Re: [tlug] Wanted: LED stripes, controllable from Linux

There are plenty of light strips on Amazon JP that don’t require using a physical remote or a phone app. I use a bunch of Zigbee lights throughout my place, it’s a mix of Philips Hue where I care about color + functions (accent lights that sync to media with HyperHDR), IKEA Tradfri where I care about color but not functions (ceiling lights), and and cheap no-name (GLEDOPTO) where I don’t care about either (footlights). I have them linked up via Zigbee2MQTT to Home Assistant, through which I can control them from whatever I want. Though I use the Hue bridge for the Hue lights for the media sync functions, but it’s not strictly necessary.

I find that the best shopping method for such things is to browse through what lights are officially supported by Home Assistant. If Home Assistant supports it, it probably has an open or sufficiently reverse-engineered interface for use with whatever you want. There are lots of fairly standard light strips that you can craft an ESPHome controller for too.
