Introduction

Mi.Light products are low-cost and could be used for the Weather function in Rocrail.
The color spectrum is limited to 8 bit and will not be as smooth as other systems like Philips Hue and DMX.

Drawbacks

The bulbs save the last color and brightness settings, and after a power off and power on, the last setting will be used. (Could be with zero brightness… The room remains dark!)
This is not the excpected behaviour of bulbs which are used to light a room; They should go white with 100% brightness after the bulbs are switched on again.


Setup

Bridge & Bulbs

The bridge and bulbs must be setup independent of Rocrail with a WEB Browser as described in the product manuals.

The QR-Code of the Apps, iOS and Android, are printed on the bridge.
