Plugin for Home Automation

I have an overhead light mounted on my printer table.  Occasionally I want to show someone a project I'm printing when I'm away.  I can view the camera on my phone, however if it's dark I need to turn on the lights.  I have a Wink home automation system, and can use the Wink App to turn on the light.  I think it would be cool if there was a button on the Server Home page to turn on lights.   Maybe a simple button that runs a script.  I can write the script to turn on and off the lights.  Or a connection to IFTTT, then it would work with any Smart Home system.  Just a thought.


  • No problem. You can add global or per printer menu entries that call a script, see advanced setup in our manual. The forum also contains some threads around the permission problem since scripts are started with the user running the server, so it must work for that user or sudo must be allowed for that user/app combo without password query like in the shutdown example.
