Description

Summon a thunderstorm light show using your LIFX lights. Watch your lights pulse and flash to the sounds of a storm.*

*Internet connection and LIFX Cloud account required.

THUNDERSTORMS

• Strong Thunderstorm — Heavy rain with frequent lightning and thunder nearby

Lights pulse quickly to the sound of heavy rain. Booming sounds of thunder accompany bright flashes of light.

• Normal Thunderstorm — Steady rain with a full range of lightning and thunder

Lights pulse to the sound of rain. The sound of thunder can be heard from various distances. The closer the lightning, the louder the sound, and the brighter the flashes of light!

• Weak Thunderstorm — Light rain with occasional lightning and thunder far off

Lights pulse slowly to the sound of light rain. Dim flashes of light are followed by soft sounds of thunder.

• Passing Thunderstorms — Rain and lightning intensity changes as the storms pass

Lights pulse and flash at different rates to correspond with the current strength of the storm.

LIGHTS / GROUPS

Select one or more lights for your thunderstorm light show on the Lights/Groups tab. Choose a group that you set up using your LIFX app, or create a new group in the Thunderstorm for LIFX app. To edit an in-app group in the list, swipe the item to the left and tap the pencil icon. When you add, remove, or change lights, pull down the list to refresh.

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

• Sleep Timer with audio fade out. Sleep End State setting lets you choose what happens to the state of the lights when the sleep timer ends.
• Bluetooth and AirPlay supported via Control Center. Delay Lightning setting lets you choose how much time to delay the lightning to compensate for the wireless audio delay.

I'd love to hear your thoughts and appreciate you taking the time to rate the app. By leaving a review, I can continue to improve Thunderstorm for LIFX and create a great experience for you and future users. Thank you! —Scott
