Monochromatic Light

The monochromatic light platform creates a simple brightness-only light from an float output component.

Example of a brightness-only LED strip that can be used with this component.
# Example configuration entry
  - platform: monochromatic
    name: "Kitchen Lights"
    output: output_component1

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.
  • All other options from MQTT Component.


The monochromatic 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.
