Setting Up Lights is A Mission on iOS

My sole complaint with this app is a HUGE one. Setting up lights is a seriously frustrating process of iOS. It takes me about 30 minutes of trying setup over and over again to finally get the app to find surrounding WiFi networks. I find I have to double-tap the home button on my iPhone 8 Plus to quickly switch back and forth between the LIFX app and my WiFi settings page to trick the LIFX app into (eventually) finding surrounding WiFi networks instead of taking me to a blank page where I have to manually enter my home WiFi network (which it never finds this way, even though I’m entering the correct information). I LOVE my LIFX bulbs, but when I move, or am having connection issues with my bulbs and need to reset them, setup is incredibly frustrating. For how expensive these bulbs are, the LIFX app developers need to step up their game. There’s no use in owning these bulbs if you can’t even set them up.

Updated: Homekit!

It works, and I never had any problems with it. I do like the selection of scenes but it feels like I should have much more from you or a community to choose from. Also, after using schedules for a while I hope for a feature to somehow turn on the lights when someone who comes in proximity of the home that has the app installed.

Other than that, keep rocking it with the lights and app. Keep it consistently updated with new stuff. Thanks! 4/5

Update: I have changed my 4/5 to 5/5. Just because of homekit, thank you! The best decision you have made, just wish it included the Z strip.. You came out with the Z strip upon mentioning homekit was in development. Still, you are constantly updating and keeping with the lights so props to you! Now I can quickly access lighting options if I need to and have the lights turn off and on according to location. Best update! Looking forward to more in the future.

Deserves better rating than 2.4

I have just read some of the reviews, do not take them too seriously. LIFX are great, I own 13 bulbs of different models and only 2 developed problems over the 2 years I owned them and customer support was fast in replacing them with brand new models at no cost.

Of the two issues, one case overheated and cracked because of MY lamp shade not giving it ample room to breath, I had no business attempting to try to make it fit. They replaced it.

The other bulb was in the bathroom in moist conditions for the entire 18 months I had it problem free. Things don’t last as long in the humidity. They replaced it.

I don’t know what an earlier review was referring to regarding customer service. LIFX customer service is excellent. The app functions just fine, you just need to be a little technically minded, and patient. It’s new technology with a lot of factors...not every house has excellent WiFi coverage in every room and this can cause some delay, and ultimately, LIFX gets the blame from frustrated individuals who don’t understand the issues they are having.

My lights work great all across my house and I have a centrally located router. It doesn’t always work well with apple home kit, it can be buggy. But that’s not LIFXs problem either. Through the dedicated app it works as advertised.

I would say this has had an unfair review.
