Control 4 is the most installed integrated home automation system in the world.

This is not a network problem. This is a problem of every single request & response having to travel through the LIFX servers because that is the only API you offer. Some actions require numerous request/response conversations and this is horribly error producing.
And is also an exceptionally antiquated way of doing things. If some bit of network (my internet link, yours, your servers, etc.) isn’t functioning then we have no normal control of LIFX lamps. We can control every other type of lamp in our house but not LIFX.
Control of our lamps should not be traveling outside of our house unless we are away from home.
