Lifx API Integrations

Build and run workflows using the Lifx API. Use 1000s of source-available triggers and actions across 2,100+ apps. Or write custom code to integrate any app or API in seconds.

Overview

With the Lifx API, you have the power to control your Lifx smart lights programmatically. This API lets you change the color, brightness, and power state of your bulbs, and it also allows you to access information on the lights' settings and environment. Pipedream's serverless platform leverages this functionality to create automations that can be triggered by various events. You can set your lights to respond to external factors like the weather, implement them into your smart home routines, or sync them with your productivity apps for visual notifications.

Example Use Cases

  • Smart Weather Alerts: Combine Lifx with a weather API on Pipedream to change the color of your lights based on the current weather. For instance, if rain is forecasted, your lights could glow blue to remind you to bring an umbrella when you leave the house.

  • Meeting Reminder System: Integrate Lifx with Google Calendar using Pipedream. Set your office lights to blink or change to a specific color when you have an upcoming meeting. This can serve as a visual cue that it's time to wrap up what you're doing and prep for the meeting.

  • Home Security Alerts: Use motion detection from smart home security cameras or systems, and have Pipedream trigger your Lifx bulbs to flash red when unexpected movement is detected at home. This could potentially scare off intruders and alert you to check your security feeds.

Authentication

Lifx uses OAuth authentication. When you connect your Lifx account, Pipedream will open a popup window where you can sign into Lifx and grant Pipedream permission to connect to your account. Pipedream securely stores and automatically refreshes the OAuth tokens so you can easily authenticate any Lifx API.

Pipedream requests the following authorization scopes when you connect your account:

remote_control:all
OAuth Request Configurations:
  1. authorization
    GEThttps://cloud.lifx.com/oauth/authorize?client_id={{oauth.client_id}}&redirect_uri={{oauth.redirect_uri}}&state={{oauth.state}}&response_type=code&scope={{oauth.space_separated_scopes}}
  2. accessToken
