F.lux dedicated machine



  • Hi all, first off thanks for fighting the good fight and making such a great and needed program. I currently use it on all my machines and to control my hue lights around the house. I use an iOS app that sets on and off timers for the bulbs and fades then on slowly. It's a great sun/moon simulation. I've even removed my aquarium light and give the fish a more natural day as well. My problem is that I need to leave a computer running 24/7 365 to get this to work properly. Not an ideal situation. I'm not Linux versed, but I feel there must be a better way. I'm hoping there is a way I can install f.lux as an app on a synology nas or on a raspberry pi that can run 24/7 with a much smaller footprint. Thanks again!



  • 'm a bit obsessed with sleep and productivity at the moment and I'm wondering if it is possible to set up a smart light system to replicate what F.Lux does for your computer screen without the assistance of a raspberry pi. In other words, is it possible to set my lights up to do the following every evening:

    At sunset remove blue from light / increase the orange

    Decrease brightness up until bedtime but not to turn off completely until I decide to go to bed

    To repeat every day without me having to change the start time i.e. automatically adjusts to sunset time throughout the year

    Starts automatically when I turn lights on at the switch after sunset but adjusts according to the time the lights are switched on i.e. if the sunset was at 6PM and I turn my lights on at 8PM the brightness and colour of the light will assume the colour set for 8PM as if the lights had been on since 6PM
