Actually the API seems quite easy and it should be no problem to manage the system with the Light-Manager. But as some manufacturers want to be super cool LIFX requires HTTPS instead HTTP, which is ridiculous within a private network and just causes a lot of overhead. However, we have not yet integrated HTTPS into the Light-Manager as there was no demand so far. We will check out how much expenditure this would require.

One thing should be considered. Each of these lights is connected to the server of the manufacturer. If the server or the internet connection fails, you won't be able to turn lights on or off anymore.
Wir wünschen viel Spaß mit den Produkten und einen erfolgreichen Tag! Ihr jbmedia Team
