Tasker plugin - Req for additional feature: "get status"

Hello,
I have an android phone and I use your official Yeelight/yeelink app in “Tasker”.

Using the plugin - there is NO WAY to get the current status of the bulb from either tasker or your plugin to it.
I can toggle, turn on/off etc… BUT I CAN’T GET ANY INFO ON THE CURRENT STATUS OF THE BULB.

please add such feature to the Yeelight tasker plugin.

P.S - I know that there’s a TCP command named “get_prop” (" retrieve current property of smart LED") which should return data in format like: {“id”:1, “result”:[“on”, “”, “100”]}

I hope that when you’ll add such “get prop” feature to the plugin - you’ll be able to insert the data into a VARIABLE ARRAY OR to multple variables - as much as needed to get all the info possible.

I hope you’ll add such feature to the Tasker plugin of Yeelight.
Thanks.
NM

You can get the status of the bulbs by using the Send/Expect plugin for Tasker.

i’m sure there’s even other options like adb command so there’s no need of any plugin - BUT, Yeelight have already embed a tasker plugin in their app, they’ve already embed the feature to toggle/turn on or off, set scenes etc in their yeelight app’s tasker plugin - SO WHY NOT INCLUDING “GET PROP” OPTION AS WELL ??

thus my request for additional feature for the next app version - so me and other ppl around the world won’t be needing to break the head when we want to make a short & small tasker script…
it’s not that it isn’t possible… its just little bit more coding from Yeelink team ( Yeelight app dev ).

@coasterli @dingyichen other Yeelight stuff…
Can you please add such feature in the next Yelight android app update ?

There’re lots of properties we defined in the lamp, so which property do you want to get?

Thanks for the reply.
it would be best if we could get them all - but if you must limit then:

  • power
  • bright
  • ct
  • rgb
  • sat
  • color_mode
  • name
  • flowing

( i.e personally I don’t need all the “background” BG_* properties, since I only got 1 bulb )

if you could add in the plugin another sub-category “get_property” that when I press it I can choose which property to retrieve ( one / many from a list ) it would be great.
The idea is similar to the “scene” sub-category currently exist in the plugin, i.e the user add in tasker the plugin task-> choose the bulb -> choose “scene”-> then a whole new screen opens up with all the scenes… so similar to this, if you can please add a “get properties” button that will open up a new screen with list of possible properties that the user can choose from ( one or many ) it would be great.
