Not Easy to handle the RGB colors in Domoticz

Post by kimhav » Friday 24 August 2018 10:13

Couple of weeks ago I got myself some Philips Hue RGBWW bulbs and I have to say that it's really fun how one can play around and set the mood in a room and as well extremely high [urlhttps://sv.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wife_acceptance_factor]WAF[/url] as well. But, when it comes to set the colors in Domoticz it's not that easy and while a think it's great that it actually shows that I can play around with 16 millions colors it actually becomes less usable with the current color wheel. What I'm missing would either be able to edit the RGB values directly using either number or slides as the current way is a bit hard:

Or what I actually like is how the Domoticz Android app does as it make use of less colors and with that it makes it easier to find the color one is looking for:

(Check reply for the missing image which the forum keeps removing...)

So if both RGB values could be directly edited and together with a simplified color wheel that would be really great.

Also on the topic it would be really cool if the color settings could be saved as a color profile and to be re-used quickly with other scenes, groups and lamps.

This is how the Domoticz Android app presents the color wheel; a bit easier to quickly find the color one is seeking for:
