Internal testing has shown up to 100 lights operating at the same time in ideal conditions.
In most real world conditions 35 lights or less is advised.
Make sure you are aware of the number of devices on your network, and how many clients (devices) your router will support at one time.
Determining factors include:
- Wi-Fi Signal
- Wi-Fi Router
- Network Congestion - Other connected devices, and surrounding networks
- Layout of location - Interference due to obstructions and signal strength
We recommend the following for best performance:
Place your LIFX bulb in an open area free from obstructions, such as large pieces of furniture or walls.
Place it away from metallic surfaces.
Do not place your LIFX bulb near a microwave oven, 2.4GHz cordless phone, or other source of interference.
This will provide the best possible connection between your router and LIFX bulbs.
