Support Night Shift and f.lux for Mac OS
As documented, there is work underway for Windows to support f.lux. However, I haven't seen any clear communication that support Night Shift of f.lux on Mac OS is in the works as neither are supported via DisplayLink. It would be really nice to have these options on Mac.
Blue light reduction on DL-3000, DL-5000 and DL-6000 series delivered via f.lux and DisplayLink Manager 1.7
f.lux is available from https://justgetflux.com.
Should you have questions or meet issues, please create a support ticket by emailing email@example.com as individual cases can't be analysed through the idea board.
I just purchased a DisplayLink docking station and am very disappointed to see that a built in feature of MacOS is not supported.
needed this yesterday. i tried Lunar2.0, Brightness slider, and nothing works which change the color gamma and brightness automatically on my external monitors.
Need it too! Currently using Lunar 2.0 on Mac OS 10.14, but it cannot control my DisplayLink monitor. Thanks!
Please, is possible to add Night Shift feature for Mac OS X? Would be really appreciated.
I'm more concerned with f.lux, but if night shift is possible it's better than nothing. Having a single "normal" display shining in my face at night when the rest of my setup is red-shifted for comfort is quite jarring.
I installed DisplayLink today. I'm very glad that I have two monitors. But I also very much need the Night Shift / flux functionality enabled on all displays. Thank you
I just got my new DisplayLink monitor and Night Shift or f.lux is desperately needed. Still no plans to add it to the Mac driver?

Yes! I constantly code in the late nights of the night. I'd definitely like to see this added to Mac OS drivers!

Same issue here - using displaylink dock station for mac and no nightshift with any tool I tested for external monitor =(
Please fix this issue.
Would love to see support for nightshift sometime soon.
Hello. Having 2 external displays plus the internal display use Night Shift; but the third external display driven by the DisplayLink adapter not use it is really jarring.
It would be great if you can make it work.
+1 This is also a huge issue for me. Please, please fix this.
This is a major limitation for me as well. Direct displayport connect to the laptop works just fine with night mode. I guess I have to deal with extra direct wires as opposed to trusting DisplayLink to even acknowledge this as an issue.

Status update, please?
I do most of my work at night, so having two displays on Night Shift with the third (displaylink) display glaring bright blue light like it's a flashbulb makes it completely useless.
If not resolved within 14 days I am getting a refund from Amazon.
DisplayLink - Night Shift = Uselses.

What's the status of this feature? I just purchased this box and it's enough to make me return it.
I am facing the same.

I believe this is needed to have a uniform experience with multiple screens. Do you have any plan to start developing on this?
Please implement this immediately!
It's so frustrating you can't use these feature on an external monitor with macOS.
