IFTTT "ignore: power" no longer works?


I have been using my IFTTT to set different LIFX scenes automatically depending on the time of day.

I use the advanced option parameter “ignore: power” to ensure the lights stay in the off state if I’m away or asleep.

About a week ago, it seems the “ignore: power” parameter stopped working, so now my lights always switch on when triggered by IFTTT. This is quite inconvenient, especially when I’m asleep.

Is anyone else experiencing this? Any tips on how else to set scenes via IFTTT without changing the power state of the bulbs?


Hi Adam,

We are in the middle of upgrading our IFTTT implementation and it seems that we missed that functionality from our legacy implementation. We will reimplement that as soon as possible. Thank you for notifying us and apologies for the inconvenience we have caused.


Thankyou Carl & team - it looks like this has been rectified now.
