Hi . I am new here, but would like to use VB.net (because I have some familiarity with VB) to control lifx lights in my home, in conjunction with other functions.
I have never done coding to send packets across a LAN, so am newbie there. I know from the past that the best way to learn is to see snippets and piece them together for my own purposes…until my understanding rises through familiarity.
Initially I am only trying to understand the basics… I have read the Lifx provided doc on LAN protocols and have spent some time piecing together packets, however I need some help and pointers (and basic code examples) to get me going.
- To discover the bulbs,
- Send packets to individual bulbs, or as a whole,
If anyone could please help, by providing me a few vb.net samples for the above to kick start my learning…it would be greatly appreciated.
