Lights are fantastic. App doesn’t function in background AT ALL!

I don’t get it, I’ve set up my LIFX beam and A19 bulb to do several effects. It works flawlessly.... that is until you lock your iphone screen or switch to another app or simply go to the home screen. To keep the light effects going REQUIRES you to leave the app on the screen with your phone set to never automatically lock itself. Your phone’s screen has to be ON for any of the app’s functions to remain operational. I really really want to love your brand as you have some of the best lighting hardware out there, even better than Philips. But what good are they if the app associated with it can’t even function or remain stable. You have got to be able to lock your screen to be able to run it in the back ground. I’ve tried everything to make it run stable and I can’t find a pattern to what will make it work. I’ve tried unplugging all hardware and reinstalling the app. Resync’d the hardware to the wifi, everything. The ONLY way to make this run is to keep your phone on at all times. For someone spending hundreds on an awesome LIFX lighting system for your house, this is utterly ridiculous and unacceptable.

The app needs attention!!

First of all, the lights and colors on these LEDs are amazing BUT the app needs to be fixed, I’ve had a difficult time connecting these to the WiFi, once I did connect them everything seemed to work out ok, but there were a couple issues. When adjusting the brightness in the effects, the app doesn’t respond on time or respond at all. Another issue with the app and reason I did buy these LEDs for was specificity for the effects. Now when the app is open, the effects work, as soon as you put your phone to sleep the effects stop working which is very inconvenient. There is a way to keep them on, if you go to your phone’s settings to prevent your phone turning off automatically, and also dim your screen so the battery doesn’t drain. For the price you would think that it would be worth it but I feel like I wasted my money on an unfinished product

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.
