Phillips hue - light not reachable but looks active


Prominent Member
After adding some more hue bulbs I have noticed that if one is manually turned off, it still looks like it is active in the app. The only way to tell is to got into light setup and then it shows the bulb as unreachable.

Surely it should show on the main screen that the bulb is not reachable?

The main screen shows the rooms though. While some might have a single bulb some like my kitchen might have 16 lights.

It does slightly annoy me in the one room that I have this issue with, which is out office/spare bedroom, it's the only room that has an easily accessible physical light switch. When it's powered off it sometimes shows in the app as being on.
