I expressed this wish to Hue inventor George Yianni quite a while ago, and now my three Christmas fairy lights in the garden have reminded me again: Why does the light actually look the same every evening?
This is how Philips Hue currently works: You switch on the light, such as the Hue Festavia in the garden, automatically. The same scene is activated day after day and the light always looks the same. This is despite the fact that there are so many options and different scenes.
Of course, you could set up a separate automation with a different scene for each day. However, this would lead to an unsurprising result and also put an unnecessary strain on the resources of the Hue Bridge.
I have the following suggestion: Why can't you simply select more than one scene when creating an automation? The automation could then activate a random scene every time it is started and thus provide a bit of variety.
