LIFX Android App & Home Assistant 0.29.3

We are gradually adding more smart home devices to our apartment and subsequently have started to build out a Home Assistant install on a RaspberryPi 3. However, I’m running into an issue with some of our LIFX bulbs and have a few questions:

  • If we use the LIFX app on Android to turn off/turn on a bulb this change doesn’t get reflected in the Home Assistant site, is there a way around this?

  • If I switch a device on or off via Home Assistant sometimes (haven’t figured out the pattern yet) this may cause the bulb to appear as unreachable via the Lifx android app.

Any guidance or tips would be greatly appreciated.
