it would be nice to know the names of certain color temps. You can say turn kitchen to white or red,blue, fuchsia etc.... but what is the list of names for whites? I’d like to know what 2700k is 3000k, 4100k, 5000 and 8000.
Does anybody have a list of all the colors Siri supports? I just figured out fuchsia is a better pink jusy thinking of color names but no idea about whites.

For everyday lighting I use:
White (a cold white)
Halogen (crisp, but not cold white)
Peach (warm and bright)
Champagne (a bit warmer and still bright)
Topaz (warm and dimmer)
Flourescent (colder than just “white” on its own)
Incandescent (warm and orangey)
Candle (darker/warmer than incandescent)

Thanks for that list.
I'd seen halogen, and use "candlelight" fairly often

most of the time, i use 2 scenes "warm white" and "daylight" for all the lights.
set the lights up in the Hue app,
then when you create the scene and add the lights in the home app, they pull their current state into the scene.

sadly, that leads to a multi step process sometimes
"warm white" then "turn off all lights" then "turn on the couch lamp"
to get one light on in the proper color.

Just discovered you can ask Siri what color a light is and she’ll tell you the name. Cool.
pretty cool didn't know that
[doublepost=1545219020][/doublepost]I just ended up making a scene for what I want to call each color temp for each light or sets of lights and works good. I have basically a hundred scenes now but its ok.
