A blueprint for dimming the lights when a movie or TV-show on Plex starts - and turn back on when paused or stopped.
This is developed for use with Tautulli add-on but it is really just an mqtt listener so in theory, it can be used with anything.

The automation will only run after sunset so the light won’t be affected unnecessarily.
The payload of the mqtt packet must contain the key “body” which has the value of one of the following states:
Where state can be one of the following:
This is very easy to configure in Tautulli by setting the “text” notification in the control panel of Tautulli and setting the “Message body”.
Tested and working with a Philips Hue Cher lamp (works with other bulbs too) connected through zigbee2mqtt. But any lamp can be connected from the drop down menu on configuration
