As there is more and more proof that circadian lighting is healthy, it would be good to have a good circadian lighting platform. Happily there is of course the flux platform that does a great job. It would be good to give the flux platform some love however. Especially to better support regions further away from the equator (think Alaska / Antarctica / Canada / Scandinavia / Scotland / Siberia / South of Chili and Argentina)
- There should be some overrides to make flux more more time based than sun position based. For example in winter when the sunsets early (in some regions for example at 3PM or so), the colortemp does get too warm too early. This will make you sleepy in the afternoon, while you still need to do some work. Thus make flux programmable so that it is less depended on the sun but more on your day.
[EDIT] The custom Circadian lighting can do this by setting sunrise and sunset times to a fixed time.
- It would be good to easily sets some specific mode, kind of a scene that overrides flux for a certain time. Of course this can be done with an automation that switches off flux and sets the color temperature for those lamps and when it is done re-enables flux again. However I like to have all related functions together. So if we can define these modes in flux and have some triggers to enable and disable these modes/scenes? (yes you still needs an extra automation for that, but all the circadian info, like color temperature will be in one place)
