f.lux makes my Hue Dimmer Switch ineffective

  • Hello everyone,

    In response to my original post Dimming Hue lights with f.lux controls, I can tell for sure that f.lux forces the brightness of my Hue light system in addition to the color temperature.
    This of course disables the possibility to control the brightness from an other controller because f.lux send the orders every 5 seconds or so... and immediately overrides the setting from my Hue Dimmer Switch.

    Can the f.lux developers consider a way to send only the color temperature to the smart lighting system, instead of brightness + color?


  • @Just1M This has sadly been a feature request for a looooooooooooooong time. I posted something similar over a year ago in this forum, still nothing. Somehow I think they've either stopped working on it or don't feel like adding it. It's why I stopped using f.lux and just went with the built in Windows 10 night light, was just simpler and since the main feature I wanted doesn't exist anyway I decided to ditch the extra software.
