LIFX Driver
#11
Back from the grave, but any change in status of a LIFX Driver?

No, nothing done on that front. These are the Wifi based lights, right? I've been considering getting a few and working on that. Generally speaking, that's a bit low endy and we don't encourage use of Wifi based doodads. But, the protocol doesn't look overly complicated or anything. One problem is that it doesn't fit in well with our driver model. Typically, we talk to one box, which talks to the various things that that box controls (Z-Wave, Radio RA2, etc...) Or, we talk to one thing that is actually just one thing, like an A/V receiver. A driver per light wouldn't be very great, but we don't have a good means currently to allow the user to configure multiple IP addresses for a single driver.

OTOH, it does look like the protocol supports device discovery so it could just find them itself I guess.

If I were going to grab, say, three LIFX devices to use for development, what would be a set that would provide the widest range of possibilities for me to have to deal with. Are they all basically either dimmable white or RGB?
