Android application delayed api call

Hi Daniel i m developin g an android application using http api . api call seems to delayed and bulb responds after 2 to 5 seconds . but same bulb is responding real time in LIFX app

Hi Surya,
the LIFX App is using the LAN protocol for local lights, which naturally has a lower latency then the HTTP API

thank you florian,
I have used LIFX app from remote location to control lights and latency is very low . Can you give me some example or tutorial for http api for android application

i want control lights over the internet and with minimum latency… is there any network speed requirement??

Hi Surya,

Unfortunately, for remote locations only the HTTP API is available to 3rd party developers.


then what is implemented in LIFX app http api or samething else??
