Controlling Lifx Beam with HTTP API?

I’ve searched and searched but can’t find an answer to whether or not the Beam can be controlled via the HTTP API… does anyone know where I can find that answer? If yes, are there any limitations?

Thanks- Jim

Hello,

All LIFX products can be controlled via the HTTP API.

With multizone products like the Beam and Z strip you can control individual zones using a zone selector https://api.developer.lifx.com/docs/selectors#multi-zone-selectors

Also with multizone products you have the move firmware effect, https://api.developer.lifx.com/docs/move-effect

At this time you can’t control individual pixels on a tile using the HTTP Api but you can us the API to start flame and morph firmware effects.
