI remote control (5 button remote). The colour temperature for the two Floalt ceiling panels can be set and saved in Phoscon (Group created → Lamps added → Scene created), but is then reset to a different value by a Scene change (whether TRÅDFRI remote or on the Home Assistant Dashboard). Specifically, I can set the lamps between 2200 K and 4000 K. If I save a scene with 4000 K as the colour temperature, however, the scene is then reset to a colour temperature of approx. 3200 K when I select it. It looks like the maximum range for the colour temperature only allows 1000 K (2200-3200). I can manually set the group to 4000 K in the Phoscon app, but I can’t get this value to be saved permanently.
Furthermore, the colour temperature cannot be controlled via TRÅDFRI remote. I manage to move towards “warm light” but never towards “cold light”.
I have many IKEA lamps in my home and I am a bit disappointed that this problem has existed for years and no proper solution is provided. IKEA is not an exotic supplier now and I am considering returning my ConBee II as I can only control IKEA lamps inadequately.
Is there perhaps a way to customise the configuration file for the group directly at file level? Then I could take a look at the values and understand what is going wrong here when saving.
