Lifx+ Feature Idea


#1

Why waste electricity with the Lifx + night vision feature staying on all the time?

Let’s be honest, the night vision feature doesn’t need to be on 95% of the time. It only needs to be on when the camera detects activity (motion). Instead of leaving it on all the time wouldn’t it make more sense to have the night vision feature turn on when motion is detected?

Since the Lifx+ bulbs don’t have motion detectors, simply have the camera tell the bulbs to turn the night vision feature on when the cameras detect motion. Would be a great feature for the Lifx+ bulbs and would probably encourage more sales since many people don’t want to pay more for their electric bill than needed. Hopefully you guys and gals at Lifx will include this feature soon. Thanks.
