LIFXstyle 3.0.5 | 4.87 MB
LIFXstyle was created to help usher in a world where you feel safer in your home, save energy, and can enjoy lighting effects from cosy to practical. LIFXstyle gives you manual control over your LIFX Bulbs bulbs and makes it easy to schedule them for when you’re not around. Plus other reassuring security features.
Works entirely on the local network, doesn’t use the LIFX cloud system at all.
Manual control over each bulb and groups of bulbs
Control groups of bulbs with a single touch
Appear to be at home even when you’re not by scheduling your lights to switch on and off, or up and down.
Scheduled times can be slightly randomised so they don’t look as if they’re on a timer
‘False dawn’ and ‘False dusk’ which can be scheduled or started manually (just dusk) for lamps or groups
Access your presets really quickly by assigning your F keys or from the status bar
Drag-and-drop effects designer for colour-changing or cycling effects
‘Badges’ dock icon with the number of lamps lit
The new v3 (still in beta) features:
Improved UI (better navigation and layouts, improved status bar menu)
Better connectivity and responsiveness
Supports groups and locations (which will be in sync with the official phone app) as well as the old ‘tags’ (which were referred to as ‘groups’ in LIFXstyle v1 and 2)
Custom colour-picker geared towards smartbulbs, switches between colours and whites with warm/cool adjustment
Version 3.0.5 (beta):
Adds new colour picker and warmth functionality to effects designer
Improves effect consistency (should continue at the same speed when LIFXstyle is in the background or screensaver kicks in)
Animates the swirly ‘effect’ button in control strips, so it’s clear when an effect is running
Other interface improvements (Adds toolbar ‘effects’ button, sorts out some inconsistent context button hiding in the schedule editing popover)
