Feature Request: After action, return to original state

Through IFTTT and such, I want to be able to flash a lamp in a particular color in response to an event. Currently at my house I have one lamp dedicated for this purpose, but at my parent’s house they don’t have an extra lamp just to use as an “event/indicator lamp”. So I want to be able to flash their table lamp for an event, then have the lamp go back to whatever state it was prior to the event. I don’t know in IFTTT if the lamp was on previously, or off, what color, brightness, etc… Would be a nice “advanced option” to be able to say “do this, then return to initial state”.

I believe the pulse effect is probably what you’re looking for.


Thank you. I did not realize it would go back to its original state with that even if off. Thank you, again!
