How come that I can’t change the light colour of a group in Alexa?
Individually, yes, but not for two lights.
I’ve got two lights in a group in our livingroom. Alexa only allows me to switch them on or off, not changing colour.
As stated above, Alexa does allow me to change the colour for one of the bulbs, just not a group.

Are they the same type of lamps? I have issues with a mix of ewelink and magichome LED devices in a group not doing colour, but ewelink switches and tuyasmart lamps in a group will change all the tuyasmart lamps when I ask. Add an ewelink lamp to the group and suddenly no, wont do it.

As above, are they the same brand of bulb? Can you change ALL the colours in the group individually? Do the bulbs have their own unique names? Maybe delete the bulbs an re-connect them?


I have two colour Hue bulbs in a group, and Alexa will set the colour/brightness on those as a group (or individually).
