    Increíble aplicación, una sensación de ambilight sin demasiadas complicaciones, la única pega es que no se puedan crear grupos , para usar varios dispositivos al mismo tiempo , esperare futuras actualizaciones

    Works good, but can I suggest some things:

    1. Edit texts in addition to sliders and color picker, would make picking desired value much easier
    2. Display select for movie mode... a bit disappointed it doesn't work if You consume media on second monitor
    3. Movie mode running on multiple devices at once? I have two strips and I have to stop one to run it one the other.

    @Polish Spurdosparde

    1. Good idea, I'll consider it.
    2. Already on my plans. I have lots of ideas for movie mode.
    3. Also on my plans. I'll add groups/rooms so you can controll multiple bulbs at once, not only movie mode.

    Is there plans to integrate with Home Assistant, or launching via command to start movie mode on a IP?

    Hey, the GitHub link isn't there and is there a way to interface this program by command ? If yes, which language would I use?

  • Augusto Mota Pinheiro
    2018-06-25 04:41:40

    @Augusto Mota Pinheiro and by command, I mean from a script, like python or c# or JavaScript. Would it be possible to run it on a server then? Thank you!

  • Jordi
    2018-07-04 05:39:14

    @Augusto Mota Pinheiro this tool is closed source.
    Also, you can interact with the bulb itself from a script or using any other programing language, I don't get the need to interface my program.

    Hi@Jordi, would it be possible to add a keyboard shortcut to turn the light on and off?

    Hey! Check out my new app, an improved music mode for android that captures internal audio instead of recording from the microphone.
    Download it from Google Play:
    More details here:
    I know I haven’t updated Yeelight Toolbox much while working on this, but development will be resumed. Thanks for your patience!

    Version 3.0.0 uploaded!
    · Groups.
    · New tabbed layout.
    · New fields for inputting RGB and HEX values manually.

    I've also created a Telegram group for bug reporting, feature requests, suggestions and beta testing. English only. I might as well create a Telegram channel for changelogs so development and releases would be easier to follow.

    Huge thanks to the Yeelight team for providing the necessary hardware, implementing groups would have taken much longer and would have been much harder to debug without their help

    Added an option to add devices manually for those of you who can't get automatic discovery to work (Advanced -> Add device). It's still work in progress.

    Should the keyboard shortcuts work while the program is minimized? They seem to only work while it's the active window.

    I was wondering if you could add midi integration ?
    In my case i would like to control my bulbs with daw or midi controller but i dont have any knowledge in dev things.

    First of all- really great idea to put this program on PC. I'd like to suggest some things:
    -It would be great to minimize resource consumption in changing colour to screen option because in my case (CPU i5 4690k oc to 4,5GHZ) CPU usage rizes to around 50% just with yeelight turned on.
    -I saw "Turn all on/off at startup" option. It would be nice if this could be configurable with choosing particular group of lights or just one light!
    Thats all for now, keep a good work with this!

    Working devices are no longer working!
    Due to LAN Control is disabled somehow on some devices and the option to turn it back again is REMOVED from yeelite app!
    Seriously, that must be resolved.
    An option to send a command for enabling LAN control must be added.
