I just got my first bulbs two days ago (mini dawn/dusk). I’ve integrated them with Apple Homekit and my Nest products. I created a wake up schedule to turn them on at 5:45AM. For some reason they are turning themselves on around 5:20AM. I’ve looked through the various apps and I’m not seeing any commands written for this behavior so, I’m guessing it must be something driven either by location or movement (perhaps our dog). Anyway I’m looking to see if there is anywhere I can see an actual command history to the bulb so, I don’t have to unpair all my other services to troubleshoot this.
Thanks in advance.
Unfortunately, there is no way to retrieve a history from the bulb itself. Though, sometimes the nice folks at LIFX can review the cloud logs for your bulb’s MAC address and at least see if the request came from a cloud connection or associated app.
I think LIFX should allow all users to access bulb command history from within our accounts. It would definitely help me troubleshoot some Alexa and IFTTT issues.
I’m in the Cloud team and we’ve discussed this a few times. It’s something we have a desire to make one day, however there has always been competing priorities that means we haven’t been able to make it just yet.
I can’t talk about how we prioritise work but I also don’t want to get your hopes up. It’s unlikely we’ll been able to make this anytime soon.
But we definitely agree this would be a useful thing for users to have.
