Is wifi bridge need for control a bulb?

i want to control LIFX bulb by my custom way. (ex. to connecting via http, send some formed packet)
I have question about to control bulb.
I know…
If we control Philips hue, we should buy Philips wifi bridge too.

How about LIFX ?


There is no need to buy a bridge to connect to your LIFX bulb, they connect directly to your Wifi network.

Currently there are two ways to talk to LIFX bulbs from apps your build yourself. Our Cloud HTTP API or the LAN protocol.
