LIFXstyle 3.0.4

LIFXstyle was created to help usher in a world where you feel safer in your home, save energy, and can enjoy lighting effects from cosy to practical. LIFXstyle gives you manual control over your LIFX Bulbs bulbs and makes it easy to schedule them for when you’re not around. Plus other reassuring security features.

  • Manual control over each bulb and groups of bulbs
  • Control groups of bulbs with a single touch
  • Appear to be at home even when you’re not by scheduling your lights to switch on and off, or up and down.
  • (Unlike Philips Hue bulbs, a computer needs to be kept on for scheduling to work)
  • Scheduled times can be slightly randomised so they don’t look as if they’re on a timer
  • Responds to sound and can turn light(s) up (returns to previous state after a preset time)
  • ‘False dawn’ and ‘False dusk’ which can be scheduled or started manually (just dusk) for lamps or groups
  • Access your presets really quickly by assigning your F keys or from the status bar
  • LIFX Bulbs bulbs are low-power LED bulbs with all of the benefits of dimmers, time switches, and colour adjustment
  • ‘Badges’ dock icon with the number of lamps lit
  • OS X 10.10 Yosemite and Retina screens supported


Version 3.0.4 (beta):

  • Control strips can only be dragged using the little grippie in the corner, preventing accidental and confusing drags when you accidentally miss a slider
  • Control strips take into account the capabilities of the lamp (e.g., hiding the warmth and colour controls if the lamp can only display a fixed white light)
  • Efficiency improvements


OS X 10.9 or later, 64-bit processor
