Another vote in support of Lifx coordination. My family loves the app on our devices but we have to change Lifx lights with the app or via Google Home to match manually. -- Yes basically the same as dasneal, (stolen from him.)
its pretty hacky but it works for me (i tried it on xampp for windows but its currently running on a ubuntu apache + php 7)
you will need to fine tune the variables to the maximum values that your light will support or you can send the raw values from flux to mqtt and handle it from homeassistant or whatever it is you are using...
Hmmm, it appears I may have spoken too soon... Daytime seemed fine, but now that it's getting into the evening I see that the brightness is decreasing alongside colour temp :-| Still better than before, but I'll definitely be hopping on the newest version as soon as it's available! I bought the Hue lights because I just discovered f.lux (yeah, i'm a bit behind the times) and saw it had this ability; can't wait for it to be fully functional
Cheers, and thanks for creating this software!
@aeonflux Did you make sure to completely exit flux before updating the registry? I made that mistake a couple times and found that flux kept overwriting the default values if it was open in the tasktray. What I did was:
@herf I think I might have done a bad job explaining myself. I was asking if it was possible for you guys or maybe someone from the community to create a modified version of the Philips hue firmware where f.lux software would intervene when the user requests a blank white value. That way, f.lux software wouldn't fight for priority with other home automation services.
Sorry to necro, but in case anyone else has the same problem as OP, because I have a fix--
What is your keyboard layout? Are you using a non-English keyboard? I occasionally have the same problem while using a custom keyboard layout (which I designed in MSKLC to work for multiple languages). I don't believe I've had issues while using a US English or German keyboard, but I haven't been keeping track up to now and I switch often.
After I switch to another layout and switch back to my custom keyboard it works again, so I'm not sure exactly what the issue could be. Just something to try if the hotkeys stop working!
