    UltraLighting3 (LIFX LED WiFi Bulbs) HSPI for HS3


    UltraLighting3 is a HomeSeer3 plug-in (HSPI) that allows you to use HomeSeer to set your LIFX LED lights to suit your mood or life style. The UltraLighting3 HSPI uses the LAN protocol which allows the fastest control of your lights. With LIFX there are no cables or hub; all you need is Wi-Fi, your iOS/Android device and a LIFX Light. Once your lights are configured, the UltraLighting3 HSPI will automatically discover and configure them for use with HomeSeer.

    How It Works
    • UltraLighting3 HSPI uses the LIFX LAN Protocol to discover and control all your LIFX LED lights connected to your home WiFi network.
    • The plug-in continues to listen for LIFX network packets to detect a change in a lights state.
    • The plug-in will automatically create a HomeSeer device for each LED light allowing direct control of on/off/dim.
    • HomeSeer events allow you to control a single light or a group of lights.

    Main Features
    • Create HomeSeer events to control on/off/dim, set colors, whites for one light or a group of lights.
    • Direct control of LIFX lights by interacting with the HomeSeer device or controlling them using HomeSeer event actions.
    • Command retry technology is built into the plug-in which provides for reliable control of your lights.
    • Error Try/Catch logic to ensure plug-in doesn't fail with an unhandled exception.
    • Multiple threading allows UltraLighting3 to manage and control your LIFX lights without disrupting the performance of HomeSeer.

    Example Usage
    • Change the color and brightness of all your LIFX lights when the sun sets.
    • Turn on your LIFX lights and change the color to bright red whenever your alarm system triggers.
