    Anyone see an issue here?
    85 + 43 <> 129
    Even worse, there are actually 170 A19 bulbs and a few A19+

    Lastly, and tangentially, it's hard to manage 170 lifx bulbs one-by-one (wah)
    any way to just specify a group? I've got 26 groups, would be so much easier

    Hello,

    I am sorry, I completely missed this query. You're likely the first user to try using over 100 bulbs with my plug-in. I only have 26 bulbs and I thought that was a lot. There is a broadcast packet sent that requests each bulb to advertise itself. Can you confirm each bulb has the latest firmware installed?

    Regards,

      All on 2.76 firmware, all work well in Lifx app and via Alexa. There are some dropouts due to poor wifi (anything less than 99% signal strength it seems)

      I think I've been having this issue since 60 bulbs. Went back to homeseer because I think your plug-in works great with lifx (on the bulbs it sees).

      Maybe it's an issue with my installation but I've tried on multiple W10-1803 machines.

        Are you stating you are not seeing any new LIFX bulbs beyond 60 or only 60 will work at any given time?

          60 didn't work right so I kept adding more. Now 170. Ultralighting3 was a few shy of the total at 60, and now is closer to 40 shy of the total of 170.

          I've tried removing ultralighting3 and also removing every ultra* folder and file before reinstalling.

            Solution!
            From Ultrajones' excellent support...He deduced that not all of my APs are allowing UDP broadcast....with 13 APs I did not configure them all correctly.
            Allowing UDP broadcast got me to only one missing bulb...excellent! and entirely my mis-configuration mistake.
