Flux_led ability to control speed and more effect


#1

I’d like to request some more feature for the flux_led component
It seems absurd that we are not able to control the speed of the effects from HA, while it is totally possible from the MagicHome app… also, it would be awesome if we could have more effects


Flux_LED - Programs working, but can't control speed strobe speed?
#2

Would like to see this functionality too. The default strobe speed is too slow. Also the app allows you to change the strobe speed so it should be ported to HA.


#3

Still not available in .83.2…next update??


#4

I don’t think it’s even been taken into consideration by the developers, it’s not voted enough to be seen

In case someone takes a look at this request.

flux_led.py sends effects like so:

if effect in EFFECT_MAP:
self._bulb.setPresetPattern(EFFECT_MAP[effect], 50)

the 50, in this case is a speed setting. This need to be a variable the user can change between 1-100.

Sadly, I do not have the knowledge to fix this in python, or I would put in a pull request.


#6

So changing this value changes the strobe speed? Have you tried this?


#7

Yes. I copied the contents of flux_led.py and made a custom component called custom_components/light/led_flux.py

Then, changed the domain to ‘led_flux’ instead of flux_led. Now I have a light component called led_flux.

Since, I only want effects to blink quickly, I set the speed to 100 and it works for my setup.

sweet…I’ll try this
