RGBW Light

The 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

Configuration variables:

  • name (Required, string): The name of the light.
  • red (Required, ID): The id of the float Output Component to use for the red channel.
  • green (Required, ID): The id of the float Output Component to use for the green channel.
  • blue (Required, ID): The id of the float Output Component to use for the blue channel.
  • white (Required, ID): The id of the float Output Component to use for the white channel.
  • gamma_correct (Optional, float): The gamma correction factor for the light. Defaults to 2.8.
  • default_transition_length (Optional, Time): The length of the transition if no transition parameter is provided by Home Assistant. Defaults to 1s.
  • effects (Optional, list): A list of light effects to use for this light.
  • id (Optional, ID): Manually specify the ID used for code generation.
  • All other options from MQTT Component.

Note

The RGBW light platform only works with float outputs that can output any light intensity percentage like the ESP32 LEDC or ESP8266 PWM components and does not work with output platforms like the GPIO Output.
