Animate via API/LAN

I’ve noticed in the API documentation that the effects available are either a little outdated (I’ve just become a customer, so I’m not sure if they were on the app prior to 4.0), or at least do not offer some effects that the app offers.

Is there anyway to set a group of lights to “Animate” via the api or LAN?

Thank you for any response in advance!

Hello,

The only animations that happen on the device are the Move effect on the Strip/Beam and Flame/Morph on the Tile and Color Candle - https://lan.developer.lifx.com/docs/firmware-effects

Everything else is done by constantly sending messages to the devices.

I have a script over here for replicating the flicker effect.
