Did LIFX change its NetworkID Addressing scheme?

So, LIFX devices used to be addressed inside of SmartThings by exposing it’s MAC address to as the Device Network ID… it seems to have changed this now - new LIFX bulbs I add have a long, convoluted ID, which begins with the bulb type.

Is everyone else seeing this? Will it cause issues?


If the device type displays as Placeholder then most likely it will show a long ID and there is nothing to be concerned about

It did, yes - I changed to a LIFX color bulb, but it originally came in as Placeholder.

Thanks @jkp - appreciate the response

LIFX was one of the first many months ago to move from the Groovy integration to the new Schema integration. That’s the difference you see.
