Colour jumping A60

When I fade white to red the colour changes smoothly for most of the transition, only to suddenly change -or jump- colour towards the red colour. Is there anything that can be done to enable a gradual colour change all the way through?

Hello,

Unfortunately that’s entirely in firmware, so it can’t be influenced via the LAN API.

This is the case with the Mini Color as well and it can be really annoying. I would suggest to the firmware team to look into this and in a future update the LEDs responsible for the different colors slowly increase their brightness during transitions instead of just turning on suddenly. This would make the transition to look smoother. It would definitely be a great addition to the LAN API as well :slightly_smiling_face:

I’ll be sure to mention this to them :slight_smile:

Following from MrMangoo’s comment it would also be useful if the dimmest could be 0.1% or 0.01% for all LEDs within the bulb.

I totally agree with this as well; the dimmest value currently is too bright to use the bulbs as nightlights.
