Could LIFX be next company to shut down? (No - it got bought by Feit Electric instead)

near the bottom of the article posted below…

Which company will be next to shut off its servers? Smart lighting manufacturer LIFX’s parent company has gone into receivership, and despite the company’s protestations on Reddit that all is fine, it’s hard not to worry.

I wouldn’t worry about the LIFX servers. The LIFX bulbs can be controlled locally. Just SmartThings has chosen the way to control them through C2C. The old integration used to be a Local Polling one.

But I cannot remember that can the bulbs be set up without the servers…

Sounds like they need an edge driver then :slight_smile:
