Thank you for your reply. Very informative and helpful!
Question: So as far as local vs cloud execution, the LIFX bulbs are triggered and controller via cloud-cloud communication over WiFi via our ST hub, and the hue bulbs are controlled locally over Zigbee via the ST hub…
It seems to me that most people on here(and other related forums, websites, etc.) tend to prefer locally executing devices due to speed, but also in the sense that if there were to be a ST hub power failure/“blip” at my location, ST hub firmware update, ST system wide outage(Unfortunately, we’ve seen many of those in the past several months.), etc., my locally running devices(I actually have several “local” devices–outlets, bulbs, etc. But in this case, I’m specifically referring to my hue bulbs.) shouldn’t be adversely affected by such temporary hub outages?
While on the other hand, all non-local devices, my cloud executing devices(such as these LIFX bulbs), will “flicker” or turn off altogether until the ST hub is back up and running properly? Or would such bulbs as these LIFX bulbs need to be switched back on via manually turning them back on via an app/smartapp, routine(scheduled or manually run), etc.?
