Control LIFX devices over the internet using CircuitPython.
This driver depends on:
You’ll also need a library to communicate with an ESP32 as a coprocessor using a WiFiManager object. This library supports connecting an ESP32 using either SPI or UART.
Please ensure all dependencies are available on the CircuitPython filesystem. This is easily achieved by downloading the Adafruit library and driver bundle.
Installing from PyPI¶
On supported GNU/Linux systems like the Raspberry Pi, you can install the driver locally from PyPI. To install for current user:
pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-lifx
To install system-wide (this may be required in some cases):
sudo pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-lifx
To install in a virtual environment in your current project:
mkdir project-name && cd project-name python3 -m venv .venv source .venv/bin/activate pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-lifx
Initialize the LIFX API Client with a WiFiManager object and a LIFX Personal Access token:
lifx = adafruit_lifx.LIFX(wifi, lifx_token)
Set a LIFX selector label to identify the LIFX device to communicate with.
lifx_light = 'label:Lamp'
List all connected LIFX devices:
lights = lifx.list_lights()
Toggle the state of a LIFX device:
Set the brightness of a LIFX device to 50%:
Set the color of a LIFX device to blue and the brightness to 100%:
lifx.set_color(lifx_light, 'on', 'blue', brightness=1.0)
