More than 1 bulb at a time on Nest?


#1

One of the main reasons why I chose Lifx bulbs over hue was that it connects to the Nest Protect and flashes red when it (Nest Protect) sounds an alarm.

I wanted all the Lifx bulbs that I have in the house to do this simultaneously.

However I can’t seem to use this feature with more than one bulb at a time.

The app says to select the bulbs (plural) that you want to use, but it only allows you to select just one bulb.

What am I missing?


#2

Not sure but for me all my bulbs and Z flashes red then white however for me they never stop doing that, it just goes on until I set a new scene then it stops.
Even turning the light on and off does not fix the issue.


#3

I have it setup so that it does the whole house. Is that an option in the drop-down list?


#4

How did you accomplish this? What version of the app are you using?


#5

This is what I seeing.


#6

I do not see a “House” option. Everything else looks the same as yours.

What platform are you on, iOS or Android?


#7

Sorry, forgot to note it in the previous post.

I’m using Android.


#8

That may be it. I’m on iOS.


#9

Do you have your groups setup as rooms or do you have your location setup as rooms?

When I first used LIFX, I had it setup like this:

Location    -> Group   -> Light
Living Room -> TV Area -> TV Left

After talking to LIFX support, I found out this was not the correct configuration. If this is what you have setup, that’s your issue. If not, I think you should contact LIFX support as they’ll be able to help you more past this point.

Thanks for all of your help. I will look into that but I may end up returning all my bulbs because of other issues that I’m having with them.
