LIFX Integration - 1 of Lifx Strip not working as expected


I have 2 x LIFX Strips; both strips can be found by Hubitat using built-in LIFX Integration; but once added, only 1 works.

Video: Issue Adding Lifx Strip to Hubitat - YouTube
00:22 - I added "Lifx Theatre" and it shows 'current states'
00:31 - It shows a bunch of zones too
00:45/00:57 - I added a second unit "Lifx Study" - this time, the 'current states' is blank
01:11 - Lifx Study does not show the same zones on the device

Could someone please let me know what went wrong here?
I can adjust both strips using Lifx app just fine on my phone


I suspect no one here is able to assist me? thank you


Quick glance.. This looks like a network issue..

A cople things looked odd.. The "Study" light is on an IP address that is typically reserved for your router.. This is not alaways the router address on a subnet like this, but it is 99% of the time.. Are you doing any kind of static IP reservations for your lights?

Thank you; appreciate your assistance.

Yes, you were right; has something to do with the network - I reset my router settings and it started to work again.


Perhaps to a reservation for all your lifx stuff (and any and all iot devices) That will ensure there isn't any duplication of ip's

LIFX lights in particular need an IP fixed at the router. I just spent time this afternoon chasing down an LIFX bulb I forgot to fix the IP. Router eventually gave it a new one and the LIFX Master app became eratic.
