Question

I have gotten cinema vision set up, and want to work on automating my lights. I have a three-bulb overhead light, and hope to add 2-4 wall sconces that are hard wired to power, and always on (no light switch ). I want to put in Mi-Light smart bulbs in all of them. What would be nice is to have semi-dim (maybe 80%) when the triva starts. Then go 50% when trailers start, and all off when the feature starts. After the movie I would lights to slowly brighten to full.  I have been reading the guide on home automation, and I know it says it is simple to make, but even I (who am in IT) cannot seem to figure it out. If I have these 3-7 bulbs (mi-light) connected to my wifi (the same the apple tv 4 is connected to) how do I set it up so the lights will act this way?

Hey there! So, Mi-Light Easybulb we already have Actions for. I don't have a guide to help you set it up, though. If you feel like stumbling through that with me, we can make one together. If you're not using Easybulb, I'd suggest trying these actions anyway. If they don't work, help me find your API documentation and we'll see if we can get you going.

Iam looking to buy these: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Mi-light-2-4G-Dimmable-E27-9W-RGBW-W-WW-LED-Light-Bulb-Lamp-wifi-Remote-/221738231124?var=&hash=item33a0a0e554:m:m1BvmG5pbzBq0WKvAISjMMQ

I would appreciate the help. My friend has these, and for about $18 a bulb, I find them a much better value then the Hue. And they look great!

For API, are you looking for something like this: https://github.com/yasharrashedi/LimitlessLED 

or

http://www.limitlessled.com/dev/

or

https://pypi.python.org/pypi/milight/0.5

I think the Easybulb Actions will work with all Mi-Light bulbs. If you could, test it out with your friends bulbs and see if it'll work. I'll take a look at those other links and make new Actions if we need to.
