After setup of your bulbs, there may be a firmware update for your bulbs.
If you run into issues with updating your LIFX bulb firmware:
If the Updater fails:
1. Try running it again
If that doesn't work:
1. Power off the light(s)
2. Wait 5 seconds
3. Power on the light
4. Wait 30 seconds
5. Run updater again
If you are seeing failure notices on your device:
1. Download the LIFX firmware updater, for Mac, Windows or Linux
2. Run the update from your computer
Best practices when encountering issues updating:
1. Update bulbs 1 at a time when possible
2. Update bulbs in close proximity to the router
If the updater is quickly showing 'All Bulbs Up to Date' without showing any progress, please force quit app and reopen, and run updater again.
If you are still having issues with completing the update, please try temporarily disabling wireless N on your Wi-Fi router. Effectively, this is changing your 2.4Ghz network to be 802.11 b, g compatible, or 802.11g only. Once the update is complete, you will be able to re-enable the n settings on your router.
