# Example configuration entry
light:
  - platform: monochromatic
    name: "Kitchen Lights"
    output: output_component1

# Example output entry
output:
  - platform: esp8266_pwm
    id: output_component1
    pin: D1

Configuration variables:

  • name (Required, string): The name of the light.
  • output (Required, ID): The id of the float Output Component to use for this light.
  • 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.
  • internal (Optional, boolean): Mark this component as internal. Internal components will not be exposed to the frontend (like Home Assistant). Only specifying an id without a name will implicitly set this to true.
  • If MQTT enabled, all other options from MQTT Component.
