Feature Request/Query: Multi-zones with HomeKit scenes

Apologies if this has been mentioned before, first-time poster. In an ideal world and off the back of my experience with LIFX lights I’d prefer to have all my smart devices from LIFX, but that not yet being possible, I run my ‘smart’ devices via HomeKit. One of the main reasons I bought LIFX Z over Philips Hue was the addressable LEDs making multi-zones possible on a single light strip. Just wondering, is it an issue with HomeKit or a possible area of development for LIFX firmware that the iOS Home app can’t currently handle multi-zones on LIFX Z?

It’s not possible to use HomeKit to set individual zones on a multi-zone/matrix LIFX device.

Have you tried creating a scene that sets your multizone device to the colour sequence you want in the LIFX app and then copying that scene to HomeKit? To be honest, it’s been a while since I’ve tried it, but I think that’s supposed to work.
