Any advice would be much appreciated. I solved my problem for now by stacking the triggers using extra hidden elements (1 for each bulb) and 2 bridges, alternating commands so they don't get overwhelmed. In other words,
Bridge A turn off spotlight 1
Bridge B turn off spotlight 2
Bridge A turn off spotlight 3
Bridge B turn off spotlight 4
This continues for all 8 bulbs. I know that I can probably create a group through the Hue bridge, but I don't have the ability to write the code that I would need. For now, this seems to be working, but I would love some further advice.
