heliotron 0.2.1

Simple library to interface with Philips Hue light bridges.

Heliotron is a simple library that talks to Philips Hue light bridges through [a supported REST API][1]. It is currently a fairly rough work-in-progress.

Several use cases were the primary motivation for this library:

  • I wanted a script that gradually changed color temperature of Philips Hue lighting on the same schedule as the popular [f.lux][2] utility. _(This is now available with the latest f.lux for Windows release.)_
  • I'd like to switch on a subset of my lights around sunset/dusk, if they're not already on, so that I don't come home to a pitch dark apartment.
  • The official Hue mobile apps won't let you store more than 3 active schedules on the bridge at a time, which is quite limited. This library provides the ability to write a simple script to switch or fade on a set of lights, and crontab it however you please.
