The Elgato Lights sets the bar for high-end studio lightning. The LED lights are created and designed specifically for streamers and content creators, many of whom operate on platforms like YouTube and Twitch.

The following light productions from Elgato have been tested with this integration:

Configuration

Adding Elgato Light to your Home Assistant instance can be done via the user interface, by using this My button:

Elgato Light can be auto-discovered by Home Assistant. If an instance was found, it will be shown as “Discovered”, which you can select to set it up right away.

Manual configuration steps

This integration adds the Key Light device as a light in Home Assistant, and allows you to control the color temperature, brightness, and its on/off state.

When using the Elgato Light Strip, color support is automatically detected and enabled in Home Assistant.

Services

Service elgato.identify

The identify service shortly blinks the Elgato light. Originally meant as a way to identify which light you are talking to; it can also be used as a service to create a visual notification.

This service also works when the light is turned off and will turn off the light after the identification sequence has been completed.
