This SmartThings device handler allows you to create a "virtual" device based on a single LIFIX group or a set of LIFX groups.

Example 1: If you have a group called "Kitchen" and a group called "Dining Room", you can create a group of groups called "First Floor" (or whatever) and add the two LIFX groups to it. You can treat the two groups as a single device. This handles up to 10 groups per device.

Example 2: If you have a single group within the LIFX called "Kitchen" you can add it and control your set of lights as a single device called, you guessed it "Kitchen" (or whatever else).

This device handler also supports scenes.
