How to get status of plug?

Hey there! First time posting.

I’m using IFTT to do some cool stuff with my plug, mostly driven through code. However, something I need to be able to do is query for status – is the plug on or off – at a given moment.

I can’t seem to figure out how I might do this, and since there’s no open API to directly query the device I’m a bit lost. I realize that it’s possible since the app can clearly show me the status of the plug AND allow me to flip it with a tap, so I am hoping to figure out how to expose that first bit of functionality.

Any pointers are greatly appreciated.

Hi @ahagouel and welcome to the Communnity forum!
There is a bit of problem to resolve. Here is the update:


I don’t believe there is currently a way to query the status, you can turn on and turn off through IFTTT but not see the status.

Can’t believe you’re confirming my fears! :sob: :wink:

If not through IFTT, any ideas on how I might I get device status programmatically?

I am not sure, there are many smart people here and hopefully if someone does know they will chime in.


If you want to do it with some code you can use my unofficial node package


Legendary. I’ll check this out, it’ll actually come in handy with other pieces around the experience like network delays interacting via IFTT.

I get the business case that exposing an API to these devices decreases interaction through the app / partnerships, but wow would it be useful for devs.
