This plugin still in beta http://apps.mios.com/plugin.php?id=8986 allows for controlling LIFX bulbs from the veraplus(UI7).
This plugin works mainly via Lifx’s cloud and requires internet access (allows for “easy” scene and group control).
We have now gotten to the hybrid model where some commands are sent locally (when possible).To enable you MUST set USE_LOCAL to “true” in the advanced settings of the controller.
These LAN features are dependant on your local network, if your network for whatever reason does not allow for direct communication the plugin will continue to work as it did before. When working with LAN control your lights will respond pretty much instantaneously to supported commands (no more of that dreaded lag).
[ol][li]Enter your LIFX token in the settings tab of the device (you may need to scroll down to see the settings tab)[/li]
[li]Click the “List Devices” Button [/li]
[li]Select the devices, groups and Scenes you would like to control[/li]
[li]Click the “Sync Selection” Button [/li][/ol]
If you would like to remove a device from vera uncheck the device using after listing all lights and then click sync. Simply deleting the device from the vera UI is not recommended since the device may (who am I kidding, they WILL) re-appear.
A lot of resources can be found at http://forum.micasaverde.com/index.php/topic,36961.0.html and you can get a feel for where the development of this has come from. I’ve opened this thread to facilitate change-logs etc.
The work here is without guarantee etc etc and while I will make an effort to attend to bugs, time is very limited so custom (not generally useful) feature requests may not be honored.
The “Script”; It seems like I’ve somehow ended up with maintainer role of said “script”. I don’t use the script so I get no pleasure (whatsoever) from this, you will find said script attached here nonetheless. There are many experienced users here who will be able to respond to questions about it (the script).
