SETTING the COLOURS TO USE



  • I was wondering if it is possible to select the actual colours used through out the day, I am using f.lux with philips hue and i would like to have a tinge more blue added into the daytime mode, than what is currently used. Is this a possible feature? Also the night time setting is actually a bit dim.



  • Is your daytime setting set to 6500K?

    What is your nighttime color temperature set to? If it's too warm, then set it to a higher number for a cooler color temperature.



  • You're correct, but seriously, these bulbs go to probably as low as 90 lumens if you want to go by what I think.

    It may even be less, seriously I'm not joking.
    While I LOVE how dim they get, I can already tell you people who see how dim they go HATE IT. Having a way to bump up the night time brightness would help out a lot of poeple.

    Also putting this here - the "Notice Changes" in F.lux with the option not hidden (using resource hacker) works really well.



  • Wow. It sounds like they expect owners to have supplemental lighting or just excellent eyesight or something.



  • It's really just your eyes adjusting to it. I'm legally blind, but for whatever reason I've had very nice night / low light vision. Now I'm not saying things are clear, but the brightness is good, and I can easily make out large objects.

    So, you have better night vision than most in terms of how much light you can see?

    And yeah, after I made my post, I began thinking that with the Hue lights it's just a matter of getting used to the dimmer light, which isn't hard if you want it to happen. However, if you're impatient, then the time it takes to adjust can seem like an eternity.



  • I would say I see decently in the dark, and slightly prefer it to brighter light sources at night, I feel that I'm a bit more sensitive to changes in lighting at night than others, as it seems to have heavy effects on my sleep. That's why I prefer the dimmer light, and I don't mind it, as thankfully I can still see well enough with it dimmer.

    There are certainly several exceptions -- this is almost like bedtime lighting, and if I'm reading a book, it's not REMOTELY bright (dim?) enough to read halfway comfortably. That's 2 hue lights in a ceiling fan. I guess that's what lamps are for, haha.

    Yep! The closer the light source is to the object to be lit up (like a book), the higher the Lux value is because the concentration of photons is higher.
