I have a hue lamp that I switch off the power via an old twilight relay (not smart).
I see in the Hue app that the lamp is not in contact when the relay is off and when it is on, it is contactable.
When the power is cut, the lamp is on and when it is lit it is on. So no status change on the lamp via any flow. Only remember what it was when the power was cut and when the power is back.
So i need a flow that gets me a notification when the power i back . There is no power current or volt value from the lamp only the status on and dimming value. Which never changes.
Is there any flow that can make this notification?

this link does not help me get a note when the power is back to the lamp. or I miss something
What do you want to do in the flow?
The “power up behaviour” is the only thing you can really change.
As described in the other thread: you are using a smart bulb in a way that is is not intended to be used.
So the trigger you are looking for is not available…
Right solution wouls be:
Keep the hue on constant power (do not put it behind the switch)
If you need the switch: replace it by a smart switch (many solution in this forum, when you search on switch)
I’m facing a similar problem.
I did not try yet but I’m thinking to use an advanced flow, and to use the error output on the turn-on or turn-off to know if the device is offline.
If I want to be sure that this test does not turn on or off the light during the test, I could firstly check the current light state (on or off) and try to re-turn it on or off depending on that, and checking the error.
