Macro to disable devices

Hi! Sometimes I need to disable devices such as my Phillips Hue bulb so that I can turn on my whites apart from Signal RGB. I would like a macro to disable any devices I have connected and also a macro to re-enable them.

I literally just came here to see if this was a feature that already existed and if not, create a request for this same thing! After yesterdays update to the software my Govee lights started working and it’s awesome… but I don’t want them synced all the time. If I’m just doing general stuff in my room I want them disabled (like just white for example) and then activated when I’m gaming and in sync with the profile that I’ve downloaded for a game. I instinctively went to see if I could set it up in the existing macros I have set to run when .exe files start and shutdown to toggle the device but that wasn’t found.

This would be an amazing addition!

We need to bump this request somehow. I don’t see how this would be a difficult feature to add.

Seems like it might be doable, but I don’t know from the programming standpoint. The night before I replied to you when I found this, I thought I had a way to make it work, but it didn’t. I went to may layouts and saved a layout with the device labeled “Disabled” and the original as “Enabled” - I didn’t change anything to the layout other than disabling the device. Then in my existing Macros for the exe files (For Example - Destiny2.exe) I added a step to set the layout to disabled, but it didn’t work. It seems that the layouts only apply the device locations etc… not the state. So close I think… but seems like something that would need to be implemented.

Yup I even remember trying that to but to no avail. :cry:

As others, I was literally coming here to suggest the same thing. For example, when I play STO I usually disable my keyboard so I can use the built in RBG schemes. Would be nice to make a macro to automatically do this when I launch the game.
