Hi all, I was looking to buy RGB lights, particularly something like the Philips Hue Light bar.

Aside from it being very expensive and requiring a hub for its “smart” features, as far as I can tell the software used to control it isn’t open source.

I know OpenRGB exists but I’d prefer a manufacturer that supports open source software, if that exists. Any other recommendations welcome! Thanks

You can buy a ConBee 2, look for RGB lights in their list of supported Zigbee devices and then plug the ConBee to a RPI running Home Assistant.

That looks like exactly what I want, thank you! Do you know of the ConBee is open source?

Yes, the software that controls the ConBee is OSS

If you connect them with motherboard rgb sync header you might be able to adjust them

All about open source! Feel free to ask questions, and share news, and interesting stuff!
