NOTE: This filter does not work with Touchscreen as it covers the blocks you can interact with.
The science is out, and it’s been proven that blue light, late at night can keep us awake longer. We here at DAKboard care about your rest and well-being, so we’re excited to show you how to add a blue light filter to your DAKboard screens at night, so you can wake up well-rested and ready for the new day. Read on to learn how!
Simply add a “Shape” block to your custom screen. Resize it to fill the whole screen, and make sure it’s the top layer:
Edit the block, and set the background color to an orang-ish yellow with a low opacity. We find that the color of rgba(255, 192, 0, 0.08) works well for our taste:
Save your changes and preview your screen to see the blue light filter in action!
And after, with the shape (blue light filter) block:
Lastly, edit the shape block again and set a schedule under the “Schedule” tab above so the block is only visible at night from 7 PM to 7 AM (or whatever time you like) and save your changes.
You can also achieve other effects with different colors, shapes, and opacities. For example, if you use Black and set the opacity lower you can use it to Dim the screen or even hide the screen entirely. Try it and see what you think.
