    Hey guys,

    two month ago i asked for milight support which is not able to set saturation. so you said it is not possible to control the exact color. Actually i am going to buy a yeelight bulb.

    i found the developer api and it seems really well documented.

    Yes

    set_rgb
    This method is used to change the color of a smart LED.

    I don't have one so not in a position to do it.

    If someone can persuade yeelight to give me a couple I will !

    Navigonic, there is a Kodi addon for the Yeelights (https://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=313197&pid=2687134#pid2687134), maybe something could be retrieved from that and implemented with Hyperion. This is just a crazy idea, but maybe it would make sense.

    I would gladly offer myself as a test subject, since I have two of these lamps and am already trying to make it work as a flawless ambilight system. The addon has a ambilight option, but it is still laggy and a bit buggy. It does work with Hyperion, with the Windows capture program. I am dying for this to happen :crying:;).
