I am busy writing an app to control LimitlessLEd lights and am having hassles getting it to work.


I am writing in VisualStudio 2017 using C#.


I am able to get the SessionStart  receiving 28-00-00-00-11-00-02-F0-FE-6B-26-29-66-5F-B8-80-CE-00-01-B5-00-00 after sending startup command.


using the session ids B5 00 I then send command to port 5987 to switch lights on using 80-00-00-00-11-B5-00-00-02-00-31-00-00-00-03-03-00-00-00-01-00-38


{Bridge on} and get response 88-00-00-00-03-00-02-01. No lights on :(




Using the limitlessLed admin app(v6) it does not switch the lights on either.


below is output from admin tool


Sent: 80 00 00 00 11 EF 00 00 18 00 31 00 00 08 04 01 00 00 00 00 00 3E
Received: 88 00 00 00 03 00 18 00
Command completed. 


using the milightv3 app does control the lights and the remote works as normal too. I'm stuck... any help would be appreciated

I have been able to resolve the issue on my own. It turns out that the main problem I had was maintaining a single udpclient session and ensuring I was using the RGBW command set. Between detecting the bridge and collecting a valid set of session ids I did have to use 2 separate instances of a UDPCLient.
