flux switch platform will change the temperature of your lights similar to the way flux works on your computer, using circadian rhythm. They will be bright during the day, and gradually fade to a red/orange at night. The
flux switch restores its last state after startup.
The integration will update your lights based on the time of day. It will only affect lights that are turned on and listed in the flux configuration.
During the day (in between
start time and
sunset time), it will fade the lights from the
start_colortemp to the
sunset_colortemp. After sunset (between
stop_time), the lights will fade from the
sunset_colortemp to the
stop_colortemp. If the lights are still on after the
stop_time it will continue to change the light to the
stop_colortemp until the light is turned off. The fade effect is created by updating the lights periodically.
The color temperature is specified kelvin, and accepted values are between 1000 and 40000 kelvin. Lower values will seem more red, while higher will look more white.
If you want to update at variable intervals, you can leave the switch turned off and use automation rules that call the service
switch.<name>_update whenever you want the lights updated, where
<name> equals the
name: property in the switch configuration.
To use the Flux switch in your installation, add the following to your
# Example configuration.yaml entry switch: - platform: flux lights: - light.desk - light.lamp
Constant brightness of the lights. Besides color temperature, brightness is also adjusted unless a value is specified here.
If true, brightness will not be adjusted, only color temperature.
Select how color temperature is passed to lights. Valid values are
Transition time in seconds for the light changes (high values may not be supported by all light models).
