With the release of LIFX app version 2.0 and later, and LIFX bulb firmware 2.0 and later, you can control your bulbs in a number of new ways.
You now sign up for a LIFX Cloud account as part of the setup. Once you LIFX bulbs are updated, we support:
- Remote access, and scheduling of your bulbs in the LIFX app.
- IFTTT recipe creation.
- Nest and Nest Protect integrations.
More Cloud based features will be released throughout 2015 and beyond. For remote access of your bulbs, you will notice that any time you open the new LIFX app, once your account is setup, that you are able to see updated bulbs and their state (on/off and color). By tapping the lights, you can control them over the internet, to turn on or off, or change color, from anywhere in the world, with an internet connection.
