Using a 3rd party LED strip with Lifx app


I am looking to use a set of WS2812B LED strips and control them through the Lifx app. Is there a way to do this? If so how? I would preferably like to use an Arduino or WiFi module. As I am very new to coding I am not sure the path to go. I have found this project but I am not sure if it will still work, and furthermore, I don’t know what to do with the project.



Your LED strip would have to support the LIFX LAN protocol for that to work.

So if you can put that software on an arduino and then connect your LED strip to that, then that potentially could work.

And by the looks of it, that project doesn’t do multizone messages, which makes sense cause that’d be specific to your custom LED strip.

Thanks for your reply!

Would a WiFi module work with the LAN protocol?
