Is there a way to add a “when this turns on/off” to the tplink plugs?
Nope - we don’t get events from TP-Link. They said they want to support this in the future.
How about a simpler "if on"/"If off" for TP-Link switches? This must be supported in the api since I can ask Google Home if a TP-Link switch is on or off, but it's not in Stringify.
We don’t poll or support ‘asking’ when a flow runs.
How is that different from when my flow checks the status of the current weather report using the Weather Thing?
@Kris any chance this is something TP-Link have enabled and is in the dev pipeline? It would be SO much better than my convoluted system of connect flows and variables to control my devices. I have loads of flows that would benefit from knowing the status of my TP-Link switches and plugs as both triggers and conditions.
