Grab the updated products.py from here: https://github.com/mclarkk/lifxlan/tree/master/lifxlan

And use it to replace the copy in the add-on zip (..\resources\lib\lifxlan\products.py)

Don't grab the whole folder and overlay it, just the products.py file - there are other changes to the the lifxlan package that will cause the add-on to fail.  At the very least it now requires the python package netifaces which has C code that needs to be built.  Didn't feel like going down that road today, running this on my shield tv.

This does work, if a bit janky, on a current SPMC from the play store, and I assume Kodi 16/17.  Does not work at all on 18 nightlies.

Unfortunately, it looks like if a bulb doesn't acknowledge an update the add-on throws an exception and stops running.  This seems to happen pretty reliably after 10 - 20 mins of playback.  I quite like the bulbs so far, and this add-on seems like it could be amazing with a bit more attention.
I updated the version of lifxlan in latest version but excluding the changes made to the lifxlan module to include netifaces module as I don't want the addon to be machine dependant. It should work with all current Lifx products.
