Directly controlling lights

I got the lifx strips to add lights to a game table I use for wargamming, tabletop rpgs, and other gaming needs. I wanted to write an application that can recreate flame, storm, galaxy, and other effects. I think the rate limit of 2 requests a second might be too limiting and with the location of the table wifi might not be the best. I was wondering if a library exists any where to directly control the light strips through the pins using a raspberry pi or arduino perhaps.

Hello,

That’s what the LAN protocol is for :slight_smile:

The documentation can be found at https://lan.developer.lifx.com/ but I recommend using an existing library like LIFXLan or Photons
