rgbw light platform creates an RGBW light from 4 float output components (one for each channel).
# Example configuration entry light: - platform: rgbw name: "Livingroom Lights" red: output_component1 green: output_component2 blue: output_component3 white: output_component4
It is often favourable to calibrate/correct the color produced by an LED strip light as the perceived intensity of different colors will generally vary. This can be done by using max_power on individual output channels:
# Example configuration entry light: - platform: rgbw name: "Livingroom Lights" red: output_component1 green: output_component2 blue: output_component3 white: output_component4 # Example output entry output: - platform: esp8266_pwm id: output_component1 pin: D1 max_power: 80%
name (Required, string): The name of the light.
effects (Optional, list): A list of light effects to use for this light.
color_interlock (Optional, boolean): When enabled, this will prevent white leds being on at the same time as RGB leds. See Color Interlock for more information. Defaults to
id (Optional, ID): Manually specify the ID used for code generation.
All other options from Light.
With some LED bulbs, it is not possible to enable the RGB leds at the same time as the white leds, or setting
the RGB channels to maximum whilst wanting a white light will have an undesired hue effect. For these cases a
configuration variable is available that prevents the RGB leds and white leds from being turned on at the same
Setting this variable to
true will automatically turn off the RGB leds when the white value is non-zero, or
when the color is set to white (equal values for red, green and blue). When a different color is set, or the
color brightness is raised above 0%, the white leds are automatically turned off.
