Lifx (Ambilight) Addon for Kodi

Description
This add-on controls Lifx lights based on the following light groups, fully configurable using the setup wizard from addon settings.
  • Theater Group
    • Lights in the theater group act like wall lights in a typical theater. When playback starts the lights dim and they undim when playback is paused or ends. If you only want some of the lights to undim during pause, it is possible to configure "subgroup" in add-on settings -> Theater and only dim the subgroup.
  • Ambilight Group
    • Ambilight group tries to control the lights similarly to modern ambilight TVs. The add-on tries to figure out the most represented colors and brightness in each frame and change the lights to reflect that. They can also be configured to work similarly to theater group when playback is paused.
  • Static Group
    • Static lights act opposite to the theater lights -- they are turned on when playback starts, turned off when you pause the playback and go back to initial state after the playback stops.

Features
  • Fully customizable
    • Each group fully configurable with a discovery and selection wizard.
    • `Override` brightness/hue/saturation/temperature for different states in each of the theater/ambilight/static group - playback started/resumed, paused and stopped.
    • Option to forcefully `turn on` or `ignore` lights which are powered off (not switched off)
    • Option to `flash` lights once on discovery
    • Option to disable the Theater/Ambilight mode for `short videos`
      • Option to customize what is considered a *short* video
    • `Restore` the lights to original states (color and power) when movie stops.
  • 3 groups for your Lifx powered media center room
    • `Theatre`
      • `Dim` or Turn off the lights when Movie starts `playing`
      • `Undim` or Turn on the lights when you `pause` the movie
      • Return the lights to `original` settings when Movie ends.
      • Option to configure Fading time to be `proportional` to the current brightness. (e.g. take 7 seconds to change brightness from 100% to 30%, while taking 5 seconds to change from 50% to 0%)
    • `Ambilight`
      • Option to `Dim` the lights when Movie starts playing
      • Option to change `minimum` and `maximum` brightness
      • Option to configure threshold (minimum) values for brightness and saturation when calculating the color/brightness from picture frame.
      • Option to set different colors for different lights or same color for all lights
      • Option to configure bias value (lower the bias - more variety of colors, higher the bias - less variety of colors, but higher accuracy)
    • `Static`
      • Option to set a random color to the static lights that turn on when the video playback starts.
      • Option to override hue, saturation, brightness or temperature values
