Description

Bias lighting for your Kodi media center using Pimoroni Mote lights.

How to install?

Requirements

I’m just starting with some Kodi and Python development, there is no repository available. Just copy the zip to some folder accessible by the user running kodi and choose to install from zip file. You have to enable unknown sources (Settings -> System -> Addons)

The service will run in the background.

The add-on integrates the Python Mote library from Pimoroni: https://github.com/pimoroni/mote

How to configure?

The configuration can be done in the Kodi add-on setting page.

You can configure the position of your Mote LED stripes like the following:


                       TOP LEFT                TOP MIDDLE              TOP RIGHT
                ----------------          ----------------          -------------

                |                                                               |

                |                                                               |

                |                                                               |

BOTTOM |        |                                                               |       | BOTTOM
                - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

                ----------------          ----------------          -------------
                   BOTTOM LEFT             BOTTOM MIDDLE            BOTTOM RIGHT

Inverting the output is also supported, you don’t have to pay attention to correct direction.

For setting up the correct positions download the test_color.mp4 video and play/pause it in Kodi while configuring your Mote.

You must deactivate / activate add-on to apply settings.

Todos

  • If capture is switching colors fast the lightning is noisy
  • Something like a color picker for custom colors?

Bugs, patches and feedback always welcome.
