Hi all - hoping to get some clarity and suggestions on fixing an issue area I have with Hyperion and its interfacing with WLED.
- Rpi2b with Hyperion
- ESP8266 with WLED
- SK6812 NW 60LEDs/m
- HDMI splitter with USB grabber
- 15a PSU
Here's the context - I use Home Assistant to automate turning Hyperion LED output on/off depending on the state of my media player being on/off. When Hyperion (and therefore TV) is not in use, I use WLED to control the light strip as a light source for the room (No canned lights, fan lights, or any lights really). Therefore, the light strip is almost perpetually on when someone is in the room.
All well and great. Here is the situation: Say the lights are white at 50% brightness. I go and watch TV, turning on Hyperion output and overriding the white color and brightness. When I am done watching TV, Hyperion turns off and is supposed to set the output back to the ORIGINAL WLED settings from when the Hyperion was turning on initially. What I am actually seeing is that Hyperion turns off and the strip is set to max brightness, and within a second slowly fades to the original brightness.
Now, it's not a deal breaker. It's just slightly annoying. Especially in a situation where it is night time, and the room is otherwise dark. A 100% brightness for a second or two strains the eyes until the transition finishes.
Any thoughts on how I can configure WLED or Hyperion to immediately transition to the correct brightness? Happy to provide video if the above is unclear.
