Windows Dynamic Lighting is a revolutionary feature in Windows 11 that brings smart lighting technology to your home, and it's coming soon to LIGHTLINK. This technology, integrated into the Windows operating system, allows users to control and customize their lighting environment without the use of resource-heavy programs such as Razer Synapse, Corsair iCue, or other software. Let's explore the ins and outs of Windows Dynamic Lighting, its benefits, how to set it up, and much more.

What is Windows Dynamic Lighting?

Windows Dynamic Lighting is an advanced feature that allows users to control multiple different smart lighting and RGB devices through their Windows computer. This technology synchronizes with various activities such as gaming, working, and reading, adjusting the lighting ambiance to suit the specific task. By utilizing a combination of hardware and software, Windows Dynamic Lighting can change the color, brightness, and pattern of lights in real-time, creating a dynamic and immersive environment.

Benefits of Windows Dynamic Lighting
