#76474 I dont know if someone else has or had problems with the accessory entry in the config.json file, but I had:
I had to insert
Code: Select all"service": "Light",
under
Code: Select all"name": "Single Color Light",
. Otherwise Homekit would show the strip as "Not supported".
Also for a correct RGBW Output I had to insert
Code: Select all "brightness": true
in the "color" property.
Otherwise I couldnt set any White color in homekit.

#78540 Hi!

I love this tutorial and I almost have it up and running. There is only one problem, when i change the Brightness in the home app the color of the LEDstrip turns blue. when i select a color of my choice and i turn up the Brightness to 100% the color wil turn into green (verry low brightness)

I have no clue what this could be,

Greetings,

Willem
