Circadian lighting with f.lux

You already know that the light from screens can affect your sleep. Don’t overlook the rest of the lights in your house.

By dimming and shutting off lights in your home, you can create an environment that’s more friendly to sleep. You don’t need to buy any special gear just to flip a switch at night, but if you are looking for a gradual, automatic change, here’s how f.lux can run your lights.

This tutorial will cover using f.lux to run the Philips Hue White and Color Ambiance system on a Windows computer. Support for other lighting systems and macOS will be released in the future.

What you need

Right now, you’ll need two things:

  • A Windows computer connected to the Internet
  • A Philips Hue White and Color Ambiance starter kit
