Android App Issue: I seem to be having an issue with the Android App and the LIFX Z Strip. Before the latest version, I can set up both Light Strip and a LIFX 1000 to do certain themes and save them accordingly. After the latest version, whenever i hit the button to start that theme, the 1000 reacts perfectly, but now the Light strip literally changes 1 tiny zone of the whole 3 mtr strip to the correct colour. However, the IOS app which has been updated works as expected. I have tried turning off and on with both lights and and devices and no change. Please look into this Thanks Paul
Update - lifx responded quickly and fixed most of bugs. App can still be improved. But overall a very good experience! New version has lots of bugs. Many times you turn light on off via app but it doesn't really turn on. Alexa integration works fine. Fix the app asap! Old one atleast worked properly!
App will not connect light on lg vs980 4g 5.0.2, constantly 'connecting to light' never succeeds. Reset hardware, connected manually to light, still doesn't connect to wifi network, attempts to send credentials and it disconnects, reconnects to light but it's unsuccessful. I was able to connect on an earlier version of this app. This update seems broken. Force stopped app, cleared cache, started app again, signed in, light was somehow now connected. Router wndr3400 dd-wrt firmware.
Have had 2 bulbs of generation 3 for about 3 month. I like the fact that I can run the color spectrum to my hearts content. I don't like the fact that the bulbs will regularly disconnect and have had a few occasions where I've woken up and the bulbs are still on..huge disappointment. Then you have to reset them, then reconnect them. I can't depend on these bulbs being consistent. The price outweighs the advantage of these bulbs, iow, overpriced. I'm sure one day they will get better, today is not that day.
How come iOS version work so much better? Spent a lot of time just to "claim" one bulb which I didn't succeed BTW. Some of the reddit users said they have similar experience with Android app and that they have better luck using Amazon underground's lifx app or ios. Tried it and yeah, problem is fixed in no time.
Decent App, supports everything you need. You can group and edit bulbs per room etc. However, it is far away from intuitive. Connecting the bulbs to my WiFi was the worst, could not do it with my phone because I could not establish a connection. Tried to connect them to my WiFi over the Windows App. Took me over an hour, but it works finally
We have restyled the lights list with a fresh new look. Lights now appear as a familiar power icon – tap a light to quickly toggle power on and off. For full control of Colors, Whites, Themes and Effects tap the caption below a light’s power icon.
For LIFX +, we have added new night vision controls. Tap a light’s name then go to Edit > Night Vision to set invisible infrared illumination.
We’ve fixed up issues causing delayed effects on the color wheel or lights not to show up on the dashboard.
