Control monitor bluelightlevel and brightness directly with DDC/CI protocol



  • These days many newer monitors can be reconfigured in software over the DDC/CI protocol.

    My AcerX34 has its own acer widget thing for controlling it, but that's not the only tool that works. It turns out to just be DDC/CI protocol since SoftMCCS can also control it.

    Using this protocol it is possible to set my monitor's "blue light level" control and "brightness" settings.

    Would flux ever be able to pin these controls to a 24-hour schedule?



  • We have had this built internally for a very long time.

    However, we believe it might destroy monitors, since some of them write settings to an EEPROM, which can only be written about 100,000 times. We are testing some at the moment actually, to see if this is true.
