Animus Heart?

No color, Trådfri RGB E27 via HUE

I have a couple of Trådfri RGB E27 lights. I have paired them with a HUE brige that I control with :animusheart:.

The problem is that when they have been turned off for a couple of hours I can’t activate colors via :animusheart:. Not before I first chance the color in the HUE app then I can change the color via :animusheart:. If the lights have been turned off for a while, what ever settings i change in :animusheart: for any of them lights, I can only turn them on and off and change dimming, they will not show any color, only white.

Is it a Trådfri problem (I do not think so, function well with HUE app) or is it a :animusheart: problem?


I would initially suspect the Trådfri bulbs firmaware… I have a few Trådfri RGB E27 bulbs myself, and they work just fine, no workarounds needed. Have you tried to update the firmware of the bulbs? You’ll need a Trådfri GW or ask in your local IKEA store for help with it (I’ve heard they should help with this, never tried it myself)

What firmware do you have in your Trådfri bulbs? I don’t have any Trådfri GW and if my bulbs are upp to date I do not need to go to IKEA.

firmware running in these are 1.3.009


…blir nog ett besök till IKEA.

Trevligt att höra! Finns ju så mycket som kan gå fel/krångla :slight_smile:


I have 2 of these running 1.3.002 firmware.
Both is working perfect in Hue but 1 is showing up as white bulb in the Heart.

Is it Trådfri firware upgrade to fix this to?


I did have firmware 1.3.002 and had some problem. After a couple of hours with the bulb turned off, if I tried to turn it on via my :animusheart:, it only was white, no color. In the :animusheart: GUI it still looked like it was a color bulb but I was not able to set or change color, if I via HUE-app changed color, I then was able to set and change color via :animusheart:.

So, maybe it will help you if you update the firmware.
