Quick question. Is there a way to make sure that when a group of lights is turned on, it is turned on with a certain brightness/color? Kind of like a scene, except the tricky part is that I want to integrate this with haaska. I want to say "Alexa, turn on the couch lights" or "Alexa, turn off the couch lights". And since I can't turn off scenes with haaska, I'm baffled on how to pull this off. Ideas?

I use a group to do that. I usually don't use scenes at all because they require something like, Alexa turn on Whatever Scene
so use a group and you can just say the name of whatever it is

@devdelay That's where I started, except I'm using Phillips Hue lights. So if the light was in a different color or dull brightness, it would come back on in that state instead of the default brightness/color. Does that make sense?

I don't know I don't have Phillips Hue

I'm getting this when I type "make test"
when i visit https://x.duckdns.org/api/states in chrome, I get this: {"result": "error", "message": "401: Unauthorized"}
This used to work. the only difference between then and now (if I remember correctly) is me updating HA to the latest version (0.22)

perhaps my let's encrypt certificate has expired.
