Lifix app

#1

Why does the lifix app pause its self every 24 hrs.
The only way to get it back in line is to restart the app
Thanks

#2

Pause itself? It doesn’t crash?

#3

I’m using it and doesn’t get any crash… (I use local & cloud versions)

#4

Pauses it’s self

Ah, you have a lot of lifx-devcies. As the Athom-app uses the Lifx-API, probably lifx bloxks your ip or something like that. The Lifx-local app should work however?

I think that is the case indeed. I just checked the code of the lifx app from athom and for every f# device the app is polling the api… instead of bundling the polling and send out state changes to the devices they let the device poll it. So in this case it would be 14 poll requests at least.

https://www.npmjs.com/package/node-lifx seems like should be easy to create a new app with lots of possibilities :wink:
