I was just wondering if it would be possible to do a plug-in to control lifx light bulbs you have for the Philip Hue lights? I use Lifx light bulbs and it would be nice to have the same feature that the Hue lights have in emby. Not sure if it could be done, but just I would ask.

@Headfritz

I looked at the API. They are pretty stringent on who they let access their public redirect and authentication endpoints.

Question: in the UI on the bridge are you able to create auth tokens? The API doc says you can, just wondering what that looks like.

I have generated a token quite easy, Just have know Idea what to do with it.  The Token is a string of 60 or so numbers and letters.

That's good news, we'd use that auth token in requests to the API to trigger scenes for playback.

Is it okay to follow up with you about testing such a plugin.

I don't own lifx , but I didn't own a Phillips hue bridge either. So if you're okay with some testing. We can probably get it working :)

I have Lifx bulbs so could help too. I did have a quick look last year to see if I could control using the Emby Webhooks but I didn't get very far  :D
