I was gifted a LIFX Mini Colo[u]r lamp in one of these:
I would like to set it up to be driven as intended via IFTTT, …
talk to it directly from my Raspberry PI that computes and publishes grid intensity here:
I don’t have a suitable Android or iOS device to run the LIFX app.
I have managed to talk directly to the lamp with (github) samclane/LIFX-Control-Panel from a Windows 10 laptop.
I am assuming (yes, probably wrongly!) that if I want connectivity to IFTTT then I somehow need to get my WiFi SSID and key into the lamp for it then to become a WiFi client. I am happy to write extremely low-level network code if need be. Or am I barking up the wrong tree?
