Christmas Naughty and Nice box lighting effect

You can use the Effect Creator to do what you want. In Hue Essentials, first open a room/group/zone, and then go to the third tab (lightning icon) at the top. Tap the + button to open the Effect Creator. See for more information: How to use the Effect Creator?

Follow these steps to do what you want:

First create 2 scenes:
Scene 1: Light A on (100% brightness red), light B off
Scene 2: Light A off, light B on (100% brightness green).

Then create an effect:

  1. Keep the advanced settings on the defaults except for the following:
    • Disable the setting “Switch on lights when started”
    • Disable the setting “Restore light state when finished”
    • Enable the setting “I want to set brightness per frame”
    • Enable the setting “Toggle light states in frames”
  2. Add the scenes A and B after one another and set a delay between them. Repeat this for how many times you want the lights to alternate. Remember to add the “green” scene as last so it ends on green.
  3. Disable the repeat option.
  4. Tap the Save button.
