Changing the brightness of Hue lights without turning them on

Cupertino, January 31, 2021

I just bought a pack of 3 colored lights to upgrade and expand from the one I had and to use my roommate Hue bridge. With LIFX we created automations using the Apple Home and Home + 4 application by Matthias Hochgatterer to create harsh scenes of adaptive lighting. I want to do something similar to Hue lights, but it doesn't work the same way. Using Home + 4, we had automations and scenes that would only change the brightness and color of the LIFX bulb. The light would change if the bulb is on or off and will turn on at the correct settings. It is essentially a daily reset, regardless of the light settings the night before, and the light does not turn on when the new settings are applied. Hue bulbs will not do this. I want Hue lights to reset to adaptive lighting and 100% brightness every morning, no matter how and when the light is turned on for the first day and only changed for the first time they are turned on, so that it can be changed again throughout the day I have a few other ideas for automation as a solution, but so far all have had some drawbacks from how I had the LIFX configuration. Have Hue lights ever worked in HomeKit as I described? Could HomeBridge do that? I hate how close this is to an interruption of transactions for Hue lights, especially with how many problems LIFX has had. Maybe it would work with Nanoleaf Essentials, has anyone tried something like that with them? If it works, I could give up Hue for them for the time being. Edit: I also noticed that if you change the color using the Home app while the light is off, then restart it, the Home app will display the new color, but the bulb will not. WITH SMALLER, the new color selected is Adaptive Lighting, so can Adaptive Lighting cause problems?
