Would it be possible to implement an upper lux reading cutoff option (similar idea to the ignore 0 lux reading option)? I believe that would help with the Nexus 5 spiking in low light when held at certain angles.

Thanks for the reply.
I just tested again and it seems to be working again, at least Dynamic (haven't tested periodic yet)
And yes, I already had it set to persistent notification.

It can be something like the profiles used to turn wi-fi on and off by userdefined time - only in this case by userdefined ambient light values

Yes, this would be a nice feature.

Cyb3rGlitch, for features I suggest
- changing profiles (night/day) by time (ATM possible with Tasker but I would prefer implementation into Lux) or by trigger-button in notification-bar
- customization of Lux-dash in notification-bar, e.g. I don't need a button for Astro-mode or for on/off, and would change the height/width of the bar and buttons. Also the position, it's always at the bottom, so not at a reliable place if there are other notifications..

The idea with changing night/day profile is good. However I think that combination of tasker and Lux with its tasker variables would be awesome. Imagine that you set up Tasker to change profile from day to night at 10 PM and depending on the lux read from the sensor. This case even if it will be 10 PM but you are in the bright room the screen will not dimm.

Well this is indeed currently possible, simply enable plug-in support in Advanced-menu. This Tasker-support is built-in in Lux pro-version IIRC.
But built-in daytime/nighttime-switch would be one development-click away IMHO.

Sorry if this has been answered, but I didn't see anything when searching. What is the status of a Nexus 5 Plugin?

Also, When using Lux in Night mode on nexus 5 4.4.2, my navbar ends up turning into more of a solid bar than the translucent bar that more seamlessly blended into the rest of the screen. It seems to be affected by the "color temperature" being more noticeable as you go to a lower value.

Currently you can set up tasker to change ptofilr (with plugin) and to check sensor, which uses more battery. What you can't do is to utilize built in tasker variables for lux.

if we need the apps to control the lux. But need the games in full brightness. Can we do that ?

I try the exclude option, it just make the brightness remain in the last status when i start the game.

For me great feature would be option to change brightness basing not on luma or lux sensor, but on some kind of mathematical function of them. For example:
a*luma + b*lux
Where a and b are constants.
I am proposing that because I noticed that indoor luma sensor (camera) have much better resolution than lux sensor. Otherwise outdoor lux is better than luma.
For example:
Indoor:
Lights on:
lux=1;
luma=132;
Lights off:
lux=0;
luma=10;
Outdoor:
Very bright:
lux = 2000;
luma = 255;
Not so bright:
lux=300;
luma=255;
