Hue lamp sets color instead of just turning on

The remote not just turns the Hue lamp on but sets a color and brightness. Why? Switching on and off must just turn the light on and off without changing brightness or color!

If I use Home kit for that or Philips hue app, everything is ok. Your remote ruins all previous light settings. Even Webhooks work correctly but not the remote itself.

  • Hi Oleksiy Yudin thanks for sharing this. Is your light part of a Home Scene or is this happening on the Hue light individual on/off interface?

    • Anne-Sophie F. Both - individual and grouped lights - the same result. 

      Example: I set the color and brightness via Home kit app or via Philips hue app and switch them off. When I switch them on again from the remote, they have other color and brightness which are (pre-)set on the remote. But they should just switch on without changing settings.
