I may try MQTT for the moment, hopefully some smart developer comes along and gets .
My smartthings hub died early this year, so I went and tried Home Assistant and OpenHAB - and re-created 141 devices and automations in SmartThings (good times?). Unfortunately the rule / automations in home assistant was going to take away too much time - plus a simple colon on the wrong place would cause it to crash!
Anyway I still have HA setup and local lifx devices is among the simplest in HA to configure. So I think for the moment I'll give the MQTT integration here: Hubitat MQTT Integration a try with HA, using the rules from Hubitat.
At my house when people press a Pico button to control LIFX bulbs, they don't understand it takes time, so all the other Pico buttons will get pressed until something happens.
