How to programatically pair Lifx Bulb to local wifi router?

I’m trying to develop an android app which should be able to connect Lifx A21 lightbulb with local wifi router, is there a way to do this without Lifx Smartphone App.


Unfortunately the protocol for telling a device what wifi to connect to isn’t part of our public API.

Sounds like time to use something like wireshark to sniff some packets.
I would start here, but switches by design make it hard to sniff data - ideally you need to monitor FROM your switch/router. Knowing the local network IP address of your phone and the light should make filtering that conversation from the general network noise easier.
