This page is documenting the state of development of the LIFX bulb integration.
LIFX White and LIFX Color bulbs are tested and supported.
Command set: ON, OFF, DIM, SETCOLOR - working fine
SetColourTemp is implemented, but not yet visible in the UI.
sudo apt-get install agocontrol-lifx
There are two different APIs for LIFX, Cloud based or native LAN. Both offer same functionality, but the LAN interface is much faster. Configuration for the agocontrol service goes into /etc/opt/agocontrol/conf.d/lifx.conf.
The Cloud interface is stable
[lifx] API=Cloud APIKEY=<add_your_key_here> PollDelay=10 # Seconds between checking e.g. dim level FadeTime=2.0 # 2 seconds fade time when dimmin up or down
This interface is extremely experimental at the moment and should not be used except for development.
[lifx] API=LAN NumLights=4 # The number of bulbs you have. By setting this, the discovery goes much faster PollDelay=10 # Seconds between checking e.g. dim level FadeTime=2.0 # 2 seconds fade time when dimmin up or down
Then enable and start the daemon
sudo systemctl enable agolifx.service sudo systemctl start agolifx.service
