Power-on behavior

This device allows you to set the power-on behavior. Note that this requires at least November/December '18 firmware update of the device. Send a MQTT command to zigbee2mqtt/FRIENDLY_NAME/setopen in new window with the following payload.

    "hue_power_on_behavior": "on",          // default, on, off, recover
    "hue_power_on_brightness": 125,         // same values as brightness
    "hue_power_on_color_temperature": 280,  // same values as color_temp
    "hue_power_on_color": "#0000FF"         // color in hex notation, e.g. #0000FF = blue

  • hue_power_on_behavior value always has to be provided
  • hue_power_on_brightness, hue_power_on_color_temperature and hue_power_on_color can only be provided when hue_power_on_behavior = on
  • hue_power_on_color_temperature and hue_power_on_color cannot be provided together, only one can be set
  • When setting hue_power_on_behavior = on, any not provided values will be reset to their factory defaults

Note: if hue_power_on_behavior is set to off, then the only way to turn the bulb on will be through a paired smart device (see pairing above). You will NOT be able to turn the bulb on by sequentially switching power on and off.
