LIFX, HomeKit, & Homebridge

We picked up a replacement LIFX Z Strip adapter for Liam this past summer and it seems we didn’t have the HomeKit code recorded anywhere. Using LIFX’ instructions we were able to see where it was suppose to be, but the sticker was cracked up and deformed – luckily we still made it out.

Then we noticed HomeKit incorrectly showed one of his older Z Strips, added using a Homebridge plugin, needed a firmware update. Seems the HomeKit plugin needs to be tweaked to allow older LIFX firmware versions to remain. shuether figured this out on a similar plug-in, so I brought it to the attention of folks on the homebridge-lifx-plugin. Hopefully they can help me develop a fix or workaround.
