The Hue beyond starts in a white color setting when I use the main switch, is this normal?

If you want to have all the benefits of Hue lighting, such as dimming and changing the color temperature of the light, you need to use a Hue bridge. You can use the Hue phoenix without a Hue bridge to turn the light on or off. The Hue bridge can either be aquired via a starter set or bought seperately. You can check on meethue.com for retailers in your neighborhood where you can buy a Hue starter set or seperate hue bridge.
