Documentation Status Nuget Discord

NZXTSharp is a C# package that allows interaction with NZXT's Hue+. Support for other devices will be coming.

You can find NZXTSharp on NuGet here.

I am looking for people to help NZXTSharp grow by integrating NZXTSharp with ProjectAurora and/ or RGB.NET. If you are interested, please contact me on Discord, or by email.

Please keep in mind that NZXTSharp is in development, and will have breaking changes in the future.

Documentation can be found at NZXTSharp's page. Docs are built from the docs branch.


NZXTSharp's syntax is lightweight, only taking a few lines to get started.

using NZXTSharp;
using NZXTSharp.Devices;
using NZXTSharp.Effects;

HuePlus hue = new HuePlus(); // Create device
Fixed effect = new Fixed(new Color(255, 255, 255)); // Make fixed effect
hue.ApplyEffect(hue.Both, effect); // Apply effect


Q: Are there any plans to make an SDK in XX language? A: As of yet, no. I am focusing on support for the .NET framework. Python is most likely next.

Q: Is XX device supported? A: Next up on the list are KrakenX devices, after that is most likely the Hue 2.


NZXTSharp is provided under the GNU GPLv3 license, but I want to re-iterate these stipulations:

  • This software is provided as is.
  • This software is provided with no warranty.
  • Neither I, nor any of NZXTSharp's collaborators hold any liability for any broken or not working hardware resulting from using this package. Please use your best judgement.

A big thank you to Pet0203 for his help in reverse engineering the protocols and building NZXTSharp.
