Hi All,

I’m sorry if I’m asking a question that has an answer somewhere.

What kind of Microcontroller inside the LIFX mini smart lamp? Can I interface with it using Python? Can I write its Flash memory? Is it possible to update the firmware myself?

I do not have a lamp yet. I’m planning to get one if I have an answer for such questions.

Many thanks in Advance!


It’s an ESP32.

Unfortunately you can’t write to it’s Flash or update the firmware yourself.

You can, however, control it over the LAN

Documentation can be found at https://lan.developer.lifx.com/

Though I recommend a library like the one I made or lifxlan
