Breaks transitions when turning lights on

See original GitHub issue

I’ve a few scripts that turn lights on with a transition, e.g.

service: light.turn_on
entity_id: light.living_space_lights
  brightness: 255
  transition: 900

(I have disabled the brightness adjustment in circadian lighting)

Unfortunately, the circadian lighting breaks the transition, since it immediately issues another light.turn_on call without a transition, which overrides the transition I just supplied.

Would it be possible for CL to detect whether the colortemp is already correct (based on the current state of the light) and if so not issuing another light.turn_on command?

That I could do pretty easily. I’ll have to think through if there would be any negative side effects but I’ll keep this open and add it to my list of enhancements.
