Buddy Technologies (BUD) has announced that Microsoft has certified the LIFX Power Automate Connector, and is deploying it to all Azure regions worldwide.

The Connector is now live in the Southeast Asia, East Asia, Europe, Brazil, Canada, Japan, and India regions, with the remainder expected to follow by the end of the month. Currently, there are 58 Azure regions worldwide, reaching 140 countries.

The LIFX Power Automate Connector provides a seamless and automatic way to integrate the LIFX smart lighting technology into business workflows.

Customers can now connect their LIFX lights to business actions using Microsoft Power Automate – even if those business actions don’t include Microsoft software. This means that LIFX smart lights can be used as virtual business dashboards, indicators or warning lights.

Basically, this means LIFX smart lights can flash when conference calls are about to start, when emails arrive from particular people, once documents have been signed; or have lights turn a set brightness and colour scheme once video calls start.

The integration of LIFX and Microsoft Power Automate stemmed from COVID-19 forcing a significant percentage of employees across the world to work from home. During this time, usage of Microsoft Teams has skyrocketed, creating a need for improved technologies and for making work from home environments more efficient.

The certification and deployment of the LIFX Power Automate Connector gives LIFX the opportunity to sell into commercial and work from home environments.

It also allows the business to work alongside enterprise software vendors that also offer Power Automate Connectors including SAP, Salesforce, DocuSign, Twitter, Dropbox, Facebook, Atlassian Jira and more.

Company shares are up a healthy 20 per cent and are trading for 1.2 cents each at 3:48 pm AEST.
